Family Canoeing


DO IT...


Family Canoe Journey (2 half days + overnight)

Wondering what to do for a weekend? Enjoy messing about on the water and camping out under the stars? Then this short overnight canoe journey is a great way to have some fun. Learn the basic skills needed to paddle your canoe and then head off on your journey. Explore bays and islands and stop to light a fire, make a hot drink and toast marshmallows. Camping is on a lake shore camp site with toilet facilities etc.  After a night camping pack up and continue exploring the lake with a chance to play games and even swim!

We will provide all the equipment and food you will need for this fun family trip, along with providing you with your own guide. So why not discover a different side to Ullswater, Derwentwater, Windermere or Coniston Water?


This journey is aimed at families with or without any previous canoeing experience. For younger families we can raft canoes together to make them more stable and allow the whole family the chance to have some fun.
