Treat yourself to a gourmet forest bathing walk and experience the winter forest like you never have before! Let certified Forest Therapy Guide Aimée Lavoie, and Wilderness Guide Mike Turgeon welcome you to a private nature trail hidden near the heart of Timmins. Here you will be led on a gentle walk through the snowy boreal forest where you will be invited to deepen into your senses and immerse yourself in the present moment. Waiting for you at the end of the walk will be a cozy fire and a selection of appetizers to fill your belly and warm the soul. Enjoy a hot beverage and gourmet snack prepared fireside by an outdoor cooking enthusiast, and take in the flavours of the forest with your awakened senses. Afterwards, return at your own pace along the same trail and emerge feeling refreshed and reconnected. Come alone or with others; you’re always among friends in the forest!

What We’ll Do
This experience will take place on a private nature trail just outside of downtown Timmins. The landscape is representative of typical forests of the area.
What to Bring
This experience is weather dependent and will be postponed or cancelled in case of extreme cold or weather conditions. Please dress VERY warmly as this low-impact activity does not generate a lot of body heat (base layer/longjohns, mid layer,and outer layer/shell such as ski pants and parka, as well as warm boots, hats, and mitts) . It is always easier to remove layers than to have to add them. Please also bring water to drink along the walk.
We want you to be as comfortable as possible during your nature connection walk so we will be offering a selection of amenities such as handwarmers, tissues, and seating options. The menu will consist of 2-3 desserts prepared over the fire as well as a small assortment of other finger foods. Please alert us of any food allergies at time of booking.
No extreme sensory stimuli (e.g. bright lights, loud noises)
The trail is not groomed therefore unfortunately this experience is not accessible to those with mobility issues.
