Delve deep into the world’s largest indoor rainforest with a private tour of the spectacular biome bubbles of Cornwall’s Eden Project. Spend a day like no other scaling canopy walkways and ambling through olive groves before relaxing in comfort at Carlyon Bay hotel; a luxurious four-star spa hotel with sweeping clifftop views.
Nestled in the lunar landscape of a disused Cornish clay pit, the ambitious charity project to educate and fascinate visitors with science and nature remains one of Britain's best leisure attractions. The micro-climate of Cornwall, with its subtropical plant life and mild, sunny weather, is the perfect gateway through which to experience the many faces of the natural world, changing and blooming with the seasons. Built in 1998 the Eden Project was developed to showcase the global interdependence of human and plant life and continues to explore ecological and sustainable ways of living. The cleverly constructed biomes house carefully controlled environments, taking guests from an English garden, into an Amazonian jungle, to a Mediterranean prairie and back again in what is one of the most unique and unusual experiences. With an expert guide, choose to explore either the Rainforest of Mediterranean Biome. Inside the Rainforest, discover how rainforests keep us alive and how to help conserve them, exploring a Malaysian garden, a cocoa and rubber plantation and spices that changed the world. Inside the Mediterranean, experience sights, scents and stories from the Mediterranean, South Africa and California. Take a journey from olive groves to flowers born of fire, heavenly scents to fallen gods, cowboys to cork, ancient cultures to new futures. After a day inside the global garden, relax in the four-star luxury of the modern and stylish Carlyon Bay hotel, near St. Austell. Located less than two miles from the Eden Project, Carlyon Bay hotel is positioned atop a cliff edge, with breathtaking sea views, as well as its own private beach, Carlyon Cove; the ideal retreat to make the most of Cornwall’s dramatic landscape. On a two-night stay, guests can enjoy use of the extensive holistic spa facilities, featuring a heated indoor pool, hot tub and steam room, as well as the 18-hole golf course, putting green and croquet lawn with equipment hire and expert golf tuition available. The hotel’s Bay View restaurant serves fresh seafood and fine vintage wines in formal surroundings, and for a more relaxed atmosphere, Taste Brasserie offers fine locally sourced produce, and the Spa Bar serves light meals on the terrace. For a supplement, upgrade the 'Chocolate-flavoured' Rainforest private tour. Take a journey around the Rainforest finding out about chocolate's secrets from the Tropical Islands to the Amazon. Explore Eden's small holding of Cocoa trees and discover a deliciously dark tale of conquest, love and trade, then finally brew up a cup of the original hot chocolate Aztec style!
