16 Sep 2021, by Naturebreak

Autumn is on the horizon and whilst we'll all soon be donning our scarfs, coats and cosy socks we still want to get outside and have some fun in nature. We've listed our top 5 activities which you can get your teeth into this Autumn, allowing you to have fun, get outside and keep warm all at the same time.

Wild Seaside Adventure at Preston Sands, Devon

This is your chance to get up close and personal with some of Devon's most beautiful coastal wildlife. Enjoy a brisk walk along the beach to do a bit of bird watching, as well as keeping an eye on the sea for the pods of dolphins which frequently inhabit the bay. You'll be guided by an expert local ecologist as you visit an award winning and family friendly, red sand beach right in the heart of the English Riviera.


Navigating with Nature in Dartmoor, Devon

If the fast paced, technological world we live in is getting too much, unplug and get away to Dartmoor's stunning moorland whilst learning beginner navigation skills. You'll be on foot the whole time so this is definitely a chance to get your blood pumping as you use a map and compass, as well clues in the landscape and in the sky to build your confidence in exploring new places and walking off the beaten track.


Rock Climbing Adventure at Croyde Bay, North Devon

Sure you can have loads of fun at ground level but why not take a chance and take your adventure up, up and away. This is an action-packed adventure where you can enjoy all the thrilling rock climbing experiences Croyde Bay has to offer. You'll get the chance to experience some of the region's most exhilarating and varied natural playgrounds as you climb, scramble and hold on tight to the rugged North Devon coastline.


Wild Ponies Hands-On Experience & Guided Walk at Dartmoor, Devon

What's better than two feet? Four feet! And these gorgeous Dartmoor Heritage Ponies are as good at having a great time as you are. You'll start your journey on foot, through a stunning landscape and along part of the historic Haytor Granite Tramway before you happen upon the incredible lake-filled quarry. Then you'll head off to the Dartmoor Pony Heritage Trust to spend some time grooming, hoof-picking, and walking these beautiful ponies on a lead rein in the ring. A real hands-on experience for lovers of the outdoors.


Canoe Safari in Devon and Cornwall

If you've had enough of using your legs to work up a sweat, this waterborne activity will work your upper body, not that you'll notice as you'll be mesmerised by the amazing landscapes. On this adventure of discovery you'll be accompanied by a friendly, knowledgeable and experienced canoeing expert as you paddle around the lake before warming up with a hot chocolate.

Summer may be drawing to a close but that doesn't mean your love of the outdoors should close down too, the UK is brimming with outdoor activities which can keep your adventures running all year long.
