Active and Outdoors

The Folkestone and Hythe area offers year round opportunities for those seeking an active adventure....

Kite surfing, dry slope skiing, golf and swimming are just some of the activities available to visitors. 

With miles of coastline, The North Downs Way and The Royal Military Canal , the options for walking and cycling are numerous with routes for every level of fitness.

Water based activities abound: Folkestone Sea Sports offer sea based activities, Action Watersports in Lydd use a fresh water sheltered lake to teach various water sports, and the swimming pools in Hythe and Folkestone are available for those rainy days.

Canoeing and Kayaking is available on the Royal Military Canal in Hythe, or if you feel like something more sedate, hire a rowing boat or take one of the Electric Boat trips on offer.

For something a bit different, why not try the Folkestone Sports Centre and give dry slope skiing or snowboarding a go. The are also snow tubes and swizzbobs available for some fantastic family fun.  Indoor activities such as table tennis, badminton and even curling are on offer for rainy day fun!
