Birding and nature photography opportunities are virtually limitless. The diversity of vegetation & the presence of freshwater (everywhere) makes this ecosystem a veritable smorgasbord for avian seed & insect eaters. Within an hour, we can travel up into an alpine environment where an entirely different collection of resident & migratory birds flourish.

Moving meditation” – participate in Vinyasa flow yoga with our accredited yoga teacher; either together on the bank of the river or from the lofty comfort of our sunny, tranquil deck.
