Outdoor activities in the Lake District
Days out in Cumbria
Distant Horizons provide a lot of family friendly indoor and outdoor activities in the Lake District. We gave them a go, and can highly recommend.
When we took the family canoeing on Windermere we used gear from Windermere Canoe Kayak. They also provide guided tours and tuition.
If you fancy trying climbing, abseiling, canoeing, or even the Lake's own Ghyll Scrambling, then West Lakes Adventure provide family guided activity days.
Hand feed giraffes. Hand feed penguins. See the big cats getting fed. A great family day out if you are in the Lake District.
Travel the Lake District and take in the spectacular scenery in style on the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway. There's a stop at the nearby Fisherground campsite.
