Many visitors come to Dorset to experience specific activities, from ‘soft adventure’ such as walking and cycling to the more extreme sports of diving, paragliding and rock-climbing. For visitors who don’t usually do such activities their first kayaking trip, coasteering expedition or windsurfing lesson could turn a basic holiday into something much more memorable.
Although some sports need specialist equipment and training, many Dorset visitors enjoy the simple pursuit of walking or hiking to take in the exceptional scenery.
In this lesson we will look at some of the activities and sports that are available, and which visitors come to try. If you have experience of any of these, you can use your knowledge to recommend and build a relationship with your customers – which all adds to creating a good visitor experience.
