Landscape diversity in the Park is ideal for many environment-friendly outdoors activities.

The forest diversity of the Parc des Ballons des Vosges immerses visitors in nature, who feel like they are ‘bathing’ in the forest during sylvotherapy walks. Originating in Japan, this practice awakens your senses and helps you to reconnect with nature and yourself.

Mountain guides share their knowledge during forest therapy hikes in appropriate locations. These walks are a true forest ‘bath’ to recharge your batteries in the midst of nature whilst listening to your body in movement to reclaim your power and free your mind. It is about discovering nature in general, and our nature in particular, across preserved settings while respecting the peace and quiet environment of wildlife.

These walks take place over half a day or a whole weekend, with an overnight stay in a bivouac or mountain accommodation.
