Extreme & Off Road

Looking for something a bit different? A lazy amble down the lake not doing for you? Fear not, or perhaps fear a little…

Take the road less travelled and go cross country with an Kankku off road drive. Ditch two of those wheels and take off on a Lakeland Segway.

Abandon land all together and experience the Cumbrian landscape from the air with Lake District Gyroplanes or hurtling towards it in a freefall dive with the North West Parachuting Centre.

With these and many more, you are sure to have a thrilling time here.
