This is different to most places I have visited. The actual building is amazing, all made of wood, and the rooms... Well, what surprised me most was that they had no outer walls!! So you are in direct contact with the forest and all its sounds, amazing! The bathroom is another surprise... The guides were good, and the walks very pleasant, if you like nature and wildlife. Have a look at the pictures to get an idea.
Make sure the wellington boots you use don't have a crack like mine did!!
