Canoeing

Exploring the lakes by canoe is truly a relaxing and calming experience.

Open canoes are two person boats paddled with a single blade paddle. Sessions are first and foremost a fun day out and an idyllic way to explore the lakes. You will experience being able to take control of your own canoe and take it on a lake journey around Derwentwater or Ullswater, exploring secluded beaches and remote islands.

We'll stop off and explore the islands or beaches and have a hot drink boiled over an open fire.

NOTE: DUE TO COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS WE WILL BE OPERATING THE BUSINESS IN A REDUCED CAPACITY. SADLY, WE WILL NOT BE PROVIDING OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES FOR THE SUMMER OF 2020.

Who is Canoeing for?

Great for all groups and anyone who's never been canoeing before. Canoeing is great fun so suits everyone from your little people to adults. The bonus of this outdoor activity is that you don't even have to get wet if you don't want to........but we can't guarantee it!
