Hiking & Outdoors

Getting outside as a family is really important. Not only are there the obvious health benefits, but it’s also a chance to bond as a family as well as teach your children and broaden their horizons.

It doesn’t matter if it is a stroll down to the local park or you have sights on bagging summits, hiking and getting outside can be as gentle or strenuous as you want.

We’ve pulled together a number of tips for hiking with kids, from enthusing them to get outside, to choosing the right gear to avoid people getting cold, wet, and miserable.

Find a trail, a day out or another outdoor activity below, and read our tips for hiking with kids, exploring nature, health and fitness, games and things to play, cycling, navigation and compass skills, and family outdoor gear reviews.
