Hot breakfast prepared with the trapper's method, a good way to take forces for this day of excursion which will be devoted to the recognition of the wildlife indices.
The tipi is the nomadic settlement of the Indians of the plains. It is a fresh residence in summer, warm in winter.
By its form, its proportions, the emotion which it causes, the cordial atmosphere that it gets, the tipi offers a magic immersion in nature and an exceptional experiment to divide in family or with friends!
Its interior bathes in a soft light which falls from the chimney and diffuses trough the translucent walls. Place of roomy, comfortable and solid life, which resists perfectly the attacks of the high winds, or the pouring rain.
It gets the single impression to be at the same time under a robust shelter and in contact with the external world, the noise of the wind, the rain, the snow or the glare of the sun. A tipi is before a whole space with living supporting the communication and the exchange.
