Forest bathing - Nova Levante 

with hiking & forest bathing guide and nature coach Helga Tschager
(May, June, October) 

"There is a power from eternity, and it is green" Hildegard von Bingen 1098 - 1197 
Shinrin-yoku is Japanese and means "forest (air) bath" and "medicine of the forest". The Chinese doctor/researcher in Japan Dr. Qing Li, "inventor" of the "forest bathing" as a nature-related practice, speaks of the "Effect of forest environment on human immune function"! Japanese universities offer a medical specialization in "forest medicine".
"Forest bathing is intended to deliberately draw attention away from thinking", says Martin Kiem, forest bathing and forest therapy guide.
The benevolent and relaxing atmosphere of the woods gives us the opportunity to rediscover the "fascination" in nature to recharge our "batteries", freeing us of negative thoughts. We re-learn to relax, see, feel, touch, smell and taste.
Crossing the forest carefully, we will do exercises against mental rumination, we recharge our lungs with oxygen, we will find secular trees, which for 600 - 700 years, have grown in magical places, full of positive energy such as "the snake tree". We breathe in the oxygenated air and walk without stress and many thoughts, but full of "joy of life".
Start: 9.00 am in front of the supermarket Despar “Tschager” | Duration: 6-7 hours, walking time approx. 4.30 hours (depending on the hiking destination) | Height difference (depending on the tour): from 100 m to approx. 480 m |
Total length: approx. 10 km | Difficulty: from easy to medium (depending on the hike) | Transport: by public bus or cable car Welschnofen/ Nova Levante (information at registration Tourist office) | Equipment: Provisions or refreshment (information at registration Tourist office). Sufficient water/drinks, mountain- trekking shoes, clothes, headgear, rainwear/umbrella in the backpack
