Open to everyone
Are you ready for a full immersion in the Vosges forest? This 3-day sylvotherapy and hiking program allows us to playfully discover the Vosges forest and enjoy forest bathing in protected sites, chosen by their rich biodiversity.
Hiking offers us an original well-being ritual that reconnects us to nature. During this 3-day hiking program in the forest we will go off the beaten paths, towards the heart of preserved natural sites.
Sylvotherapy is a preventive or curative method that brings inner calm and helps us to manage different levels of stress. During this 3-day forest bath, completely immersed in the heart of forests preserved from the Massif des Vosges, we will take the time to live to the rhythm of nature, in order to reconnect with ourselves.
I will take you to discover the quiet forest atmosphere, the fauna and flora, the smell of its plants and the taste of sources that arise there. During this trip we will have the opportunity to enjoy clean, good quality water, combined with mixtures of plants, natural juices and syrups selected by me.
I will also introduce you to forest bathing, through embrace and meditation sessions with the trees. The energy and vibration frequencies of the trees affect various biological behaviours of our body. In fact, it’s a way to release negative energies.
In the evening, enjoy a friendly atmosphere in the farmhouse inn with a traditional Vosges dinner before sleeping in an authentic dormitory.
We will have lunch, consisting of local products, in a wooden chalet in the heart of the Vosges forest.
Are you looking for innovative “nature” activities, wellness, relaxation and serenity? Then this stay in the Vosges will for sure be unforgettable!

Mon enterrement de vie de jeune fille a été fantastique... J'ai adoré... Je n'aurais pas pu rêver mieux... Même dans mes rêves, je n'osais pas espérer cela. Eric a été trop sympa. Il nous a fait découvrir les Vosges, toutes les petites et les grandes choses de la nature, il a cuisiné à merveille à base de produits locaux, j'ai eu droit à un massage que je n'oublierai jamais (couchée dans la forêt, avec un rayon de soleil pour me réchauffer et une vue magnifique, toutes les copines assises autour)... Je crois qu'il a aussi du bien rigoler... En tout cas, on est toutes rentrées super enthousiastes, et je pense que c'était peut-être le premier week-end d'une longue série. On est déjà partantes pour refaire ce genre d'expérience dans un an.
