Our dream is to bring you into nature and to the solitude of the awe-inspiring contrasts of this district, to sit on a rock and look out over the vast stretches of mountains, valleys and canyons. Touching weathered stones and indigenous bushes while soaking up the silence around you, and listening to the wind gently caressing the mountain tops. You're at one with nature, a feeling of well-being and contentment overcomes you. To this we add our knowledge of the unique mixture of flora and fauna, making the experience of this 15 000 of untouched wilderness so special.
