Get Active Outdoors

Be active. Discover our great outdoors.

Be an outsider this summer and get involved!

In Herefordshire and Worcestershire, we are fortunate to have wonderful natural assets ranging from forests, lakes, rivers, hills and parkland. Our two counties form the perfect landscape for physical activity, from canoeing down the River Wye to strolling the Malvern Hills and exploring the Wyre Forest.

We already know of the benefits that being physically active can have on our mental wellbeing, yet a recent study has scientifically proven, for the first time ever, that being outdoors has a positive effect on our mental health.

Further insight reveals the many other benefits of being physically active outdoors, including:

- Having fun

- Escaping the pressures of everyday life

- Connecting with nature

- Feeling young

So whatever your motive, be an outsider with us this summer and be active in our great outdoors.
