Discovering butterflies: meet Vanessa and Cleopatra

Do we know many butterfly names? How many days do they live? What do they eat? What happens if we touch their wings? Are there fewer now than before? We will solve these and other questions in an activity designed to enjoy nature and learn how important these animals are. We will get to know aspects of their life and behavior and learn to identify some species that live in La Garrotxa. And with a little luck, we’ll see Vanessa or Cleopatra flying as well.

Landscapes and gastronomy in the volcanic area of La Garrotxa

A guided visit to La Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park, and a cooking workshop.  We visited the Croscat volcano (one of the youngest on the peninsula, which today allows us to see how looks the interior of a volcano) and La Fageda d’en Jordà (a beech forest on a idyllic and bucolic landscape). In the afternoon, we do a cooking workshop with seasonal local products while we prepare the lunch. We recommend you stay in a rural tourism house in the area.
