Immersed in the enchanting scenery of the Valnerina, treat yourself to a pleasant day out in perfect harmony with nature. An excellent opportunity to have fun and escape from your daily routine.If you love outdoor activities, why not participate in an educational stroll in the countryside, where you will learn to recognize different plant species, both edible wild herbs and those intended for medicinal use. You’ll rediscover a useful and valuable activity that’s deeply rooted in traditional cooking and medicine, now being revived by up-to-date educational ‘field trips’.The walk will take in meadows, lush fields and densely-enveloping woods where you’ll be able to discover different types of flowers and herbs with heady aromas and scents, bright colours and specific flavour profiles; you’ll train your eyes and your other senses in search of various species, rediscovering the genuine gifts of nature.You’ll be accompanied by our experts, who will be able to give you the information and explanations you need to recognize the different species. At the end of the walk, you will have the chance to create an herbarium with the different species collected during the day and you can round off the day by tasting particular dishes made with the fruit, flowers and herbs collected during the excursion.Whether you participate in the educational walk alone or share it with your family or friends, you’ll enjoy a pleasant and peaceful day rediscovering nature and its precious gifts.At the end of the experience you can taste what you’ve collected and other typical local produce over lunch or dinner (depending on whether you choose the morning or afternoon option) prepared by our collaborators, including two courses and drinks.
Ci sarà una prima introduzione alle erbe spontanee della Valnerina, per poi iniziare la camminata e la raccolta, con tutta la spiegazione da parte della guida. Al termine dell'attività raccoglieremo le erbe in un raccoglitore e inizieremo a degustare fantastiche ricette a base di quello che è stato appena raccolto e ciò che di altro offre il territorio.
