Family adventure in the snow

Discovering the Dolomites with your children

How can we build a refuge in case of emergency? How do animals survive in the snow? And what does the farmer do in winter? Adventurer old and young can investigate such matters at the family adventure program. Together we will discover the winter woods and find out which animals roam across the the nature park in winter. We can help the farmer to do the typical works in winter. By learning the tricks we need to survive in an emergency in harsh surroundings, we will be well equipped for the winter.

Together we construct a refuge to protect us against the wind and cold of the winter. We will make tea with ingredients we collect ourselves, we will try to make fire without matches and learn first-hand how to cope in nature even with the very simplest resources.
