The site is an adventure lodge and hostel located in the outskirts of Urubici city in the state of Santa Catarina. We offer you a very pleasant, cozy atmosphere, with beautiful mountainous landscapes among the main tourist attractions of the region. Our goal is to provide unique moments and unforgettable experiences. We offer ample space full of trails between a nebular forest of native Araucarias, bordering the picturesque Rio do Bispo with its clean and crystalline waters. Because we are neighbors of the National Park of Serra Geral, we offer alternative accommodations in strategic points of the forest where one can enjoy the most beautiful landscapes.
If hotels offer 5 stars we offer constellations of them, the sky here has no light interference from the cities so the nights are usually extremely bright.
Besides trekking amongst the pristine mountains, this is also a beautiful environment to cycle, mountain bike and experience horse riding.
Please note that we share our home with 2 dogs (sometimes 3) and four cats :)
We hope to see you soon!

We wish for you to live in and explore the surroundings here. To be open, and willingly connect with the essence, the Nature of the space, to learn how to live symbiotically with Nature as opposed to fearing her. Here you have the opportunity to observe and learn about the native flora and fauna, especially the Araucarias that are endemic to this area, and that also provide us with a nutritious food. We live communally and share the general tasks, so we want you to understand this sense of community. Interact with and enjoy the activities and cultural differences that are available here; enjoy different foods, drinks and exchange languages (here we speak Brasileiro, Hebrew, French as well as English).
We are also able to offer other various skills and share knowledge; survival tactics, trekking and explanations of geographical happenings, plants and animals, bonding with as well as riding horses...
If you are interested in learning something particular, all you need to do is ask :)
