About us

Flow Learning: at 4 Elements we aim for children, and adults alike, to become so absorbed in the moment that the learning becomes flow state. They learn unconsciously and naturally at our wild and reflective setting.

An amazing way of teaching using nature as the medium

We follow proven Forest School methodologies: encouraging and inspiring individuals to develop through an innovative, educational approach to outdoor activity.

The 4 Elements Galicia idea has grown over time: our success means we stand happily and confidently by our methodology and we want to bring this experience to as many children and families as possible.
