Respecting and understanding the environment is particularly topical these days. Trekking and kayaking are a sure way to know and appreciate nature.
These activities are usually reserved for adults, but SardinianDiscovery.com offers day-long programs to schools. These are a mix of theory and practice about hiking, trekking and kayaking, and are designed for children of all ages. The lessons and the practice will be calibrated according to their ages.
This is a typical Trekking course program for children: clothing for hiking, binoculars, using a compass, using an altimeter and a barometer, headlamps, Nordic sticks, backpack, maps, survival blanket, first aid kit
At breaks, during our walk, the children will become interested in using orienteering tools and will learn what is necessary to prepare a trip safely.
