Canoeing is a very popular activity if your group is looking to explore and journey on Lake Windermere. Used on their own they can be paddled solo or tandem, mastering the basic skills of turning and forward paddling. An exciting variation if you have a larger group is to raft two canoes together to make a catamaran. This provides a great team building activity, creating a stable vessel capable of navigating the wildest conditions of Windermere without fear of capsize.
To progress your paddling skills we have a river fleet of canoes and can take you to some of the Lake District's finest white-water rivers. Canoeing along with Kayaking can be offered as an option for GCSE, BTEC and A-level PE and is an option for DofE skills courses and expeditions.
