New Forest Activities offer a variety of safe and enjoyable activities for families, couples, individuals and groups of all ages and abilities, led by passionate outdoor instructors. Founded in 2003, they're experts in providing both land and water based adventures in the heart of this wonderful National Park. For tours with a difference, take to the water with Canoeing and Kayaking on the Beaulieu River Nature Reserve. These guided tours are perfect for exploring this area of the New Forest and are guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Explore hidden creeks and spot the variety of wildlife that calls the river home including birds, moon jellyfish and even Beaulieu's resident seal.

For the more adventurous you can take to the trees on their high and low Ropes Course, great for the whole family to enjoy. The ever-popular Battlefield LIVE offers excitement and enjoyment using safe infra-red gaming guns. A bit like paint ball but with no projectiles, no extra costs for ammo and no pain! There’s also the chance to learn a new skill whilst enjoying the New Forest surroundings with Bushcraft or Archery.

If you’re an explorer then hire a bike from them and hit the road, with a whole range of maps and guides to get you on your way. They also have child seats, kids bikes, trailers and tag-a-longs so everyone can get involved in the fun. Why not combine your cycle hire with a paddle on the river on one of their Family Adventure Days?

Their Woodland Adventure Days combine a whole host of activities in the forest. Learn basic bushcraft survival skills like foraging, den building and fire lighting before moving onto the archery range for some fun shooting challenges. Then after lunch it's time to ascend into the trees on their leafy treetop playground. All you need to take is a packed lunch and your best sense of adventure!

Keep an eye out for special seasonal activities such as Paddles to the Pub, Ladies Only Paddles, Spooky Halloween Tours and Winter and Christmas Paddles to meet Santa.

Looking for a gift for a loved one? Let them unwrap adventure with a New Forest Activities gift voucher. Their gift vouchers make the perfect Birthday or Christmas present and give your loved ones the opportunity to try something different.
