Canoeing on Derwentwater

You can’t come to the Lake District without taking to the water. Our water base is at the northern end of Derwentwater, one of the most beautiful lakes in England and close to the Centre. Canoeing is one of our more relaxing activities; easy to learn and great fun for all ages.

After fitting with waterproofs and a buoyancy aid, your Instructor will give a land based introduction to the basic skills required to control your canoe and what to do if you capsize ! Introductory games, exercises and activities quickly help you master your canoe to enable you to paddle further and perhaps to visit a island.
