Are there forests in Hong Kong?
The short answer is - YES! There is no shortage of space in Hong Kong covered with trees and undergrowth. They may not look like the kind of forest we often see in movies, books or magazines with sky-high giant ancient trees, but they are forests nonetheless.
What we want to stress however is that nature connection is a great experience not only in forests, but also in many country parks, urban green spaces and gardens. With practice, over time, you will find yourself able to connect with nature indoors, or indeed, anywhere.
Can I join if I have difficulty walking?
Yes. Just let us know in advance and we will make adjustments to cater for your needs. If we find that the particular session you have signed up for may not suit you, we will suggest an alternative session for you.
Can I join if I use a wheelchair?
We will design sessions that are suitable for wheelchair users, and will clearly indicate that they are so in our session descriptions. At the moment, we are unable to host wheelchair users, but please do register your interest with us so that we can contact you as soon as we have a session suitable for you!
Our public sessions are generally designed for participants from age 14 onwards. If you have children and would love to bring them on to one of our sessions, let us know and we can plan something around your needs and interests!
Are children welcome?
Bring an umbrella and put on your raincoat! ;-)
We have an adverse weather policy that we will share with you when we confirm your spot at our sessions. In many cases, the weather is an additional element of fun in our session, as we play with what the weather offers! But we will always have your safety in mind.
What happens if it rains?
We run English sessions and Cantonese sessions, as you will be able to see from our session descriptions. If you speak a language different from the one indicated on the description, and are eager to join the session nonetheless, do contact us and we will see what we can do!
Are your walks conducted in English or Chinese?
Things that will make you feel comfortable outdoors. These typically include drinking water, sunscreen, hat, sunglasses, umbrella and mosquito repellent. It is important that you bring your phone in case you need to contact us on the day. In each session description we remind you of the things to bring for the particular location, so please do check that when you pack your bags.
What should I bring?
Anything that makes you comfortable outdoors! That typically means comfortable tops and pants, good walking or hiking shoes, hat and sunglasses. Depending on the weather, you may want to wear long tops and pants to avoid sunburn or mosquito bites, or bring a change of clothes in the summer. It never hurts to check the weather before you leave home.
