A Botanical Walk brings you into the heart of nature in Perigord and you'll meet all kinds of interesting plants and flowers. All year round there is something new to discover and every season has its own attractions. Walks are guided by Corine Oosterlee, botanist and photographer. She'll find you beautiful spots and paths far from the beaten track and show you their secrets, and tell you about plants and their life. A 'typical' walk takes about 3 heures over a distance of 1-5 km maximum. Corine will show you different habitats with many plants and wildflowers. Your walk will be adapted to your wishes (most walk or most botany) and botanical knowledge and preferences. We take our time to look, to talk, to take pictures.
WHEN AND HOW?
Botanical Walks are 'made to measure' fot you or your group. Distance, place, kind of habitats, species you are specially interested in, your botanical knowledge, every time of the year offers something to see. Contact me to tell me what you want and to know what is possible. Sometimes I propose a Botanical Walk on inscription. See here.
