The Health Benefits of Adventure Travel

For individuals that love to get out and explore the wilderness, it probably doesn’t come as much of a surprise that adventure travel has so many health benefits – both mental and physical. The thought of heading out onto the waters of Reindeer Lake to catch some fish or out into the land surrounding Lawrence Bay Lodge to hunt for moose is an exciting one, and if you are looking for a great reason to come visit us this spring, we have plenty listed below.

Adventures Build Your Confidence

On every new adventure you embark on, you face challenges that present you with an opportunity to grow, and a trip to Reindeer Lake is no different than any other adventure travel experience. Not only will you grow as an angler or hunter, but you will grow as an individual, learning new things about yourself and your friend during your outdoor adventure.

The confidence you earn from heading outside your comfort zone and into the wilderness will also give you the tools you need to deal with the many uncertainties that life throws at you, a skill that all of us can benefit from.

Hiking Keeps You Mentally Sharp

With age, the hippocampus starts to shrink, causing the memory loss that many older individuals experience. Interestingly enough, research has shown that hiking and walking improves memory retention by triggering growth in the hippocampus. Adventure travel involves plenty of hiking, helping to keep both your body and mind healthy.

Dirt Boosts Your Immune System

Not only does adventure travel have mental benefits, it has physical ones as well. Especially if you spend the majority of your days cooped up in an office, a trip to Lawrence Bay Lodge is a great opportunity to strengthen your immune system while enjoying the sport you love. The clean, almost sterile environments we live in are thought to contribute to the recent rise in asthma and allergies, and getting outside all day is the perfect remedy to this problem.
