You're completely immersed in nature on the Studland peninsula on the wild Jurassic Coast of Dorset. Watching the heath, shoreline and woodland change throughout the seasons is a constant source of inspiration for anyone who loves nature. 

Explore the sea and its shore, as well as the life that inhabits it, from in, on or under the water. Navigate the caves and sea stacks in a kayak, join a snorkelling adventure and discover the underwater world, or float leisurely above the water (depending on your balance) from a stand up paddle board. 


For something a little different, try kayak foraging. This involves learning what to look for along the shores, identifying and collecting edible plants and seaweeds, then cooking up a feast back on dry land.
