This tour gives you a comprehensive look at the villages and estuaries of the New Forest National Park, the outstanding coast of Dorset and the isles of Wight and Purbeck. It combines all the locations and cycling of our coastal 5 and 7 night New Forest tours and is a real treat with gorgeous hotels.
The forests, heaths and pasturland of the New Forest provide the back drop for the first few days as you ride to Brockenhuirst and on to Beaulieu and Lymington. Here is a wealth of maritime history to explore before you cross to the Isle of Wight and continue the wonderful traffic free pedalling which shapes much of this tour. Back on the mainland, the itinerary leads you along quays and cliffs with sand spit and beach side cycling and a couple of ferry crossings to the loved Isle of Purbeck. Not an island proper, but rather a tucked away chalky coastal corner of Dorset, you can enjoy its unspoilt beaches and inland its woods, rural charms and the small characterful town of Wareham. The tour offers huge variety with time to enjoy the many diversions on offer.
