What our clients say...

"Giving longer paddles (of a high standard) made it easier. One to one instructions and directions were given when needed and helped me loads. Thanks heaps, was a thoroughly enjoyable course even in the weather conditions.”

"Well delivered course well equipped. Very high standard, good range of different kit available. Instructors tailored specific facets of activities to individual needs."

"Superb course and learnt a lot. Equipment very good and high standard.  Thanks for a great weekend."

"My boys really, really enjoyed your course. Peter is all fired up and planning canoe sailing. Knowing him he will probably have all kids at the club canoe sailing on the nearby lake this summer, and the boost in Paul’s self-belief is striking. So thank you very much".

"The day delivered exactly what I was after. Ian did very well given the constraint of operating within a single day. Ian was clearly aware of the intensity of 1:1 coaching and balanced the day well with short rest break in the middle. The choice of venue (Devil’s Bridge; Kirby Lonsdale on the Lune) was perfect. A great day. The coaching was delivered by Ian Adey who clearly has the technical skills and the personality."

"This was my first experience of a paddle course. It was very well run with Ben and Garry having lots of knowledge and experience. Ben and Garry were fantastic and adapted techniques to the different paddlers."

"Informative from the minute we started to move equipment to getting on the water. Equipment was excellent. Improved without being forced to."

Adventures for Groups or Families


Let Wild River show you the beauty of the Lake District from a different view point. We can help with adventures for a day or a week. We can deliver an adventure package tailored to your particular needs. At Wild River we don’t do standard sessions, we deliver tailor made high quality outdoor adventures and experiences.

Below are some of the amazing things you could do. We can do all of this or any variation you wish. Have a look around our website to get some ideas and contact us to plan your ideal holiday. We can tailor the course to you specific needs. We can even allow plans to change as you gain more knowledge or the weather dictates different options.

 


Two day introduction to Paddleboarding

Use the first day to journey and gather skills on Ullswater. Spend the second day paddling an easy stretch of one of our local rivers. Have a look at our Introduction to Stand Up Paddleboarding page to get a better idea.

Four day introduction to paddling in different craft. Try the full range of paddle activities including:

  • Tandem or solo canoe paddling
  • Paddle the length of Ullswater in our amazing sea kayaks
  • Master the basics of paddleboarding
  • Play on easy rapids in white water kayaks
  • Maybe include a ghyll scrambling adventure in one of Cumbria’s amazing hidden gorges

Weekend Paddling Adventure

Learn to paddle white water kayaks and tackle the rapids of the rivers of Cumbria. This option is best done in the autumn and spring when we are more likely to get enough rain to allow the rivers to flow well. We can even do this in the winter - the drysuits we provide will keep you toasty warm all year round.


Sea Kayak Experiences or Coaching

Spend as long as you want with our incredible sea kayaker Fi Corfe. Fi is one of a very small number of people to have sea kayaked around the north and south islands of New Zealand as well as Cape Horn.

Spend a day or two learning from her or just being guided on the lakes or tidal estuaries of Cumbria. This activity is best done in the spring and summer.


Canoe Skills

Develop the graceful skills of canoe paddling in some of the most beautiful venues in Britain. Paddle the large expanses of open water with ease or navigate a river journey through the sandstone gorges of the river Eden.

Perhaps include an overnight camp on a quiet beach or river bank. Sleep under the stars using our canoe tarps as shelter.  This can be done all year round.

  • Whatever boat or board is right for your chosen activity
