Water activities will take place on Windermere, Britain’s largest lake where participants will have the opportunity to try out sailing, kayaking, bell boating and more. The Adventure day will make the most of the activities on offer in the Lake District including hill walking, mountain biking and geocaching. You’ll have an opportunity to see the beauty, wonder and history of the National Park during the Explore day where coaches will take groups on a day trip around the Lake District.
