Tree Climbing + Forest Bathing in Kentucky

Tree Climbing, Hiking
16 Explorer Chicks
1/2 Day


Do you find yourself comforted by the sounds of the forest, the scent of the trees? Does the sunlight playing through the leaves, and the freshness felt from the clean air put a smile on your face? Reasons like this are why nature has a way of unwinding and recharging our souls. Comforting us by melting our stress and worry away. In fact, practicing the Japanese art of shinrin-yoku, or forest bathing is good for both your physical and mental well-being. Specifically proven to reduce stress hormone production, improve feelings of happiness and free up creativity, lower heart rate and blood pressure, boost the immune system, and accelerate recovery from illness.

Guided Hike + Tree Climbing

We will start out by exploring the backlands of Kentucky. Vanishing 1.5 miles deep into the woods to discover our enchanting climbing location. Coming into sight will be this massive Oak Tree🌳 beckoning for you to come to explore. Tree climbing is an up-and-coming adventure sport that uses specialized equipment to climb tall trees. This sport allows climbers to experience the trees and canopy from a unique and rare perspective.

Forest Bathing or “Shinrin-yoku”

After we’ve descended back down to earth out of our lofted playgrounds, we will meet around the fire as we start the Forest Bathing experience. Shinrin-yoku is not an exercise, or hiking, or jogging. It is simply being in nature, connecting with it through our senses of sight, hearing, taste, smell, and touch. Shinrin-yoku is like a bridge opening our five senses, therefore it bridges the gap between us and the natural world. Let’s take the time to listen to the birds singing and the breeze rustling the leaves. Look at the sunlight as it filters through the different greens of the trees. Breathe in the fragrance of the forest, taste the freshness of the air. Place your hands on the trunk of a tree. Dip your fingers or toes in a stream. Lie on the ground. Thus drinking in all the flavors of the forest.

Series of Forest Bathing Experiences

Bring your beverage of choice and meet your fellow Explorer Chicks around the fire.  Then you will receive a journal 📓 to use during your Guided Forest Bathing and meditation experience.
