With the amount of outdoor activities on offer in North Devon and Exmoor, you will certainly be spoilt for choice. For cyclists, there are a number of ways to enjoy the local landscape; the Tarka Trail offers a 30 mile, relatively flat, traffic-free route through woodland and along the estuary - great for a family day out. For a little more adrenaline, hit the slopes for some tricky mountain biking or if you’re more of a road cyclist, Exmoor offers inspiring and challenging circuits to enjoy along the coast.
The North Devon beaches offer superb surf which is an irresistible draw for long and short boarders across the country. Known for our water sports, you can try your hand at almost anything – from surfing and paddle boarding, to sailing and diving, not to mention kiteboarding and kayaking!
Up for a new adventure? Take a coasteering tour – swimming, climbing and jumping the route! Alternatively, take to the water for a fishing trip or coastal cruise and enjoy the view from the water.
If you’d prefer something a little calmer, Exmoor encompasses beautiful walking country with a stunning mix of scenery, allowing routes for all abilities. If you’re looking for a longer distance trail, the South West Coast Path runs the length of North Devon, whilst the newly opened Coleridge Way offers a scenic alternative. For equine enthusiasts, consider taking a riding holiday, with superb hacking across Exmoor and scenic rides along the beach.
For an all-round experience, try an adrenaline junkie’s day out incorporating a number of activities, including climbing, kayaking, high ropes and much more. Don’t forget, the award-winning Calvert Trust Exmoor provides accessible activities for all too.
