Instead of having the kids watching TV on the sofa this half term, why not get back to exploring the great outdoors with a trip to the Isle of Wight? There are plenty of outdoor activities on the Island for families and children to get involved in, from cycling to archery. For those that want to relax, there’s even yoga on the beach to try out!
We’ve included a round-up of the best outdoor activities to get involved in for the October half term.
Experience yoga on the beach
For parents with slightly older children, the family could take part in Yoga on the beach with Emma. It’s perfect to relax during the half term break and rejuvenate the body and mind. The outdoor yoga classes take place on the Island’s most beautiful beaches, plus being outdoors can also contribute to a healthy wellbeing. Emma leads participants through various transitions and poses, designed to stretch the body whilst strengthening core muscles.
Bring out your adventurous side
Those looking to push themselves further can discover the wealth of activities available with Adventure Activities Isle of Wight. From dry sports such as archery and axe throwing, to water based activities such as kayaking and paddle boarding, there’s something to suit all tastes and a chance to experience a different side to the Isle of Wight.
If being outdoors all day isn’t enough, there’s even the option to sleep outdoors on the Isle of Wight. Goodleaf Tree Climbing offers tree top camping, as well as lessons in tree climbing followed by dinner in a local pub. Later, guests can sleep among the tree tops and watch the sunrise in the morning. Better still, guests are greeted with fresh coffee and local pastries the next morning in their hammocks.
Cycle around the Island
The Island has plenty to offer if you’re looking to enjoy some cycling. Those discovering the Freshwater cycle route can stop off at the Dimbola Museum & Galleries at Freshwater Bay, which showcases a range of artwork, both local and national. The tea room located at the museum also offers cakes made locally and a beautiful Freshwater Bay backdrop to admire whilst sipping a hot drink.
