Take a Walk Through the Everglades
For this walking program, the Big Cypress Institute has partnered with Everglades Nature Tours to create an unforgettable experience. This walking tour will keep you in awe as you venture through the umbrellaed cool water, cross-grass, rock, cypress trees, vegetation, Spanish moss, and fern trails.
What makes our Big Cypress walking tour truly special is that your tour guide is a true gladesman/hunter. He will be able to point out more animal life and tracks than just a guy looking for his paycheck. In fact, our guides live, eat and breathe these woods and have been trampling through them for over 35 years!
This trek through the North American “Amazon” will have you taking in breathtaking views of beautiful and exotic wildflowers, trees and animal life found nowhere else in the world. If we challenged you to get dirty on Swamp Mud, we triple dog dare you to get down and dirty by “Walking on the Wild Side.”
So step out of the city and let’s go for a mucky adventure walk together. This vastly preserved ecosystem will surprise even the most educated biologist/naturalist visiting! Just select whether you’d like a private or semi-private tour.
