Water Activities


We offer a range of water based outdoor activities including Canoeing, Improvised Raft Building, Ghyll Scrambling & Cliff Jumping:

Open Canoeing

Our most popular activity – Open Canoeing or Canadian Canoeing is a great way to explore the outdoors with other people. With expert tuition you will be on the water and paddling in no time at all. With a mimimum of 2 people per canoe this activity is ideal for groups, families or Stag & Hen do’s. Canoe’s can be rafted together and even sailed across the lake when the wind is blowing.

Improvised Raft building

Construct your own raft from the barrels, spas and rope to hold your entire group and undertake a short journey or race on the lake before it falls apart! A great activity for groups, team away days and Stag & Hen do’s. Perfect for those with a competitive streak – be prepared for a soaking!

Ghyll scrambling

Also known as Gorge Walking this is the ultimate water & rock adrenalin. Scramble up a steep mountain river through, under and over rocks, waterfalls and gulleys stopping off to jump into rock pools and slide down waterfalls. Step up the adventure by adding in roped climbs and abseils down waterfalls in our canyoning adventure.

Cliff Jumping

Take a flying leap from the lakeside cliff into the cool waters. Pure adrenalin! Ideal as part of a full day out canoeing, kayaking or sailing.
