Outdoor activities

Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and on the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, Swanage is a great location to enjoy a variety of outdoor activities. From kayaking to rock climbing, coasteering to walking up to the top of Ballard Down and looking down on the Old Harry Rocks, there’s plenty to keep everyone active.

Lots of schools, colleges and universities bring their students to study the world famous geography of the Jurassic Coast and combine the trip with confidence and team building outdoor activities. There are a number of established companies in and around Swanage that host these visits, providing organised events and accommodation.

While you can just turn up and do your own thing, whatever your age, you can easily find outdoor activity instructors and companies to help organise a great day out.
