Glide across the waters of the Lake District on a Derwentwater paddle boarding experience. Take in the views as you SUP in the Lake District
Take to the waters of the Lake District on one of our paddle boards (also known as SUPs). Admire the stunning scenery as we glide across the water.
We have two paddle boarding activities available: lake paddle boarding and river paddle boarding, so you choose your adventure. The activities take place on and around Derwentwater lake where you are surrounded by mountains and can spot fascinating wildlife during your trip. Derwentwater paddle boarding experience is the perfect adventure for families, couples, individuals and groups of friends.
Our qualified instructors are friendly and enthusiastic and we use only the best-quality equipment available to make sure you have the safest and most enjoyable time possible!
Minimum age to SUP in the Lake District: 7
Meet us at our Keswick Adventures headquarters just outside Keswick. You can park up in our parking area and we'll get you kitted out with your wetsuits and safety equipment to SUP in the Lake District.
Once the whole party is ready to go, we'll hop in the Keswick Adventures bus to drive to our starting point (please note, while Covid restrictions are in place, you may need to follow us in your own vehicle to the starting point). There, we learn the basics of paddle boarding before launching - it's not as easy as it looks!
Floating across the water, our instructors will point out interesting sights and wildlife while guiding you across the lake or river. Once we head back to shore, we’re back in the bus and back to HQ to change out of our wet kit.
The entire Derwentwater paddle boarding experience will last for approximately 3 hours, though this will differ depending on group size.
