Forest Bathing Wicklow
Forest Bathing Wicklow was founded by Cathelijne de Wit (you can call her Cat) after she trained as a forest bathing guide with Nádúr, Centre for Integrative Forest Therapy in the summer of 2021.
Cat also joined forces with Ed Ledesma, one of her fellow trainees, and founded Avonmore Forest Bathing at Tipi Adventures.
Avonmore Forest Bathing
Avonmore Forest Bathing is a collaboration between Tipi Adventures Ireland and tour guide company Witty Walks.
Ed Ledesma (owner of Tipi Adventures Ireland) and Cathelijne de Wit (owner of Witty Walks) met met during their training programme to become certified forest bathing guides. They decided to join forces and work together. With Ed's magical forest location and Cathelijne's experience as a tour guide they form a forest bathing dream team.
We offer guides forest bathing experiences to guests of the Tipi Adventures Wild Campsite. Those can be booked through the Tipi Adventures website or on site. In the future we plan to offer multiple day forest bathing retreats at Tipi Adventures. Subscribe to our newsletter to be kept up to date about those events.
Originally from the Netherlands, Cathelijne moved to Ireland because she fell in love with the natural landscape of the emerald isle. She has been working as a certified national tour guide for more than seven years. Her work is all about sharing her love for Ireland with other people.
Cathelijne lives in county Wicklow, the garden of Ireland, and spends a lot of time in its beautiful natural surroundings. In 2021 she trained as a forest bathing guide because again, she wanted to share the benefits she experienced in nature with others. She loves telling stories but during forest bathing walks, Cathelijne lets the forest do most of the talking.
