Another twisty up and down hike through one of our favourite forests. The hills of Olinda are always alive with sounds and sights, with many native and introduced species making the forest differ with every twist and turn. This walk is great for the mind and body, so join us, let us guide you, and let nature do it’s work, making you feel relaxed, rejuvenated and ready for a wonderful nights sleep.
