    Chasing the Fireflies (Mom & Kids trip)



We have all witnessed and chased fireflies as children. There was a certain magic in those quick, shining flickering lights in the dark. Of course, with time glaring neon lights took over our night sky.

Relive your childhood with your kid, and witness thousands of those fireflies. Come with us on Coorg, and live in the beautiful time bubble, where things are green, natural and beautiful. Learn about organic cultivation and solar living.

Who’s up for some green-bonding with her darling child!! To book seat for your children, contact us on [email protected] or 080-39510700.

Night walk, with the rhythm of the cicadas reveals the highlight –  several fireflies blinking in unison in a pristine natural setting. Overnight at the plantation.

We are staying right in the middle of nature. We will be spending all our time amidst an organic coffee estate. We emphasize on “organic” because that ensures a lot of biodiversity that otherwise gets obliterated in a pesticide ridden environment. This place hosts a lot of naturalists and biologists who come for their research in Coorg and also is long term home to very many photographers. It is almost completely electrified through solar power.


Simple organic food at the estate

Note > Prepare > Accept > Embrace

  • Do expect bit of walking, although you can choose to opt out and relax in the estate if you or your child is not upto it.
  • The experience of community living is a highlight of this trip. We will be sharing the accommodation as the cottages are big enough to accommodate a family. The attic at the top of the house is the favourite play area for children. The feeling of living at home is what we will try to build up.
  • The trip is planned around kids and is intended as a bonding experience for you and your child. We will be soaking in Coorg and its biodiversity and witness the fireflies in abundance, but sightseeing of major attractions are not a part of the plan.
