Walks look at the history, wildlife and ecology of the New Forest National Park with a trained, local guide. Walks are suitable for all ages as long as you are able to walk over uneven ground for up to 3 hours (with breaks).
You will be picked up from Salisbury train station and driven through the historic villages of Wiltshire and Hampshire on your way to the Northern part of the National Park. This is an area that the locals know well but few visitors get to see which means there are some wonderful opportunities to see wildlife and really feel like you are the only one in the National Park.
This option is perfect if you are visiting Salisbury but will not have your own transport as it is very difficult to access the Northern part of the National Park by public transport. This is also a good option if you would like to visit the National Park but do not wish to navigate the rabbit warren of country lanes in your own transport. As you will be with us for 4 hours this still leaves plenty of time to see the sites of Salisbury, even if you are just visiting for the day.
Book in advance or on the day.

Do you have your own way of getting to the New Forest National Park? You can still join us for a Guided Walk.
We also offer Night Hikes that allow you to experience the New Forest in an exciting, new way. These hikes give the best opportunity for some wildlife spotting and often create excellent photo opportunities. Use our calendar to find out when our next night hike is taking place.
- Wear suitable shoes: Walks take place over uneven ground. While every attempt is made to choose routes to minimise impact on the ground, some areas may be wet or muddy. Closed toe shoes with good grip are advised.
- Embrace the British weather: Walks will take place in all weather. Bring a rain coat/sun cream/extra layers just in case.
- When nature calls: There are no toilets on any of the routes. Please consider this before leaving.
- Look but don’t touch: It is highly likely that you will see ponies, cattle, donkeys and possibly pigs on your walk. While these animals are not wild they are not used to human contact. Under no circumstance should you try to pet or feed animals in the National Park.
- Leave only footsteps: The National Park is a unique ecosystem, even something as simple as a tissue or piece of chewing gum can have an impact. If you carry it into the National Park it needs to be carried out.
- Smoking is not permitted at any point on the walks.
