Lake District Canoeing Weekend Price £270

April 17th to 20th  Friday to Monday.

This is canoeing course based at Witherslack Cycle Barn, near Kendal (link opens in new tab).

Accommodation is dormitory style with 2,4 or 6 to a room.

The station for this course is Oxenholme. Pick up 5.30pm on Friday. Return trains after 9am on the Monday.

On this course you will learn the skills needed to paddle open canoes on rivers with gentle rapids. Conditions permitting, day one will be spent on Lake Windermere and day two on a local river.

No experience is necessary but you need enough confidence in the water to cope if you fall in! Buoyancy aids will be worn and plenty of help will be available. Each visually impaired participant will be paired up with a sighted guide in a double open canoe.

If you would like to book or even just find out more, then get in touch.
