These treks take part in the heart of exam season, perfect the evening after or before an exam when nerves may need to be calmed or minds relaxed.
Research shows that physical activity can boost self-esteem, mood, improve sleep quality and energy, as well as reducing the risk of stress all of which can be effected during the exam season.
The ability to touch/stroke and spend time with animals has also be shown to have positive effects on the mind and body. The body can also release endorphins that produce a calming effect. This can help alleviate pain, reduce stress, and improve your overall psychological state.
What we will do:
In small groups (no more than 5 trekkers along with an accompanying adult (for U16) we will take a gentle walk around part of the farm before heading back to base to feed and cuddle the alpacas some more!
