We will work with you to compile a list of challenges that are suitable for your group. If you’re not happy with one of the activities, we can substitute it for another of your choosing.

This is a great activity for all ages and fitness abilities to enjoy. Urban orienteering is a fantastic way to discover the picturesque seaside town of Swanage. This fun filled activity will take allow you to explore the town, gardens and beach, so you can really make the most of your time in Dorset.

So, why not consider combining urban orienteering with one or more of our outdoor adventure activities? It’s a great way to spend the afternoon after an action packed watersports activity.
