Our Activities

Activities during your stay at the lodge can be chosen based on your specific needs and interests. We will discuss and define a specific excursion program for you personally on the day of arrival.

All hikes and other activities in the forest and at the local sites take place after breakfast at 9am until noon and begin again in the afternoon at 2:30pm. Between activities you will enjoy an exquisite meal in our restaurant and a rest in your cabin.
