What you'll do
Whichever way you journey to Glenridding you'll notice well before arrival why we live and paddle around this corner of the Lake District. The centre itself is located just off the main through road of the little village. The first thing we'll do is fit the boat to you. This is followed by a quick brief on what to do, then it's on the water. There are miles of beautiful scenery all along Ullswater. Bays and beaches aplenty. there's certainly a few favourites of both that we'll pass but there's no set route, lunchtime stop or furthest out point. I'll show you some really nice walks, camping places and other possible picnic locations for your future travels if you decide to return to the area. We'll find a nice picnic spot when we're ready, enjoy good food, then paddle ourselves home again. Most people don't even get their shoes wet on our trips, but if you want them there are changing rooms at the centre.
Hi, I'm Leigh from ' Tall Bloke Adventures'. I'm lucky enough to have had the opportunity to gain 30 years of experience in Sea Kayaking around the world. Scotland, The Maldives, Greece, Spain, New Zealand, Gozo and other places have been paddled and enjoyed. The ethos is always the same. Experience a nice day, have a chat, pass on a bit of knowledge to, and learn from, people looking for a similar venture.
Picnic. Please provide any dietary restrictions.
