The diversity of activities carried out in leisure time brings about studies on recreation in different branches of science. Although these studies are mainly conducted in departments of sports sciences and tourism faculties in our country, the unique characteristics of the field encourage interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research. Leisure activities play an important role in the healthy lifestyles of individuals and societies. Especially after the effects caused by the Covid-19 virus, the importance of leisure activities conducted outdoor has been re-emphasized. In this context, Anatolia: Journal of Tourism Research will publish a special issue at the end of 2024 focusing on research related to the impact of outdoor recreation on individuals' well-being and health. Based on the interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary nature of our field, we invite all colleagues working on recreation in different fields to publish on outdoor recreation and healthy living (quality of life, well-being). We look forward to receiving well-framed theoretical-conceptual and methodologically sound studies, particularly in the following topics and areas within the scope of leisure activities conducted outdoors:
