Tenneville-Bad….in full forest !

The city of Tenneville is known for its crossing through the National 4 which, by the way, makes it so easily accessible, but it is much more than just this. Walking along the country roads you will soon notice that this is a region that combines conviviality, enjoyment of simple things and exotic expanses of nature.Even if you take the time to walk on two ancestors of the famous N4, the Chaussée Marie-Thérèse or the old Roman road Metz-Tongres, the countryside appears as far as the eye can see… and the forest is never far away! More than half of this area of the Forest of Saint-Hubert is covered with trees. Between the impressive forest of Freyr, the nature reserves or the viewpoints where you can observe fauna and flora, this is undoubtedly a region where time is taken to live the present moment.

Shinrin Yoku destination in the Ardens

The practice of forest bathing (also known as “Shinrin Yoku“) is adopting a different way of being in the forest, a different way of walking… Take advantage of the benefits of the trees and reconnect with nature, but also (and especially?) with yourself. The guided forest baths are organised all year round by the Syndicat d’Initiative de Tenneville. Accompanied by sylvotherapists, these are always new

experiences. 

Rational approach or Zen attitude, there are several formulas. And for those who prefer to discover this practice with positive effects for body and mind on their own, there will soon be a path dedicated to it.

The Forest de la Fontaine
