“THE LANDSCAPE IN EVERY SENSE” WORKSHOP 1

Bring your senses and artistic side to life with the family! Your children do more than just admire the landscape; they feel it, hear it, touch it and even create it. The group leader at Salève Visitor Centre brings you an interactive workshop to awaken all the family’s senses. Children spend the hour making a 3D map of the area as a souvenir of their trip to the top of Mont Salève.
