Spirit of Hossa - Hossa Games - program
ANCIENT GAMES - program
Drifting witch drum and the glow of bonfires leads you to the ancient world: hunter must tame the bear's spirit before felling. After felling hunter must lead the bear's spirit to its journey, so that it does not come back
to haunt the hunter.
The visitor competes in many skills through Ancient Games: lassoing, bear hunting with a spear, squirrel hunting with a crossbow, the world's evil stones, axe throwing (specific groups only), fishing (using torch light as a lure), animal recognition and tracking, and many more.
Games are relaxed fun and also a learning experience.
