Distant Horizons provide family friendly outdoor activities in the beautiful Lake District.

Anyone from the age of 4 up can get involved. All technical equipment is provided.

Some of the family activities they do include:

  • Explore the Lake District by Water with an organised Kayak or Canoe tour.
  • Have a go at raft building. How far will your family’s raft make it?
  • Why not have a go at Gorge Walking, or Ghyll Scrambling as it is known in these parts. This is what we did with Distant Horizons.
  • Test your metal with some cliff jumping or abseiling.
  • The Lake District is a perfect place for a but of Rock Climbing.
  • If the weather is too bad, you can also do indoor climbing and abseiling.
  • Want to keep your feet firmly on the ground? You can also do family archery with Distant Horizons.
  • …or how about crate stacking? How high can your family build a tower before it topples over.


And if you’ve not found a place to stay in the Lake District, Distant Horizons also do accommodation and activity packages.

Here’s a video from Distant Horizons showing some of their family activities.

We went out Gorge Walking with Distant Horizons. They were really good. Distant Horizons gets the thumbs up from us.
