Are you joining this adventurous trip along the trail of the Sabre-toothed tiger?

In the fairy-tale-like forest of the Hunzebos you can find the trail of the Sabre-toothed tiger, a playful hike of about 2 kilometers for fearless kids.
The trail winds through the forest and over the ice-age hills. You’ll climb, swing on ropes, balance on rickety bridges, swoosh downhill on a cable runway and much more.
Along the way you can play exciting games using the app and test your speed and skills against that of the Sabre-toothed tiger. And you’ll learn about the impressive Mammoth that once lived here.
