What you'll do

Embark on a relaxed, mindfulness based nature walk through the wild enchantment of a west coast temperate rainforest.

Discover Forest Bathing & immerse yourself in the healing & revitalizing energies of nature - Seeing, Touching, Tasting, Smelling & Listening to the vibrant Presence & Ecosystem that brings the rainforest to Life. You will learn some very effective tools that will result in such things as improved mental clarity, feelings of gratitude & joy, a strengthened immune system, lowered blood pressure & stress levels, & increased energy & vitality.

Participate in a guided visualization exercise, imaging that you are a tree & feeling grounded to the earth beneath you.

Practice some Nature Mysticism & come to the realization that you are part of something much greater than yourself. Awaken your sense or awareness of being immersed in the Oneness of Nature.

Tune into the life force of a mystical rainforest while listening to the uplifting sounds of a Tibetan Singing Bowl. Cap off your tour with an introduction to the Forest Elder, a 650 year old Douglas fir. Mystical Rainforest Tours are definitely a whole lot more than just a walk in the park.

Your guide, John is fluent in ASL (American Sign Language) so tours are accessible to the Deaf community.

Where you'll be

Francis King Regional Park is definitely one of Victoria's hidden gems. This park is not as well know as other parks in the region, even to locals. It has one of the most mature rainforests that greater Victoria has to offer, including one giant that is about 650 years old. The park is somewhat secluded & offers a great escape from most urban noises. Peace & tranquility abound!

John's rainforest tour was such a special experience. I've been on many hikes, but this park was especially magical and I really appreciated John's spiritual approach to entering the forest.

Magical. So so so magical. I am so full of gratitude for John as he is so very special. He goes beyond what you could ever expect a person to share with a complete stranger. Book this if it’s the only one you choose.
