HIKING, GEOCACHING, TRAIL PHOTOGRAPHY

With the collaboration and presence of a rock instructor and geologist, we will get to know the mountain environment, orientation, weather, rigging and proper equipment and then plan daily trips in different settings putting in practice techniques learned for moving around safely in the mountain environment.  We will participate in a treasure hunt of a world-wide scale through www.geocaching-italia.com where the participants use GPS to hide and seek containers hidden in a special place in the middle of nature. We will stage/set up in the woods several infrared trail cameras, activated by movement, to immortalize wild animals crossing the trail.

TREKKING AND CAMP COOKING

Spending a night with friends in a chalet or tent is indeed a unique experience accessible to everyone.  With our experience and presence and with your collaboration, we will think of everything:  there is a lot to do and learn for a really special experience.  Where can you start a fire and which wood can you use?  How should stack the wood?  And when the embers are incandescent, when do you use the grill or the pan?  Meat, vegetables, and fragrant herbs, sauces, and crepes

SPORT

Sports activities constitute an important element every day in Bellamonte.

Sports are rediscovered here in a natural and spontaneous way with educational and pedagogical dimensions yet also in a playful, teambuilding*(my idea), and competitive manner that often seems lost.   Basketball, tennis, soccer/football, baseball, flag football, ultimate Frisbee, and movement games for the younger ones are all played in the superb surroundings of Bellamonte and its incredible scenery.  The breathtaking backdrop gives an element of poetry that makes these sports unforgettable.  

OUR FURRY FRIENDS

Eddie, a magnificent Bernese mountain dog, and 2 beautiful Shetland ponies, Joy and Lulù, will be our friends to brush and bring on our lovely walks in the green meadows and the enchanting woods of Bellamonte.  It’s educational to observe them, understand their emotions, to recognize their needs, and grasp their responses especially to have the ability to understand the relationship between humans and animals.  It will be useful to talk about the body language and how to be kind, calm and level-headed.

 

 

PARCO DI PANEVEGGIO – PALE DI SAN MARTINO

Six kilometers from Bellamonte, we find Parco di Paneveggio, a “corner of paradise in the Dolomites of eastern Trentino” with 2700 hectares of centuries-old fir and larch trees, called the “Forest of Violins” for its quality of Norway Spruce trees always used for the construction of musical instruments.  We will also find towering, white faces of the Dolomites, vertical precipices, red porphyry, an igneous rock consisting of large-grained crystals dispersed in groundmass, impenetrable walls, ravines carved by rushing torrents, rolling pastures, and flowery meadows.  We will visit the park to see the forest, water, rocks, flowers, animals, mushrooms, meadows, lakes, to find the little things that go unnoticed, the shapes and colors of nature, animal tracks, listening to the voices of the forest, the sound of water, rustling wind, and the scents and fragrance of the forest to get accustomed to the silence and movement of nature.
