Trip Overview

Escape the everyday to reveal your true potential.

Discover the Japanese concept of forest bathing. You don't literally take a bath! You bathe in the environment, using all your senses to experience nature up close.

Escape the "technostress" of modern living that is affecting our immune systems and thought processes, causing physical and mental imbalance. Join us to bring yourself back to nature and reset your well being. 

This exclusive 5-day, 4-night nature retreat is a guided exploration through ancient beech forest, water ways and beaches. Feel yourself come alive with fresh air, bird song and fine food to stimulate your senses.
