Let our expert local instructors organise an unforgetable canoeing journey that explores a tranquil lake nearby your holiday location, or guide you down an exciting stretch of white water on a nearby river.

Our freindly guides are happiest when messing about on the water, and will happily share their passion for canoeing and their intimate knowlege of the lakes and rivers of Cumbria and The Dales with you.

“happiest when messing about on the water”

Practice your current canoeing skills and learn new ones – like sailing and rescues – from our team of highly qualified and experienced leaders on stunning lakes and rivers among breath taking mountain scenery, most places are accessable by boat, so classic days on Lakes like Ulswater, Coniston (where you can explore The Swallows and Amazons settings), Derwent, Thirmere and Windermere are popular - as are river expeditions such as the River Derwent, Eden and Eamont or The Lune in The Dales. 

“cooking a hot lunch on a remote island or beach can be included in your days adventure”

You can choose to spend either a relaxing or adrenalin filled canoeing day with us on the water in and around The Lake District or Yorkshire Dales. Cooking  a hot lunch on a remote island or beach can be included in your days adventure on the water with us.

The Rhodes Family and friends asked us to arrange a half days half days canoeing as part of their weekend get together in The Lakes
