Whether orienteering, building dens or making a house for a hedgehog, this guide is the ideal way for all the family to interact with wildlife and nature and find adventures in wild places.

The book begins with easy and approachable adventures perfect for families with younger kids, such as foraging and fossil hunting, and progresses into more challenging adventures, such as wild swimming, surfing and wilderness survival.

The adventures range from an afternoon trip to the farm to camping excursions, so can be used for spontaneous half-term day trips or for summer holiday ideas. Each activity comes with suggestions of National Trust places to visit for the adventure, and the ideas take in woodland, beaches, mountains and parks. The book is packed with handy hints, fun facts and step-by-step guides to activities such as making your own raft and building a bug hotel.

Whether you are watching the sunrise, mountain biking or kite flying, this guide is packed with ideas for getting all the family outdoors and exploring in all weathers and all seasons.
