Adventure Activities in Dorset

Lover of all things adventurous? Thrill seeker looking for your next adrenalin fix? If this sounds like you, a visit to Dorset should certainly be at the top of your ‘to do' list!

Nature’s playground 

The Dorset landscape provides the perfect playground for all manner of outdoor pursuits. From vast woodland wildernesses, mile upon mile of rolling countryside and some of the most dramatic coastline to be found anywhere. Dorset is just waiting to be conquered.

You can go foraging and then enjoy some wild cooking with Fore Adventure. Or perhaps you'd rather try one of their bushcraft or wild camping experiences. You'll definitely feel refreshed and more at one with nature afterwards.

Get your boots on

Dorset has an abundance of walks to enjoy. Whether it’s a coastal expedition tracing millions of year of history or a countryside trail taking in the county's rich cultural heritage, it’s all here for you to explore.

See the coast up close

Dorset’s famous Jurassic Coast is renowned throughout the world for holding the key to millions of years of history, yet many don’t get to experience the best view of this natural wonder - from the sea!

Take a blast along our jaw-dropping coastline by high speed RIB or tackle our shores on a guided coasteering adventure. Whatever your activity, we’re sure you won’t find a better backdrop!

Or how about scaling the heights at Rock Reef and Pier Zip where you can zip line from the end of Bournemouth Pier over the waves and onto the soft sandy beach?

Try deep sea fishing

Fancy testing your skills at sea fishing? Snapper Charters out of Weymouth and Swanage Sea Fishing offer trips for all ages and abilities. Plus you can borrow rods and tackle if you need to. The skippers will show you what to do if this is your first time fishing and before you know it you’ll have caught your first fish!
