We are completely immersed in nature here on our peninsula in Studland on the Jurassic Coast in Dorset, watching our heath, shoreline and woodland change throughout the seasons is a constant source of inspiration for us. We have designed our foraging and wild food adventures to get you close to nature and to let us guide you through what makes this area of Dorset so special and unique.

My wife and I absolutely loved the day we spent with Fore adventures. Dan was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and we particularly enjoyed the foraging part of the day with the razor clams being a particular highlight.
Date of experience: July 2019
Fantastic day out for my family at the Halloween bushcraft. Was really well organised and we came away with a few things that we had made. Ollie was a fantastic instructor and I can’t thank Jade & Dan enough for arranging this for us.
