Ullswater Kayaking Tours in The Lake District

Kayaking in The Lake District

Ullswater, in the Lake District, is a great place to spend some time. It features islands, bays & beaches, and lots of scenery.

Paddling along in a kayak, enjoying the views and having a chat is the ideal activity to experience this beautiful part of the world.

Brilliant afternoon with Leigh.😊👍🛶 So well organised, never turned up for kayaking and been offered heated gloves. 😊👍. Very thorough briefing before going into the water and felt very comfortable paddling around Ullswater. Highly recommended 👌 👍

What a cracking morning Kayaking with my partner Neil. Leigh made the whole experience enjoyable with great use of local knowledge about the area As experienced kayakers we still learnt a few tips from Leigh and enjoyed the games which made the whole trip even more fun Leigh ensured we were safe and warm whilst we enjoyed the lake and it’s beautiful scenery We’d highly recommend booking whether your a beginner or experienced.

My wife and I along with my daughter and her husband had a fantastic time on Saturday 1 October kayaking on beautiful Ullswater. Leigh was a really good and knowledgeable tutor putting my wife at ease as she was terrified of capsizing having never been on the water before. A top bloke who really knew his stuff and made the whole experience memorable and something we will treasure for a long time. Thank you.

Leigh was truly lovely and made our experience really enjoyable. Despite having very limited kayaking experience he was really patient in showing us the ropes. The trip was not only about the kayaking but a good talking point for then and in the future. With the added benefit of not capsizing.
