Ghyll & SUP Day, Keswick


Our action packed Ghyll & SUP day kicks off with a trip to the Newlands Valley in Keswick to ghyll scramble down the very popular Stoneycroft ghyll. This fantastic ghyll scramble has an exciting mix of elements where you can slide, dive and drop as you descend through the water. Once you have dried off, the adventure will continue with a tranquil afternoon of paddle boarding on Derwentwater, where we can explore the islands or just splash around. Don’t worry if this is all new to you as you will always be under the watchful eye of one of our fantastic instructors, who are there to give you a day to remember!
