Canoeing & Kayaking




Half Day Introduction to Canoeing or Kayaking

There is nothing like messing about on the water!  Why not spend some time in a canoe or sit on top kayak and explore one of the many lakes or rivers in the Lake District? We can teach you how to paddle your canoe or kayak so you can start to explore. Canoeing and kayaking is great for families and friends and can be enjoyed by all, no matter what your ability. We can help you visit secluded bays, explore islands and see the area from a different angle.  

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? Or have a picnic of locally produced food or even a BBQ? Canoes can also be used as part of a journey or an overnight camp. So come and enjoy a half, full or multi-day canoe journey. Combine it with another activity such as rock climbing or ghyll scrambling to make a fun day out for you and your group.



This activity is suitable for people with little or no experience of canoeing or kayaking.
