For most of us, butterflies epitomize the pastoral image of the countryside in summer, an image in which reality and fantasy mingle. Their gracefulness, their seeming carefree attitude and their glorious colours make these creatures the ambassadors of the animal world. Tropical butterflies are undoubtedly the largest, most colourful, and most peculiar of all, as is the incredible variety of natural environments the regions they originate from present.The Naturospace butterfly house provides insights into the unsuspected beauty of the life cycle these winged masterpieces are the final stage of.
Beyond their undeniable aesthetic quality, the observation of tropical butterflies draws us into an extremely interesting and largely unknown realm: that of the tropics. On that matter, the Naturoscope butterfly house will amaze you beyond your imagination. As soon as you enter the tropical forest area the damp equatorial climate takes you by surprise. Then the variety of plants, their shapes, their lushness, will carry you very far away beyond the seas.
And the discovery does not end there since around the corner of the footpath the reasons to be surprised and amazed are many.
So then, welcome to the Naturospace butterfly house in Honfleur, Normandy, for a great journey to the Equator…
The Naturospace butterfly house is a unique and unusual place, ideal for families (even with young children), school groups and all nature lovers who wish to understand or quite simply gaze in wonder. Facilities are 100% wheelchair and buggy accessible.
Over a 200 metre footpath [218 yards], inside this covered and air-conditioned 1000m² site [11 000 Sq Ft], discoveries and travel occur in direct contact with nature. The visitor walks under the gallery of a “carbet”, a traditional Guyanese wooden hut, and finds himself carried thousands of kilometers away. He then discovers all the charms of an exotic setting amongst this luxuriant nature, with the butterflies flying freely around him.
The visit helps you become imbued with the unique forest atmosphere and its functioning. Special facilities provide ideal observation conditions which would be impossible to find out in the wild.
