Forest Therapy is a gentle walk in a natural environment where a sense of embodiment of self and Forest merge. Our roots were grown here, so by returning to this space, we can allow our bodies and minds quiet and calm.

Gain physical and mental benefits through the inhalation of phytoncides, essential oils given off by many plants and trees. These oils aid in immune function and cardiovascular health as well as a reduction of stress and depression by stabilizing mood and cognition.

Follow the guide through a series of invitations and share circles to promote safe containers of witness and support. End the walk with a tea ceremony for any introspection that may surface. Great for individual practice as well as group participation in wellness and bonding.

Absolutely calm and peaceful and we enjoyed kayaking in the beaver river. Free spirit tours makes it so enjoyable. They will shuttle you and kayak upstream and then you just kayak back to your car. The staff were very helpful and friendly too. Equipment were in great condition. Changes were also reasonable too. Recommend them with Five stars.
Will and Joel provided timely information, excellent customer service and willingness to make this a great day out on the river!

My husband, brother and I did the Nottawasaga River kayak tour last week and loved it! It was a beautiful paddle filled with fish, turtles, blue herons, cormorants, and other aquatic birds. Jenny and Tim were also incredibly kind. Their attentiveness, professionalism and advice made the whole experience smooth, well-organized and highly enjoyable. We will be making Free Sprit Tours a regular part of our summer trip up to the Blue Mountains and Wasaga Beach. Free Spirit Tours is the perfect option for anyone looking for a memorable outdoor adventure!
