Day 1

Meeting at 10.00 am at the Agriturismo Cà Cigolara in Borgo Val di Taro (PR) and supply of packed lunch. We start immediately on an excursion descending from the ridge of the hill along a prairie where roe deer love to rest. Some spectacular views of the valley lead us to the bed of the stream, here we can observe the presence of small invertebrates, reptiles and amphibians essential for a healthy ecosystem. We proceed into the dense forest of the Nature Reserve between majestic oaks and chestnut trees, we treasure all the traces found along the path that testify to the presence of many wild animals. Life in the reserve thrives for years undisturbed, deer, roe deer, wild boar, foxes and wolves will accompany us with the signs of their presence along the way. Once near the visitor center of the WWF oasis we can refresh ourselves just before attending the unique sheepdog show, the incredible activity of sheepdog dogs that lead an entire flock with simple commands given by inseparable master. The shepherds Elena and Roberto will accompany us on a journey of rediscovery of ancient crafts and a life still conducted in the pace of the seasons. Some taste of the fabulous cheeses produced from the milk of their sheep and we leave with a comfortable bus to return to the farm. Now we have plenty of time to settle in yurts and for a relaxing aperitif by the pool right in front of the majestic Mount Pelpi while just below us graze the last deer.
The farm dinner is a ritual of ancient traditions, from meat to vegetables to cheeses, everything is produced in the surroundings or even inside the farm, we will visit the vegetable garden, the cultivation of red fruits, the pig Teresa and the bull Red, as well as horses, chickens and rabbits. Before we sleep we allow ourselves a night excursion to listen to the calls of the night, birds of prey, wolves and even wolves echo in the valley and will accompany us throughout the night while we sleep in the heat of the Mongol yurts built entirely of wood fabric and wool.

Day 2

The awakening in yurt is a unique experience, the light of dawn that emerges from the colorful wooden door, the spectacle of the landscape that opens in front of us, the privileged position on the crest of the hill leaves us speechless every time. The breakfast with the jams produced in the farm will load us with a new energy to visit the nearby barn where milk is obtained for the production of Parmigiano Reggiano. From here we can reach the crystal clear water stream to immerse ourselves in the activities of Emotional wilderness and feel with all our senses the nature around.
