Paddle boarding (SUP) and Hike, a Day in the Lake District

£94 per person

A great day in the Lakes, enjoying two fantastic activities. We’ll spend the morning on Ullswater Lake, paddle-boarding our way around the islands and soaking in the surrounding mountain scenery!

Out on the water, everything becomes tranquil and relaxing. You can practice your balancing skills with some paddle-boarding yoga, go for a dip and make a few super splashes diving into the calm deep waters, or simply enjoy your paddle and try your best to stay on your board. Whatever floats your boat! 

Following a delicious lakeside lunch, we’ll head out for a walk. It’s impossible to visit the Lake District and not venture up one of the enticing hills. The intensity of the walk will be based on the group, we’ll collect details of previous hill walking background and current fitness level/walking ability and we’ll tailor a walk to suit. With so many to choose from in the area it’s not difficult to plot a low/mid-level stroll through some gorgeous valleys, or take it a bit higher and find a nice summit! This is a great opportunity to feast your eyes on the Lakes prized sheep, the Herdwick! With their adorable smiling face it’s hard to believe these beautiful creatures derived from Viking times!
