Explore rolling hills, grassy meadows and magnificent golden beaches by going for a walk or cycle along the hedge-bound lanes and sandy dunes of Fife, or enjoy a picturesque game of golf. Visitors can also explore fascinating nature reserves for the best chance to see some of the region’s finest wildlife.

With so many sporting opportunities and experiences to try - why not use the following suggestions to help select what activities in Fife are right for you?

Fife may be The Home of Golf, but the great game is by no means the only sport available to those visiting the region. You can find many other activities on the Outdoor Fife website.

One of the best ways to experience Fife’s coastline, including quaint fishing villages, majestic forests, rolling countryside and history is along the Fife Coastal Path. This 115 mile trail stretches from the Forth Estuary in the south, to the Tay Estuary in the north. Fife Coastal Path signpost with Crail in the background

The striking seascapes along the way include many beautiful sandy beaches, perfect for lazing around in the summer months or an afternoon stroll in the winter. Why not spend the week exploring the whole path or select a specific section to complete in a day?

By far one of the most rewarding ways to explore the Kingdom of Fife is by bicycle. Either bring your own or hire one to take advantage of over 300 miles of dedicated cycle paths. Cycle along disused railway paths and tranquil country lanes and go through magnificent forests and historic towns in one of the country’s most comprehensive route systems. 

There's also a great choice of watersports available including wakeboarding and water-skiing, as well as adventure sports such as abseiling which make the most of the great outdoors.

Soak up Fife's natural beauty as you choose from a great range of outdoor activities.
