You can’t come to the Lake District without taking to the water and trying your hand at Kayaking. Our water base is at the northern end of Derwentwater, one of the most beautiful lakes in England and close to the Centre. Kayaking is one of our more demanding but ultimately rewarding activities.

Rock Climbing is one of our most popular activities. We use local crags which are best suited to beginners and intermediates and on the rare occasion that it rains, we have access to the Keswick indoor climbing wall.
Archery is one of the oldest outdoor leisure activities in the UK, practiced by peasants and Kings alike. Based at our onsite range, you will be introduced to the necessary skills and safety rules.
High Ropes Course
Climb, slide, balance and swing you way through the trees at height (approx.30 feet). Always under the supervision of your Instructor, you will travel through the tree tops to the final zip-line back to terra firma.
After a session on traditional archery targets to hone your shooting skills you are led by an Instructor through the woodland around the centre “hunting” our specially made foam creatures.
The Tower Experience
After meeting your Instructor and getting fitted with a harness and helmet, you will climb to the top of the 14m Tower, pausing to take in a sweeping views of the Helvellyn, Skiddaw and Blencathera ranges; unique and stunning views of the heart of the Lake District.
