Summer Holiday Family Fun

Treat the family to an adventure to remember this Summer.

Family Adventure Day

£25 per person | 18+ months

Come and see what The New Forest has to offer by both land and water on a Family Adventure Day with New Forest Activities. You’ll enjoy a fully guided 90-minute canoeing tour of the Beaulieu River as well as a full day’s bike hire.

Your canoeing tour will be lead by one of our experienced instructors and will take place in stable and safe ‘Canadian style’ canoes seating up to three people. After hitting the water you’ll then hit the road on your bikes! With children’s bikes, trailers, tag-a-longs and child seats, even the little ones can get involved in the fun. Plus we’ll provide you with some of the best local cycle routes in the area.

Woodland Adventure Day

£60 Adult | £25 Child | 6+ years

A fantastic day of activities embracing everything the forest has to offer, including bushcraft, den building and archery followed by an afternoon of low and high rope challenges.

School Holiday Adventure Day

£35 per child | 8-12 years

Or why not drop the kids off for a full day of forest fun? They’ll make new friends and learn new skills including bushcraft and archery. Then it’s up into to the trees for an afternoon of low and high rope activities on our leafy treetop playground.

“If you are undecided about using New Forest Activities then let me assure you, it is time and money well spent.”

Mum and Dad deserve a treat too right? Paddle along the river in our stable canoes before enjoying a riverside refreshment at the Master Builder’s pub at Buckler’s Hard. A great way to spend a warm Summer’s evening.


I took part in the Family Canoeing with a group of 10 ranging from 6 to 60 years. The trip was well organised and the two members of staff leading us were fantastic. They both explained the equipment and techniques extremely well and gave fun and interesting information about the river and surrounding area during the trip. The trip lasted about 1.5 hours and I would thoroughly recommend it as a family outing for all ages.


Great Family Archery experience. We went as a family of 2 adults; a 16 year old and a 9 year old. The instructor was good fun, explained everything and made sure everyone was safe and had a good time.


I booked the 90-minute canoeing session for me and my family and I was slightly apprehensive to say the least! The instructors however were brilliant – friendly but professional. We had a great paddle and played some games which helped with our confidence in the canoe. I would thoroughly recommend this experience and we all loved every minute.
