This is a great entry level trip for newcomers or Betties looking build confidence outdoors. Expect 2-5 hours of activity a day on mostly flat or slightly hilly terrain with the occassional steep and/or uneven trail. You'll travel approximately 4-6 miles per day and experience moderate elevation/altitude changes.

Challenging adventures for Betties who are fit adventurers and possess a basic skill set for the outdoors. Expect 5-8 hours of activity per day over a variety of exposed terrain and steep uneven trails. Distances up to 12 miles per day and altitudes up to 14,000 ft.
Designed for the most experienced Betties who are do adventures on a regular basis. You'll be taken to remote locations over exposed, uneven and challenging terrain, requiring 10+ hours of activity per day and distances of 12+ miles. Altitudes could exceed 14,000 ft.
We spend a lot of time outside, but rarely do we ever slow down and focus on nature with intent.
Forest Bathing is an intentional and immersive experience with the natural world and is a newer form of nature therapy. Typically, the setting is a wooded or forested area, but can take place in any open areas, even public parks! A guide gently offers invitations to explore your surroundings. Touching flowers, closing your eyes, smelling the air, taking off your shoes and rooting your toes into the earth, these are all ways to explore your environment during a forest bath.
The science behind forest bathing has shown some actual health benefits, such as:
- boosted immune systems
- decrease in blood pressure and heart rate
- mood improvements
We are excited to offer our members a unique option for some true self-care. A chance to slow down and view yourself as you exist in nature.
The Forest Bathing experience will last approximately 3 hours. The experience will consist of several invitations from our guide, Sari. After accepting each invitation and participating in the activity, we will have the opportunity to share our highlights with the group. The final invitation will be to a tea ceremony prepared with love by our guide.
Check out a great explanation of Forest Bathing by our guide herself, Sari Telpner:

While it is our intention at Bold Betties to adhere to the event as described, there is a certain amount of flexibility built into the itinerary and on occasion it may be necessary, or desirable to make alterations. The itinerary is brief, as we never know exactly where our journey will take us. Due to the nature of Bold Betties events, adventuring and travel can be unpredictable. Our itinerary overview is a general guide regarding the event and any mention of specific destinations or wildlife is by no means a guarantee that they will be visited or encountered. These changes can be made with regards to safety, attendee capabilities, time constraints, weather and various other reasons. You are solely responsible for arriving to the meeting place on time. In the event of a delay, it is up to you to make alternative arrangements. Any additional costs incurred is your responsibility. Refunds will not be given due to missed connections, canceled flights, weather, or any other delays or unforeseen circumstances.
