What do I need to bring?
We will be spending about 3 hours together in the outdoors and we recommend bringing a jacket and sweater as the weather can change quickly, even in summer. We highly recommend wearing sturdy walking or hiking shoes (no sandals or flip flops) and bringing your own water bottle. If you need to refill, we’re happy to supply clean water to keep you hydrated!
If you think you might need walking poles, we are happy to supply these, just let us know in advance.We are working on options to make this experience available to guest with mobility challenges, please contact us to discuss this further.
We look forward to welcoming you to Painted Warriors and ask that you arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your Bimose experience.
We are taking precautions to keep our guests safe so they can enjoy our beautiful outdoors and activities with the confidence we’re putting their health and wellness first. At this time, we ask all visitors booking accommodations with us to bring their own sleeping bag and pillow. We recommend packing a good quality winter sleeping during the colder months (we generally recommended a bag for up to minus 20 to ensure you’re cozy all night long).
