Explore Big Cypress

Behind Clyde Butchers Gallery

A Big Cypress Swamp walk is more than a walk in the park—it’s an adventure, a getaway and a thrill! Experience the primordial beauty of Clyde Butcher’s world when you experience a guided eco-swamp tour or private photo safari swamp tour through Big Cypress National Preserve behind his gallery. Beneath the ancient cypress trees, stop and listen to the deep stillness of an unspoiled paradise that seems far from everyday life. In this light-filled realm of wonder and awe, you are completely surrounded by nature in her purest state.

YOUR OWN PRIVATE NATURE RETREAT

Fall asleep to the soothing lullaby of tree frogs and cicadas, and wake to the call of a snowy egret or great white heron. Reserve your stay at one of Clyde Butcher’s two exclusive nature retreats, which blend pristine natural surroundings with modern amenities. Nestled deep in the Florida Everglades, these private accommodations sit on 13 lush subtropical acres of Big Cypress Swamp, surrounded by a million acres of wilderness. Choose from the cozy one-bedroom Swamp Bungalow, or the more spacious two-bedroom Swamp Cottage. Overnight guests will receive a 20% discount on our swamp walk.

To know the swamp you have to get into the swamp…
