Kayaking

Have you ever wanted to explore one of the most beautiful lakes in the UK by Kayak? If so we may have the perfect thing for you…

You will meet your local guide at Newlands Adventure Centre. Once everything is set up and organised we will head down to our private marina at the northern end of Derwentwater. Kayaking is one of our more demanding but ultimately rewarding activities.

Once fitted with waterproofs and a buoyancy aid, your Instructor will give a land based introduction to the skills needed to control the kayak. Using a stable single seat kayak, your Instructor will take you to one of the nearby sheltered corners to introduce games and exercises to help you quickly master control of your boat. From there you might get to explore some of the islands, or just go have loads of fun in and maybe even out of the Kayak! 

3hr Sessions cost £35pp!
