Come and take part in outdoor swimming events, including the Great North Swim - the UK's biggest open water swimming event, which takes place every year on Lake Windermere. Maybe you fancy learning to water-ski or sail. Or if you want a fun based team activity why not try dragon boat racing or raft building.

Cumbria is also home to over 80 lakes, meres, waters, and tarns making it a natural home for open water swimming and watersports; all set within the beautiful and scenic Lake District landscape.

Coniston Water, Derwentwater, Ullswater and Windermere are all navigable lakes. There are numerous other lakes, tarns, rivers and becks in Cumbria, which, with the permission of the landover, can be excellent places for a dip in the water.
