Calling anyone who seeks adventure! New Forest Activities offer a wide range of outdoor activities for all age groups. Here are 6 reasons to take part in the awesome activities on offer, so let us help you pick which one is right for you and your children!


1. Canoe Tours
This is the perfect way to get your kids out in the water. Canoeing is a great way for kids to become confident around water from a young age. It’s fantastic for their development and allows them to become independent. And most of all it’s fun!
At New Forest Activities, the whole family will receive expert guidance and all of the kit for a relaxed tour of the stunning Beaulieu River.
2. Kayak Tours & Hire
Kayaking is more suitable for older children, teenagers and adults. It’s another great way to improve confidence in the water. Your children will learn new skills like responsibility and making good judgements.
Explore Beaulieu River Nature Reserve with this award winning kayaking activity – it’s wonderful all year round! Ideal for beginners aged 12 years and over.
3. Archery
Archery is a sport which will challenge your child mentally whilst having fun too. It allows them to use their brain and focus whilst taking part in a physical activity and parents can join in too!
In The New Forest National Park, you will get the tuition you need to improve your aim as you go for gold. Children over the age of 8 are welcome.


4. Battlefield Live
This is a unique high-tech digital combat experience. Similar to paintballing, you will be issued a gaming gun and taken to the battlefield for open play and battle scenarios.
Unlike paintball, these sophisticated guns use infra-red technology so there are no painful bruises! Great for children (and adults!) over the age of 8.
5. Bike Hire
The best way to explore The New Forest is by bike. It’s perfect for families wanting to experience the safety off road cycling routes.
Along the way, you will discover an abundance of native animals, including the famous New Forest ponies.
Hiring a bike is easy; New Forest Activities can provide all the maps and guides you need to make the most of your time on the trails.
6. Ropes and Bush Craft
Would you survive in the woods? This activity is great for all the family. Improve your survival skills with the expert help of your bush craft instructor.
Forage for your lunch, find your own shelter and warmth and swing from the trees. Ropes and bush craft is a great, rewarding activity for families with children of all ages.
