The World's Leading Community
of Certified Forest Therapy Guides

Welcome to the Association of Nature & Forest Therapy Member Guide Map & Directory where you can find a Certified Forest Therapy guide to schedule a private walk, organize an employee retreat, integrate forest therapy into your business's programming, collaborate on events, or just to learn more about forest therapy.  

We have trained more guides in more countries on more continents than any other forest therapy organization.

Our certified guides have completed a week long intensive training followed by a six-month practicum and certification program supported by professional trainers and mentors. Guides learn the ANFT framework and the theory, philosophy, and skills to guide people on forest therapy walks. Just as importantly, they learn a core set of principles and values which you can read about here.
