Terms and Conditions

COVID-19 Protocol

All events are outdoor activities. Hence the contraction and transmission of the virus are at a minimal level. We are monitoring the situation and complying with the governmental guidelines. We want to create a safe environment for all the guests, so we ask participants not to attend the event if feeling unwell. Our guides are fully vaccinated but will not be wearing a mask during the walk. We do not require mask-wearing while in a group but recommend distancing. 

GDPR

Weather

Our events will go ahead of any weather circumstances and conditions, which means we may encounter some wet conditions. The walk might be cancelled only if there is a MET Eireann weather warning. If the walk/hike is cancelled due to the bad weather, we will notify you as soon as possible and reschedule the event. If no suitable dates are convenient for you, we will refund the fee.

How to prepare?

Appropriate clothing is necessary.

Please wear shoes that fully cover your feet and ankles. A warm and waterproof jacket is necessary for the Forest Bathing Experience as we will walk slower than usual. There will be moments of standing and sitting, regardless of the weather conditions. You may take water or snacks if you wish and any medication or additional walking equipment if you need it. The guide will carry a waterproof mat for you to sit on.

What to expect?

All tours are conducted in nature. Please, be aware of where you place your feet, as there might be possible risks, like leaves, branches or tree roots. The ground may be uneven, slippery, wet or muddy. Hanging branches and fallen trees might cause a potential risk, so be aware of anything around and above you. Please, use sunscreen (when needed) and insect repellent when entering the forested area.

Medical conditions

If you have any medical conditions, are on prescribed medication, or have any concerns, please, see your GP and inform them about attending one of our tours or events. If you currently experience or have a history of serious health issues (including mental health issues, operations, medical procedures, seizures, implants, special needs, etc.), please inform us to look after you properly. There will be a natural tea gathering during most of our tours and events. If you have any allergies, please let me know in advance. Unfortunately, for safety reasons, we cannot accommodate people with walking disabilities at this moment.

Children

Most of our tours and events are suitable for children, and children need to be supervised by a parent.     

The Forest Bathing experience is suitable for juveniles above 13 years of age. Family Forest Discovery Sessions are suitable for families with children above six years of age.

Our Forest-related sessions are meditative and quiet, so please remember that no excessive noise will be permitted.

Pets

Pets on a leash are only permitted during the Family Forest Discovery Sessions. Please keep in mind that you are obliged to rules while entering Nature Reserve.

Refund Policy

Tickets are booked and paid for in advance, online. Please, note that all ticket sales are final. Unfortunately, due to small group numbers and the character of the events, we do not allow cancellations. If you cannot attend the event that you’ve booked, you can reschedule your experience or transfer your ticket to somebody else. No refunds will be issued in case of non-attendance. 

If we have to cancel the event for any reason, you will be offered an alternative date or, if a suitable date cannot be arranged, a full refund.
