In-Congress Tours

On Thursday, October 3, we will offer a series of excursions for all participants. They are valuable opportunities to get acquainted with the forestry research carried out in the area around where Congress will take place.

We are working to provide participants with meaningful technical and cultural experiences.

You will have the opportunity to choose visits to areas of scenic interest, forestry companies, traditional communities or research institutions.

At the time of your registration, you may already be able to indicate your interest in several of these visits, but keep in mind that the schedule may change based on the general interest.
