Canoeing Explore new shores

Bendrigg Trust Canoeing

We are lucky to have a variety of canoeing sites within easy reach of Bendrigg offering different experiences. From sheltered journeys along the local canal, to open water paddles on Killington reservoir or to the islands on Windermere, there is something for all abilities and weathers! Rafted canoeing offers a safe introduction to water activities by constructing a raft from two large open canoes and purpose built poles and straps. Not only does this present a fantastic team building opportunity but it also gives a very stable platform for people to access and enjoy the pleasures of being on the water. For the more able, a skills session using single canoes or kayaks can present the chance to learn more about the basics of water sports, opening the way to further develop skills. As with all of our activities, canoeing is fully accessible thanks to our specialist equipment and portable hoists which can be taken to the lake shore or canal side.
