Windermere 21

This kayaking challenge is a feat of endurance as you take on 21 miles by circumnavigating the longest lake in England by sea kayak.   

The Windermere 21 challenge event is run over a full day using our tandem sea kayaks.  You will only need a short training session from one of our expert instructors before being able to cruise with ease in one of these majestic boats, however this challenge is not to be underestimated and is often undertaken by groups and individuals looking to push themselves physically and mentally in order to raise money for a worthy cause.

The route:

Circumnavigate Lake Windermere amounting to 21 miles in distance.  By following the shoreline in either a clockwise or anti-clockwise direction this fantastic but testing kayaking challenge allows you to enjoy tremendous Lake District views from the best seat in the house.  You will be supported by our staff every paddle stroke of the way and benefit from their local knowledge to give you an instructor/guide combination.
