Adirondack River Walking & Forest Bathing

  • Saranac Lake

Picture it now: You are in the forest on a crisp winter day. The snow is falling lightly and all you can hear are the soft sounds of your snowshoes and the chirping of the chickadees as you meander through the woods, invited by your guide to experience nature through your senses.

Strap on a pair of snowshoes and let us take you into the forest on a unique sensory journey to rediscover the magic of winter. We will cover less than a mile on gentle terrain to allow you to take in all the sights, sounds, smells and textures of an Adirondack forest in winter. Your guide will help you slow down through a series of brief ever-changing sensory activities so you can find a deeper relationship with nature. And you will find that you are also more present to yourself and to each moment, effortlessly.

More than two decades of research studies describe a wide range of health benefits from the practice of Forest Bathing including lowered blood pressure, reduced stress, a stronger immune system, reduced anxiety and greater attention and concentration. Winter Forest Bathing is a seasonal adaptation of Forest Bathing.

"The experience gave me the space to let go, let go of everything
except my senses and my awareness of my surroundings,
a place I visit often, yet I am never fully there!"
