Trips in The Lakes and Dales

The Lake District has 16 ‘lakes’, countless tarns and numerous rivers, making it a popular destination for guided canoeing and kayaking trips. Calm waters make for the perfect day of paddling with family or friends, while the rushing rivers and rapids are ideal for those seeking a more adrenaline-fuelled white water adventure.

If you are holidaying in the Yorkshire Dales, then you will not be disappointed with what’s on offer for wild water enthusiasts. The River Wharfe and Washburn provide exciting stretches of white water and popular spots for steep creeking. Aysgarth Falls, Eller Beck and Upper Wharfe are some of the classic steep creeking spots for experienced kayakers, attracting visitors from far and wide.

We had such a fantastic day, we got exactly what we wanted from our activity day! Chris was a great instructor, so positive and enthusiastic, it was brilliant to have one to one tuition.

A fantastic day spent in the outdoors with lovely company and loads of guidance from Chris and Lynn. Canoeing, making the pancakes, learning to gather kindling and light a fire made the day most enjoyable.
