Description: Over the past few decades, scientific research has confirmed the numerous and diverse benefits of spending time in natural environments for the human health and wellbeing. Yet, a number of visitors of Tofino do not seem to be aware of the degree of positive effects that can be derived from consciously enjoying the benefits of nature, and do not spend a lot of time pursuing activities that would improve their wellbeing. Therefore, we see the potential of wellbeing tourism as a mechanism, not to bring more tourists in the area, but to enhance the visitor experience of the current tourists.
