Mountains & Water Challenge

Our Mountains and Water team challenge is a fantastic event for those looking to push themselves physically in the great outdoors.  Starting at Pooley Bridge at the Eastern end of Ullswater you will paddle our fast and sleek sea kayaks (single and tandems available) to the opposite end of the lake at Glenridding some 12km away.  From there you will change into your mountain walking gear before setting off and on to the famous Striding Edge to the summit of Helvellyn 950m before descending back to Ullswater via Swirral Edge and Catstye Cam summit.  Once back at the edge of Ullswater you will swap the kayaks for canoes and paddle back to Pooley Bridge, but this time, as is often the case, the breeze will allow you to use our canoe sails to assist with your journey back to a well deserved celebration at the finish point.

This event is aimed at groups who would like to take on a new and exciting challenge.  Don't worry if you have never paddled a kayak or canoe before as we offer training to all participants, and only basic skills are required which are quickly picked up from the expert training and instruction we provide.

During this challenge event we provide technical equipment specialist clothing and footwear, lunch, snacks and drinks and you are fully supported by logistical and instructional staff the whole way ensuring your safety at all time.
