About the event

Don't waste your mornings in bed. Join me on this amazing Early Riser swim and catch the sun as it rises over stunning Lake District scenery.

Morning is my favourite time to swim. Because few people are out and about, the tranquillity is palpable. Wildlife is still active, the water is undisturbed, and you really feel like you're away from all habitation.

We start with a guided nature walk down to Buttermere lake (less than a mile) and swim from a secluded beach. The swim is head-up breaststroke and your time in the water is as long or short as you like, within reason. Afterwards we make our way back to the village for breakfast in a local cafe (breakfast is not included in the price).

To take part you should have prior outdoor swimming experience and be comfortable swimming out of your depth. Skins and wetsuit are welcome. Total walk distance is 3 miles on an undulating compacted stone track.
