Lake District Outdoor Activities Summer Programme

For a wide range of adventurous outdoor and indoor activities over the summer holidays for families and friends in the Lake District take a look at Distant Horizons.  Based in Ullswater we are surrounded by a fantastic adventure playground and offer activities from 1 hour to full days and even overnight bivouacs.  When the summer weather is being temperamental our indoor activity centre has plenty to keep everyone entertained with a variety of fun activities to choose from. 

Either pick from the indoor and outdoor activities listed or call us if you have something different in mind and we'll plan the perfect session for you.
