Use our calendar to see when our Guided Walks are taking place
Walks look at the history, wildlife and ecology of the area with a local, trained 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 taken on a circular walk to make the most of your time in the National Park and so you will not have to find your own way back to your vehicle at the end of the tour!
If you have your own way of getting to the New Forest National Park then this option is for you.
Book in advance or on the day.
£25 per adult
£10 Children under 16
Don’t have your own way of getting to the New Forest National Park? Take advantage of our Guided Walks with transport.
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 walk.
