WAYS TO LESSEN STRESS WHEN YOU GET THERE
Stress and anxiety plague modern life but taking a vacation with a focus on nature is a way to truly disconnect and recharge. According to a 2016 study presented at the 14th Asia Pacific Council on Hotel, Restaurant and Institutional Education, nature-based tourism is positive for well-being. CSL has rounded up some of the best ways to enjoy nature while travelling.
Walk: There are several coastal self-guided walking routes around the world from the Camino dos Faros in Spain to the South West Coast Path in Britain, to Canada’s own famed Great Trail.
Safari: It’s not just about seeing the big 5 in places like Botswana or Kenya anymore, safaris have evolved to include spotting rare birds like the quetzal in Costa Rica and volunteering to save the tigers in India.
Beach: he sounds of nature are incredibly soothing. Just because you’ve booked an all-inclusive does not mean you can’t benefit from the restorative powers of listening to the ocean, hiking or snorkelling.
