A group of hardy adventurers gathered on a sunny early evening in June. Sleeping bags packed, wetsuits at the ready, they were keen for an epic Adventure Weekend!
Our Wild Bivy, Night Paddle And Sunrise SUP overnighter crams as much adventure as possible into a short period of time. This allows you to leave the office at 5 and be on the water in just a couple of hours!
Adventure weekend underway, with wetsuits donned and paddles at the ready, the group were soon afloat and on their way to Old Harry. Studland bay was beautifully clear and we spotted plenty of sea birds and marine life along the way. Beyond the rocks we tested our sea kayaking skills in choppier waters navigating further along the Dorset coastline towards Swanage! After a peaceful few few hours of paddling we stopped to take the opportunity to land on a deserted beach to watch the sun set and make our plans for the morning.
Adventure Weekend Wild Bivi
Back on dry land at middle beach we set up our beds for the night at our private wild camping spot. Bivi bags laid out and hot chocolate poured- the adventurers bedded down to the sounds of the sea in the distance, as well as the local wildlife! We are lucky to have our own private area set back from the beach to offer these unique wild camping experiences in studland bay. Over night adventures with Fore Adventure are the only way you can experience camping in studland close to the shore and with the waves as your soundtrack.
The alarm came early the next morning, along with a sighting of a badger! The sight of the sunrise, as we glided across Studland Bay on SUPs, made the early start all worthwhile. Studland was deserted and made the perfect breakfast spot to enjoy our bacon cooked over the camping stove, well deserved after the mornings sunrise sup!
Feeling so fortunate to have spent some quality time with nature on this overnight adventure we headed back on our sups to the beach to end the experience.
