Exploring Northumberland

From boat trips to the islands off the coast to days out walking in the hills, Northumberland has mile after mile of ‘Great Outdoors’ to explore and there are very good local companies who can show you the ropes.

Award winning Shepherd’s Walks are guided by Shepherd Jon Monks, a local Northumbrian Hill Shepherd. Northern Experience Wildlife Tours offer bird watching, photograph and wildlife tours while Adventure Northumberland in Alnwick offer guided cycle tours, bike hire, sea or river kayaking and canoeing, raft building, climbing and survival trips.

If you want to see the outdoors from a different, slightly higher angle then ‘Go Ape!’ at Matfen Hall offers a high wire forest adventure for the over 10’s.
