Go Logging with a 25-Year Veteran of the Forestry Industry!
A special experience that allows participants to try their hand at forestry work in an area usually closed to the public, under the supervision of a professional forester.
Participants will travel from the station with a tour guide-interpreter by bus to the forest, where they will have lunch. After lunch, participants will learn about the rope work involved in logging before witnessing the exhilarating moment a tree is felled. Afterwards, participants will be able to have a go at log cutting themselves with the tree they saw cut down.
