Hong Kong has much to offer, with spectacular scenery, fascinating wildlife, great hiking trails, and gorgeous stretches of coastline. Plus, there are experienced, passionate people who can help you get the most out of a foray into the wilder areas of Hong Kong.
Here's info on an outdoor week I led for a group from a local school.
This was aimed at giving schoolchildren experience of broad range of places in wilder parts of Hong Kong, spanning variety of places such as wetlands, woodland, hills, ravines, and coastlines. We aimed to see a mix of local wildlife, with "star" species such as black-faced spoonbill and Chinese white dolphin; also visiting traditional villages.
Kayak and Hike is a Hong Kong company who decided a few years ago that "The Otherside of Hong Kong" was not on the map! They started working to promote the green country parks, which make up nearly 70% of the total area of H.K. 1,090 sq km.
Now natural excursion ideals are providing a full range of outdoor adventure activities, focusing on corporate events and outings for individuals and small groups based in Hong kong. You can explore these special and remote parts by kayaking, hiking, mountain biking, powerboating and helicopter rides.
Hong Kong's bubblegum-pink dolphins (Sousa chinensis) live right next to an airport, a power plant, highrise buildings and factories. They are threatened by the changes brought about by Hong Kong's rapid economic development.
Come and see these beautiful dolphins for an unforgettable experience and learn more about the threats they are facing.
Seafaris are exciting opportunities to explore the rugged and dramatic coastline of Sai Kung (New Territories) from the comfort of a safe and reliable speedboat.
It is a fantastic day out; far from the crowds of Central and TST and a chance to visit white sandy beaches, admire incredible geological coastal formations and see a variety of wildlife. There is also ample time to snorkel above coral communities, swim or simply kick back and lie on the beach.
Experience Hong Kong's internationally renowned Mai Po Marshes Nature Reserve, winter home and migration stopover for tens of thousands of wetland birds
If you would like a private birdwatching experience at Hong Kong's Mai Po Marshes nature reserve, consider booking the Mai Po Wetland Experience, with Martin Williams or another experienced Hong Kong birding guide.
Here's an introduction to Ma Po, from a film on HK nature tourism I co-produced, Explore Wild Hong Kong!:
