“Fantastic Canoeing experience on Bealieu River”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2012

We were a group of 6 that involved a 12yr old & 13yr old and 2 over 60's. The instructors were great, right from the briefing at the beginning and this continued on the river. Stuart was great and really encouraging as for some reason our canoe kept veering off to the left. They were really patient and waited for anyone lagging behind. It was a beautiful morning and the river was stunning and despite there being a good no of canoes, possibly 15 it was really relaxing. Although they gave you a list of what to bring ie change of clothes, you do get quite sweaty, so I would advise a clean top and deodrant on a sunny day! I would definitely do this again and if you are unsure, just give it a go as you'll have a great time. Can't recommend New Forest Activities enough. Thank you to all.

“Kayaking”

We had a super kayaking experience. Learned some new techniques and had a lovely couple of hours meandering down the river. Very pleasant and personable instructor.

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2012

I was looking for activities to book the day before, so a little last minute! Very helpful and friendly customer service, Julie really made me feel she was trying her best to accomodate us. Archery taster in the morning was good fun and well run. Battlefield Live in the afternoon......bit more apprehensive about that, as we are two middle aged women and not particularly fit . Needn't have worried, this activity was the highlight of my day. Really friendly organiser and he made sure we enjoyed ourselves. I will certainly be booking further activities with this company.
