- Abstract in English : This paper reports an examination on qualitative aspects of the wilderness experience as a source of spiritual inspiration of two groups of women. This study does indicate that recreational experiences in a wilderness setting have the distinct potential to positively enrich the lives of who take to the wild. The beneficial aspects of wilderness recreation include not only the potential for physical and emotional growth, but moreover the opportunity to grow spiritually.
