Canoeing & Kayaking


Family Half Day Canoeing or Kayaking

Children and adults love messing about on the water! Why not spend some time as a family in a canoe or on sit on top kayaks exploring one of the Lakes Districts most beautiful Lakes? We can teach you how to paddle your canoe or kayak so you can start to explore. Canoeing is great for families and can be enjoyed by all, no matter what your ability. Sit on top kayaks offers the chance to get wet and have fun! We can help you visit secluded bays, explore islands and see the area from a different angle. For younger families it is possible to raft canoes together to make them very stable yet allow all to have some great fun! So come and explore Ullswater with your family.

We provide all you need to have a fun, safe time including your own personal guide. Why not combine time canoeing or kayaking with stopping off to light a small fire and toast marshmallows? Why not combine it with another activity such as rock climbing to make a fun day out for you and your family?


Covid-19 Information

It is very important to us to ensure the safety of our customers and staff. During this pandemic we will exclude participation by those who have displayed symptoms of Covid-19 in the last 14 days, or have been in a household/had contact with someone who has displayed symptoms in the last 14 days. Eden Outdoor Adventures believe that it is not unreasonable nor would it be considered an act of discrimination to exclude someone on the grounds of Covid-19 transmission at this time. People/groups that are excluded will be offered to re-schedule or be given a full refund.

As all our activities are provided on a bespoke basis we will continue not to mix groups together. We will offer activities to individuals, couples and families who come together as we are allowed to do so. This is in line with Government, our National Governing Bodies and Outdoor Industry Body guidelines.

Eden Outdoor Adventures has carried out Covid-19 risk assessments for all its operations and has put in place measures to help keep everyone safe at this time. We will continue to review these in light of any new guidance. A copy of our Covid-19 risk assessment can be found on the Covid-19 page.
