By 6 May, 2019 No Comments

Our environmentally friendly guided tours for the whole family are intended to let you get to know the natural beauty of this area in a dynamic and entertaining experience for all ages.

Here, both adults and children work together to achieve the aims of the activity using bicycles to discover the whole of this nature reserve. All participants will have to pass the tests and overcome the challenges that are to be found at different points along the route. At the end of the excursion, the teams who have successfully passed all of the tests and overcome the challenges will receive a prize.

With a duration of some three (3) hours including breaks to refresh ourselves and gather our strength, the excursion includes a bottle of water for each participant followed by an energy bar or fruit for the children.
