Our National Park is a great place to get active. This is not a fenced-off preserve – it’s a living, working landscape which will bring out your adventurous side.
There are masses of paths and trails for walkers, runners, cyclists, mountain bikers, horse riders and wildlife-watchers. There’s a brilliant range of organised activities on offer, too, from gentle recreational pursuits like photography to full-on adrenaline sports such as paragliding, rafting and abseiling.
Want to try something new? Our qualified instructors will show you the ropes.
