We will also have time to explore the forest and experience shinrin-yoku.
According to the ancient Japanese art of forest bathing, "the sounds of the forest, the scent of the trees, the sunlight playing through the leaves, the fresh and clean air — give us a sense of comfort. They ease our stress and worry, help us to relax and to think more clearly".
"Being in nature can restore our mood, give us back our energy and vitality, refresh and rejuvenate us".
