Adventurous indoor and outdoor family activities in the Lake District

Family indoor and outdoor activity fun can be found all year round in the Lake District, especially at Distant Horizons.  Come rain or shine the Lake District National Park has a wide range of family friendly adventures and at Distant Horizons we make sure your family have a safe, fun and memorable experience during your time in Cumbria. 

When the sun shines there is no better place for your family than to be enjoying an activity on a lake in a kayak or canoe, paddling along and taking in a whole different perspective from the seat of your boat.  Your family can relax and watch the world go by whilst gliding along the lake, or test your nerves on the best cliff jumping and abseiling spots on Ullswater.  If canoeing and kayaking isn’t your thing then let us take your family gorge walking where you will climb and abseil waterfalls, go down shoots and slides and maybe even take in some scenery whilst you’re at it. 

Getting wet not your cup of tea? Why not try a family rock climbing session, celebrating on top as you conquer each challenge and then abseiling back down in some of the most stunning activity locations in Cumbria. 

What about the wet and windy weather?  Distant Horizons has been operating in the Lake District for over 20 years and our qualified instructors are dedicated to looking after your family on your activities and making sure you keep warm and happy in the worst conditions.  If your family doesn't fancy braving the Lakeland elements then try our indoor activity centre based on our private estate in Ullswater, surrounded by fields and mountains we can assure you that being indoors doesn’t mean the fun and adventure has to stop.  Our fully fitted indoor activity centre, which is open all year round, caters for climbing, abseiling, archery and crate stack. There’s no better way for your family to have fun and learn to climb in wet weather than with a roof over their heads and a hot drink at the ready.  So leave it to us to provide family adventures and activities in the Lake District whatever the weather and give us a ring and we’ll personalise your experience and give you a great family day out.  All of our family activities are suitable for everyone over the age of 4 and can be booked year round by calling: 017684 86465
