Temperate rainforests like ours are one of the rarest habitats in the world. Like tropical rainforests, temperate rainforests are under threat from poor management, pollution, invasive non-native species, habitat fragmentation and climate change – so it’s important that we not only keep ours thriving but invite others to experience it for themselves.
One of the most beneficial ways to experience our rainforest is through forest bathing, otherwise known as shinrin-yoku – the practice of mindfully spending time in woodland. It’s taking in all the elements of nature with your senses and being present in the moment and quietening the mind. We have several forest bathing walks for you to experience, to suit all abilities. Guided meditations are also available for you to read throughout the woods – just ask our host team for more information.
