Vad du kommer att göra

This is a gentle 3 hour walk from Swanage to Studland that includes some stunning and close-up views of Old Harry Rocks and Studland Bay. There are many wonderful opportunities for taking photographs, learning about the history and geology of the area, and for spotting wildlife.

I will teach you all about how this amazing coastline has formed, how it has inspired many artists and authors and share stories of ancient sea battles, smugglers and shipwrecks.

We start on Swanage seafront. The first part of the walk takes us along the beach, before starting a gentle climb up onto the hills that overlook the bay. Once at the top we can rest and enjoy the 360 degree panoramic views, with our eventual destination now visible in the distance.

The route follows the crest of the hill before descending towards the chalk cliffs, arches and stacks of Old Harry Rocks. These are world famous features and I can show you how to safely get up close to them and understand how they have been formed.

From here it is a flat walk all the way to Studland Bay via secret WW2 bunkers, finishing at the cafe at Middle Beach; a great place to have lunch and spend the afternoon swimming or exploring the nature reserve.

It is a 10 minute walk from the cafe to the bus stop where you can return to the starting point by taking the half-hourly bus service back to Swanage (a 20 minute ride).

I can help you get the most from your time in Dorset and look forward to joining you in exploring the Dorset coast soon.

This walk along the Jurassic coast was a truly unique and fun experience! The views alone made this walk pretty amazing, but Barry's knowledge & stories added the wow factor...I mean, how many hosts do you know that can do an acid test, on the spot?? We loved it and can recommend it.

This was our first visit to Devon and we wanted to start hiking with an experienced guide. Our 2 daughters (12 and 17 year olds) really enjoyed the tour with Barry. He has been very friendly and knowledgeable.

Hiking is a great activity to do if in Dorset. Moreover when you have a guide like Barry it takes the experience to another level. The route that we covered was beautiful, safe and very well organised. Barry is very knowledgeable, engaging and passionate. We have left learning a lot and it was worth every penny. Thank you
