Details

As the name suggest the Lake District is a great place to experience canoeing on its many open expanses of water. Our instructors will coach you through all aspects of operating safely whilst journeying on open water. During your experience we will provide you with the skills to prepare a boat, paddle efficiently and sail if conditions allow.
Due to our location we predominately use Wastwater - the deepest lake in England, which is a stunning, quiet and remote lake tucked away in the Western Lake District. Throughout the year visitors and locals flock to take in its dramatic beauty which was voted Britain’s favourite view in 2007.
Minimum age: 5
Duration: Half Day or Full Day (Half day can be part of a multi-activity day)
