Around the 21st June, we experience the longest days of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.
Since prehistory, the summer solstice has been seen as a significant time of year in many cultures, and has been marked by festivals and rituals. Traditionally, in many regions (especially Europe), the summer solstice is seen as the middle of summer and referred to as “midsummer”.
The summer solstice/Midsummer gets celebrated with rituals, and being outside at that time of the year, with the longest days, is just the best.
Join a WanderWomen experience around the Summer Solstice to celebrate life, light, nature and community.
