In a full package that brings together energy, bliss, and fun, we activate the adrenaline thanks to this jeep tour. The activity combines a route through dirt tracks with the sense of freedom possible in bike rides and, also, with the adorable laziness of a kayak experience in the lagoon. From the transcendent heights we will descend towards the small town with its gracious peninsula spread along the water and, then, will set to explore the fantastic scenery that surrounds it. The multi-coloured soil and slopes; the clearings opened for walks at the sound of the running water and of the vibrating breeze; the flickering reflections of the sky and of the banks; the silent calmness of a place where the pure air covers the valley…
