Feel Wild

A unique experience on the suspended hut in the Ghirardi Nature Reserve

From 10:30 on Saturday to 17:30 on Sunday

Ghirardi Nature Reserve - Val Taro - Borgo val di Taro (PR)

The small hut in the woods suspended between the canopy of the forest trees of the Ghirardi Nature Reserve and WWF Oasis, no light, no telephone, to be completely immersed in nature alone, away from noise and confusion. A completely ecological and environmentally friendly zero environmental impact hut, the dishes are washed and cleaned with the ash recycled from the wood stove to have no environmental impact on the territory. The food (local and at Km 0) will be prepared on the small wood stove, a suggestive natural pool in the nearby stream to cool off and the bathroom is a small and welcoming compost toilet immersed in the woods. You sleep at a height of 0 meters on cots and a sleeping bag, a small stove to heat the room. Under the hut there is an area equipped for bivouacs with a supply of drinking water, where you can eat and rest in the hammocks in the shade of downy oaks lulled by the sounds of the forest.

What we will do

We will explore the different habitats of the Reserve, including badlands, woods, meadows, riverbanks and paths, looking for traces and signs of wolves, fallow deer, deer, roe deer, wild boars, badgers, foxes and of course wolves of the herd of the Reserve to try to be able to observe as many animals as possible. We will learn to move in silence and to observe animals without being seen.
We will spend two days immersed in nature, prepare the bivouac, collect wood, relax in the hammocks listening to the birds' songs and the sounds of the woods, eat local products prepared at the moment and when it will be dark we will go out for a short excursion where with the night viewer we can observe the animals without being seen.

What will we eat?

Breakfast with sourdough bread baked in a wood oven - jams, honey and cake, with coffee, barley, tea or herbal teas. Lunches and dinners with local products at km 0 from the producers of the valley.
