The PicNic sessions

The idea for the Picnic Sessions was born out of Leticia Liga and the desire to search for destinations and sites that can host unforgettable outdoor activities. A series of excursions designed to share our passion for nature and offer a different approach to outdoor activities. So we designed excursions that combine outdoor activities with a picnic, trying out tastes according to the season and the region. We invite you to follow us on this series of excursions and experiences and to see nature from a different perspective. This is The Picnic Session!

Upon request there is the possibility for a date and schedule of your choice. See below for more information on the upcoming daily PicNic Sessions.
