With both coast and countryside in this part of Dorset, you will find all sorts of activities to keep you entertained – from scenic strolls and pony treks to coasteering and rock climbing, there is something for all the family.
You can spend hours walking in our countryside and not pass another person – perfect for getting away from it all and being at one with nature. If you want to take in the salty sea air, then the South West Coast Path is your number one choice.
The diversity of our walking trails is celebrated during the annual Swanage and Purbeck Walking Festival. But if you can’t wait until Festival time, you can join a guided walk or let one of our experts plan a walking holiday for you at any time of year.
If you just can’t imagine going on a walk without your faithful friend, pack up a picnic and head out for a day of adventure on one of our walking routes. Plus there are plenty of beaches which allow dogs all year round too.
Our cycle routes cover a variety of distances and abilities, both on and off-road. You can bring your own bike or hire one from one of our cycle hire experts.
Why not try out the family-friendly Sika Cycle Trail at Wareham Forest or the Rempstone Ride ending at Studland Beach? For the more experienced cyclist, ride over the Purbeck hills for panoramic views of the area.
Looking for some adventure? The why not join one of our outdoor adventure specialists and have a go at coasteering, abseiling, climbing, paddle-boarding or kayaking? You could also take a sailing lesson or hire your own dinghy for the day.
If you’d rather head inland for some more sedate and less salty watery fun, then Wareham is where it’s at. You can join a guided kayak tour or hire a row boat, canoe or paddle-board to navigate the River Frome at your own pace.
Hop on-board with Wareham River Cruises or the Monarch Paddle Steamer for a gentle boat trip up and down the river from Wareham Quay to Poole Harbour – listen to the history of Wareham and look out for wildlife on the way.
Cruises also depart from Poole Quay to Brownsea Island and along the River Frome to Wareham.
Coastal boat trips and sea kayaking mean you can get up-close to cliffs inhabited by breeding birds. You might also be lucky enough to see dolphins and porpoises – just remember don’t get too close to disturb them! Be sure to try out the Kayak Wildlife Trail at Studland Bay and glass-bottomed kayaks at Kimmeridge Bay.
If you prefer to be in the water, why not try snorkelling at Kimmeridge Bay’s rocky limestone reefs – there is a snorkelling trail there in the summer. Swanage Pier is also a hive of marine activity and a popular diving spot.
Follow the Swanage Seen Art Trail and learn about the artists who were inspired by their surroundings. There are nine locations to visit, each showing a painting of Purbeck by a different artist.
Explore the rural Purbeck landscape that inspired famous painters such as Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Paul Nash and J.M.W. Turner, using a range of walking trails which highlight landscape art from the past. You’ll get a real sense of how the landscape has changed from views past and present.
You'll find all kinds of accommodation to suits your needs - whether it's a bit luxury on a romantic weekend or simply somewhere to rest your head after a hard days walking. For extra information and advice, contact one of our Tourist Information Centres.
