Forest Bathing in snow-covered Whistler forests
Forest Therapy, or Forest Bathing, started in Japan as a preventative health care program to support deep relaxation, and nervous system restoration. It is a unique, immersive experience that cultivates a sense of connection, rejuvenation and serenity. Unlike a typical walk, Forest Therapy is a slow, guided exploration of the forest, designed to open the senses and calm the mind. You will be guided through sensory awareness and mindfulness prompts to promote total immersion in the soothing environment of the forest. Here, the stress and pressures of daily life give way to an experience of spaciousness and timelessness. Research has shown that Forest Therapy can: • Boost your immunity for up to three weeks • Reduce inflammation, fatigue, and insomnia • Lower blood pressure • Relieve anxiety, depression and stress • Increase creativity, alertness and focus This tour is suitable for all fitness levels as we will be moving slowly. Children under 10 years old and pets are not permitted on this particular tour. Tours will proceed rain or shine but may be cancelled in unsafe weather.

I provide you with upto 2 traps each to use and I supervise as you set the traps. We soak the traps for a minimum of 15 minutes at which point you retrieve them under my supervision and we examine the catch. When you are finished (stay as late as 2pm!) for the day the traps will be prepared for storage and collected by myself. Any legal crab you catch are yours to keep!!
