New Forest Activities offer a variety of safe and enjoyable activities for families, couples, individuals and groups of all ages and abilities led by expert outdoor instructors. 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.

For the more adventurous you can take to the trees on our 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. No projectiles, no lasers, 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 us and hit the road, with a whole range of maps and guides to get you on your way! Or combine with a paddle on the river on one of our Family Adventure Days!

Keep an eye out for special seasonal activities such as Paddles to the Pub, Spooky Halloween Tours and Winter and Christmas Paddles!
