Inspired by the Japanese art of Shinrin-yoku, forest bathing is a slow, sensory woodland walk alongside an expert guide who will help you disconnect from the stresses of everyday life.

Immerse yourself in the green world of our Pinetum and clear your head, relax more deeply, and improve your sleep.

Organised in partnership with the Forest Bathing Institute.
