Experiencing the 5 senses in Chamonix’s nature for the visually impaired, hard of hearing or autistic youngsters


DescriptionIn 2012, the photographer/author Teresa Kaufman hosted her first group of autistic adolescents on a Discovery & Photo Walk in the valley of Chamonix. She is now introducing a SENSORY WALK to accomodate disabled visitors - visually impaired, hard of hearing or autistic youngsters.

Nature’s language for each individual :
Sounds : birds, insects, bubbling brooks, wind and breeze
Smells : earthly aromas provoked by heat and humidity, subtle perfume of wild orchids
Cool temperatures : shaded forests or a mountain’s looming mass
Caresses : sensations on the skin from a light breeze
Proprioception : different terrains offering unique sensations underfoot ; cool moss beds, bouncy heather fields, wet and warm peat bogs and dry pebbly paths.
Taste : when possible, a burst of flavour from a wild rasberry…
Many and sometimes all of these sensory-charged locations can be felt and interpreted in different manners by disabled persons anxious to experience a part of Chamonix’s nature.


Participants are welcome to bring their favourite recording device to capture the experience : a camera, smart-phone, dictaphone, sketch-pad… Or simply their curiosity to discover and experience the tactile sensations.

The sensory walk takes place in a preserved natural environment, silent and stress-free. The walk is not strenuous and is easily accessible on foot after a 10-15 minute walk on an uphill slope to get to the starting point of the itinerary.

The sensory walk is a private outing on a ONE TO ONE formula and will be creating with respect to each individual participant. Individuals or small groups must be accompagnied by a responsable educator or member of the family.

The benefits of a sensory walk :
Teresa strongly believes in the benefit of an experience blending nature with photography or sound recordings as it provides a long-lasting souvenir of sensations for the participant.
Capturing and recording the experience naturally engages the person’s attention to his immediate environnement, sharpens his ability to see details, enhances his faculty of sound and stimulates his sense of smell and taste.
