Adventure Days

Do you want to experience the Lake District on a whole new level? What about a frog's eye view! There is no better way to explore the Lake District than our wild swimming adventure days.  Join our monthly group swim events that take place in different locations each month. Our small groups are welcoming of all abilities, providing you have some prior wild swimming experience. Breaststroke and treading water are key skills for these events. Not very fast? Don't worry, neither are we! Adventure days are about getting out and enjoying the water not setting any records. On an adventure swim day we usually walk between locations averaging 6-8km of undulating walking with two or three swims or dips along the way.
