The waitlist for for the Silent Walk is now full, sorry for any inconvenience. We hope to see you next year!

 People the world over celebrate Winter Solstice — the longest night of year before the the earth begins its slow journey of rebirth and reawakening. Come and experience the magical stillness of the forest lit only by fairy lights on a guided Solstice Walk.

We will host two guided walks. The 4 PM walk is geared for families and children and lasts about 45 minutes. Talking is permitted. The 6 PM walk is a silent walk and lasts about an hour. We ask that all participants refrain from talking during this stroll through the woods.

PLEASE NOTE:

  • All walks begin at the Gatehouse and take place rain or shine.
  • The only light will be from lanterns provided by Bloedel.
  • Please wear proper clothing and footwear suitable for walking our bark-covered trails.
  • These guided walks are intended to be a special way to experience the beauty of Bloedel. For safety reasons we ask that all guests stay with the group and exercise caution when walking.
  • Walks leave promptly at 4 PM and 6 PM. Guests will not be permitted to walk the grounds unaccompanied, and late arrivals will not be permitted to join a walk already in progress.
  • Come early, enjoy some hot tea, cider, and visit our Shop while you wait.
A big THANK YOU to our Solstice Walk Sponsor, Puget Sound Energy!
