What We Do
Born in 2003 out of a passion for paddlesports, Sam & Rich created Liquid Logistics with the mission of making it easy for people to enjoy time on the water. Moving on and growing up over the years, New Forest Activities is now the largest provider of outdoor activities within The National Park. Our mission is simple: To provide fun and enlightening experiences, from our base in The New Forest.
We pursue this mission with the following core values:
- Provide honest information and appropriate environments.
- Have enthusiasm and interest in customers and their experiences.
- Create valuable and long lasting relationships with customers, providers & associates.
We strive to continually improve our range of activities and services, based on the feedback we receive.
Meet The Team
In 2003, our university dream started to become reality and we’ve been living it ever since. I love the expression of nature and The New Forest demonstrates this beautifully. Wild spaces, wild animals and ancient trees, you can really sense our connection to the past and witness how we’re shaping our future. It’s great to be part of something bigger than yourself!
Starting and running New Forest Activities has been a great adventure. It’s a pleasure to meet new people who share a love of the great outdoors. I became hooked on paddling at university and still find it an exciting and challenging sport. I am very proud of what we have built over our first 15 years and know there will be a lot more excitement over the next 15.

Where Are We?
New Forest Activities has an arrangement with The Beaulieu Estate, where we host most of our activities within this private and historic part of The New Forest. Exclusive commercial rights to the Tidal Beaulieu River, a hidden Woodland Activities Centre and more seasonal locations give a wonderful backdrop to what we do. We also have arrangements with other landowners outside of the Beaulieu area, providing even more options.
The New Forest National Park is located between Southampton to the East and Bournemouth to the West. Less than a 30-minute drive from these city centres, a great variety of open heathland, dense woodland and spectacular coastline is waiting for you to explore.
Our activities take place at a variety of venues. You’ll receive specific instructions in your booking pack, of where your meeting point is, to be sure you arrive at the correct place. The map shows our booking office on Beaulieu High Street, which is open 7 days a week 9-5. Only our cycle hire activity is located here, so please contact us before setting off if you’re coming for a pre-booked activity.
