Forest baths are a trend from Japan with the aim of healing by connecting with nature and especially with the forest.
It is also a unique way to get to know Chilean nature more intensively.
In Chile, this experience is also called “nature bathing” and is often combined with “grounding”, connecting with the earth barefoot. This harmonious relationship with nature is also typical of the indigenous peoples of Chile and is reflected in their worldview of Pachamama (Mother Earth) and Ñuke Mapu.
Places to take a forest bath in Chile
There are 105 protected wild areas in Chile. In these places, visitors can enjoy forest bathing and recharge their energy, while at the same time cultivating respect for the surrounding nature and the partially ancient trees.
Forest bathing is above all about the conscious perception of nature with all senses and the understanding of being one with it.
