Au programme

After a short introduction, we get on the water for a journey north, up Lake Windermere in Canadian Canoes - these can be stabilised if it would benefit the group or the weather is challenging. On the way you experience the profound shape of the Lake District Mountains rising up as we travel from the flatter coastlands towards the high hills. We make landfall at a piece of isolated land sticking out into the lake where we set up our day camp, learn to light fires from flint and cook our own three course lunch on the beach surrounded by trees and water.

Depending on conditions and needs we have a fantastic motor boat that can accompany us, this gives a great platform for equipment transport, can bring wheel chairs (wheel chairs just roll onto the front ramp), whizz someone back to a specialist toilet and the ability to take the group home if we're late leaving. We don't always bring it - we make a judgement depending on the needs of the group and conditions.

The actual event order is somewhat weather dependent and we will discuss alternative options for challenging weather nearer the time.
Other things to note:
We can accommodate a vast range of additional needs. We do however need some notice so we can bring the right equipment and plan accordingly please inform us of any additional needs before booking so we can discuss how best to make your experience great.

We are a husband, wife and dog team. We have taught in the outdoors for 25 years collectively, in Scotland, England, Middle east and Africa but mostly on the lovely shores, mountains and rock faces of the Lake District.

We have a wide range of skills: coaching canoeing, teaching bushcraft and helping those with additional needs enjoy the outdoors.

Destinations

Windermere - the longest lake in England and one with amazingly little public access making this experience quite unique. We have a special site about 3.5 miles away with permission to do bushcraft in the woodlands. It's both a beautiful journey and a camp spot.

A wonderful day out, Chris really tailored and personalised the day for us, a lovely balance of canoeing, bush craft and family fun. Would highly recommend.

A fantastic trip. We were the only ones on the trip (and basically the lake!). Chris is a very knowledgeable guide. Great equipment, beautiful location, and tasty food to top it all off.

Vicky was brilliant, made the day super relaxed and her fellow friend Oya (the dog) made the whole thing that bit more special. There's just nothing better than experiencing the beautiful Lake Windermere, making pizza and learning some new skills... perfect. Would highly recommend. What they are doing to enable everyone to enjoy these experiences made it even better for us to support.

Honestly I don’t think words can express just how amazing this experience is from beginning to end. Chris and Vicky have been exceptional even prior to booking. Originally the date advertised did not fit in with our itinerary however after requesting an alternative date it was swiftly accepted. Our experience ended up being a private one due to it being my partners birthday which again I am so grateful for. The safety and expertise given was superb. We were canoe amateurs to begin with but after our experience we would now class ourselves intermediate. If you have no confidence and want to learn then this is the perfect experience for you. After canoeing to our destination to then have a cookery class which consisted of homemade soup, pizzas (homemade dough too!) and crumble on what felt like a private island just topped it all off. The food was excellent and to learn how to start a fire and try ourselves was awesome. The views, oh boy do they speak for themselves. If you are in Cumbria and what to appreciate the scenery there is no better way than to do this than be on the lake. Chris and Vicky are so knowledgeable and well experienced to cater for all. If you have any questions or concerns then pop them a message they certainly answered many of mine and quickly too. This may have been our first experience with them but I can guarantee we will be back again. We certainly loved that their dog who may I also add was so friendly and well behaved, accompanied our trip which we loved! Thank you so much for honestly an experience we will never forget!

The whole experience was excellent. Me and my family all had a great time and really enjoyed ourselves for the whole day. This was the first time we have been canoeing and the both the instructors were very friendly. Aslo they gave very clear instructions. The location is absolutely beautiful with a lot of photo ops; not just the lake but also the island for the open fire cooking. The food was delicious, not to mention preparing it was a lot of fun. Overall it is was a great day and I definetely recommend it. Also I have a 6 year old daughter who was also occupied the whole time so don't worry about your little ones.
