Sensory Snowshoeing

Sensory Snowshoeing combines guided sensory activities that help you get up close to nature, with free time to explore nature around you in a relaxing and welcoming atmosphere.

Sensory Snowshoeing immerses you in the sights, sounds, scents, textures and tastes of our winter wonderland, here in the Adirondacks. It brings you up close with the magic of winter in nature. There’s a sense of quietness, a hush on a snowy day that is unique and peaceful.

Your snowshoes are included. No snowshoe experience necessary. We have several trails we use, and each one includes a couple of gentle slopes to help you stay warm. After booking, you will receive a confirmation letter that includes what to wear and bring for your comfort throughout the experience.

SENSORY SNOWSHOEING

Sensory Snowshoeing is a winter version of the wellness practice Forest Bathing. Your garden, a favorite tree or a nearby park are all inviting places to take a sensory nature break in the midst of your day. We can show you how. It’s simple. The practice is there for you throughout the seasons. There is no better place to learn than away from home, in the winter wonderland of the Adirondack Park.

“Our group of five really enjoyed the experience, including two teenagers. I was amazed and a little surprised at how much my 17 year old son enjoyed it and how insightful he was. I am so grateful to have shared this experience with him and our friends.”

Testimonials

“It’s a rare thing to stop and focus on the beauty of the forest in winter, to be completely aware of the sights, sounds and textures of winter. Very joyful!”

“All of us found our time reconnecting to nature and each other to be the highlight of our trip. The invitations to open our senses to the wonder of the natural world helped us to just stop, and be.”
