What to Expect

The Lake District and Northern Dales have a phenomenal range of mature rivers with countless high quality rapids that are perfect for the open canoe. We will aim to paddle a different section of river each day according to the group’s wants and needs.

Dependent on water levels we aim to use a combination of the following rivers: Lune, Eden, Leven, Kent, Tees, Swale, Esk, Ribble, Greta.

There is no set syllabus but during the week we there may be the opportunity to work on the following:

  • Consolidating Core Skills
  • Equipment & Outfitting Choices
  • Whitewater Skills for Grade II/III Rivers
  • Making Tactical Choices
  • Safe Group Paddling Strategies
  • Traditional Canoe Skills (Poling, Tracking & Lining)

This is aimed at paddlers with grade two experience looking to paddle new rivers and maybe try their hand at a little grade three.

We recommend Penrith as a central point giving us good access to the A66 / M6 Corridors. We normally put everyone in touch beforehand to give you the option to share lifts and book somewhere communal. We’ve got a few recommendations too.
