Drink in the Senses on a Forest Walk
The idea behind “forest bathing” is pretty simple—it basically means to wander around in a quiet patch of forest and slow down—inhale the pine aroma, maybe even lie down. It’s a simple activity, and one that the guides at Between a Lake and a High Place, a Kaslo, B.C.–based experiential tourism company, have taken to another level. On one of their signature guided acoustic forest walks, you’ll head out at dusk to savor the twilight and tune in to the songs of Swainson’s thrushes and Pacific wrens, to the wind in the trees, to the rush of the Kaslo River. Stress doesn’t stand a chance, especially when your guides break out the locally sourced organic snacks, a harpist serenades the scene, and you lie back on a blanket as the twinkling lights appear in the trees.
