Adventure tourism – 5 Reasons it’s good for you!

When you decide to go out for adventure tourism, be ready to immerse in remote cultures and view wildlife up close. Its physically and emotionally hard work to trek to remote areas but it’s worth the effort. Take a look at these 5 reasons why adventure travel is good for you.

1- Beat the stress with outdoor adventure

Spending time outdoors is great for your mind and body. It’s an excellent way to reduce stress as you'd notice how everyone is always smiling when returning from an outdoor adventure. The reason is obvious – they have come back from their adventure with reduced stress level.

 Imagine viewing some stunning scenery. Even the idea of being out there takes away some stress. Once you are physically out there, all the stress is going to melt down.

It’s not just the word of a few adventure tourists but it’s backed by scientific research. Washington Post did a wonderful post explaining how science supports this claim.

So, don't hold back. Get out more and spend time under the sun away from city life and closer to nature. It will wash away the stress and allow your brain to release hormones that make you happy.

2- Enjoy the benefits of exercise

Outdoor adventure makes you work hard. Think of trekking or cruising through your favorite landscape. It’s going to make your muscles work hard. Since your brain is in a happier state and has lesser stress to handle, it makes exercise easy. Your muscles don’t complain either.

If you don’t believe that, science has proved it. A recent study suggests that focusing on green color while working out makes your muscles less stressful.

3- Meet the real challenges

When you opt to go on an outdoor adventure, you face real challenges. It’s unlike anything else. You have to learn to control your body and mind. The reward is a sense of accomplishment.

With adventure tourism, you can easily change your life. Set yourself small goals and go after them. Achieving these goals will give you a sense of achievement and accomplishment. Once it has become a habit to win, you will learn to trust yourself. Your personality will boom with confidence and you will become a happier person.

4- Become smarter with outdoor adventure

When you spend time in the outdoors, you become smarter. Your brain is more focused and active during the time you spend closer to nature. It's able to double-up the activity and therefore you become smarter over time.

Hiking, kayaking, and biking are some great outdoor activities to start spending time closer to nature.

5- Make new friends and learn new skills

One of the greatest benefits of adventure tourism is that it gives you a chance to meet new people. You meet other tourists but you also meet with indigenous people living in remote areas. These people have upheld their traditions and often have a unique perspective on life.

You make new memories and friends when you immerse in the local cultures around the world, dine in new restaurants and taste local foods from those cultures. Not only that, you learn new skills whenever you go on a new adventure. Traveling creates new opportunities and gives you a chance to get out of your comfort zone.

Adventure tourism is great for your mental and physical health. It makes you happy and keeps your muscles toned. You live a more satisfying life with plenty of achievements and memories to share with your friends from all over the world.
