After the breakfast, early in the morning canoeing along the San Francisco stream, which flows into the Natural Reserve. This is the right moment for a photo-safari and general fauna observation. The Forest water streams are highly important for the Ecosystem: they are life corridors. Padding these gentle waters is extremely relaxing and gives us the opportunity to move along the Gallery forests in silence. In this environment, seed dispersal occurs differently. Root systems have adapted to flood Soils.
Salt patches are very common on the shores of these streams, and wild animals often seek these places, therefore it is common to find animal footprints and traces in the muddy shores. The water activity lasts almost 3 hours.
Back to the Lodge at mid-morning.
Free time to walk the gardens of the Lodge searching for curious natural details and simply enjoy the facilities of the Lodge (swimming pool, optional Yoga and Meditation practices, etc.).
Interpretative walks in the afternoon, conducted by expert guides who provide good information on the several natural environments, their Flora and Fauna associated. This is an ecosystem rich in biodiversity, old-growth trees, medicinal plants, orchids, bromeliads, butterflies, beetles, birds and mammals that combine to provide the key to interpretation and astonish us with a very intense natural contact inside Misiones Forest.
Night walk. The Jungle at night. We wait for the night to come. The sounds of Nature produce a very complex symphony. We silently take part of this scene. The owls start their activities. Above us, the Milky Way becomes our ceiling. This might be a suitable description of this walk organized by Yacutinga Lodge’s environmental Guides. The aim is to sharpen our senses.
