“We had such a lovely time at the ‘Day in the Forest’ adventure. My mom is still in heaven! It was one of our best days here in Goa. Thanks for being such lovely hosts, truly.”

Day in the Forest

November 2020

Day in the Forest

Venture into the hinterland of Goa, exploring the local villages and dense reserve forest areas. Trek into the forest and wade across networks of streams and rivulets– a relaxing, quiet and green paradise. Relish a picnic lunch prepared by a family from the local community. Explore one of Goa’s most offbeat forests in a responsible, local and offbeat way. Learn about the incredible biodiversity in the fringe forests near Bhagwan Mahaveer Wildlife Sanctuary. Enjoy a day off-the-grid and amidst nature. A chance to chill and hang-out by a beautiful seasonal swimming spot near a small waterfall and explore the forest.

Meet in the village near Bhagwan Mahaveer WLS. Enjoy a short hour-long walk into the forest (or, for the adventurous ones, a longer trail). Explore creatures along the local paths and the many shades of green. Reach a spot to hang out, and relax in a hammock and have a picnic.

Our experiences are 100% SAFE: Scenic, Adventurous, Fun and Educational. Every experience is led by a professional Wilderness First Aid certified nature guide. COVID-19 precautions are in place to ensure walks are safe and comfortable for all. As a responsible tourism operator, we take things slowly and with care.
