image for Canoeing item typeCanoeing - Coniston at Adventure North Westadd to shortlist






Paddling in our open Canadian canoes, allow you to take in stunning lake district views. Our canoeing sessions offer our customers the opportunity to develop paddling techniques, as well as, to take part in fun and games on the water. During the warmer months our canoeing activities often result in getting wet (wetsuits are provided), whereas, throughout the colder, winter months we tend to keep our customers dry!
If you like adventures or the story ‘Swallows and Amazon’s’ you might like to try our ‘Swallows and Amazon’s’ inspired adventure session. This session is ideal for families, as it allows your little one’s imagination to run free! Canoes are doubled up and rafted together to allow families to paddle together to the famous ‘Wild Cat Island’ (Peel Island). On landing, everyone can disembark and explore the island. Following the story theme customers will make a shelter and fire. Groups then have the chance to cook marshmallows and popcorn on the fire. If appropriate, participants will have the opportunity to jump off rocks into the lake. On the return journey you might also have time for a few games on the water.

What’s involved: - paddle to Island – island exploration – games on the water – jump off rocks into lake if appropriate – skills and techniques coaching
