There are some of us that long for adventure and love that rush of adrenaline taking over. For those people, there are plenty of activities in the Lakes District. So whether you're looking to bike up a fell or go out on the water, the Lakes cater to all comers.
So here are some places for the more adventurous among us:
Coniston Boating Centre
Although the name suggests water activities, there are many more activities on offer here. Situated near the fifth largest lake (4.0 square kilometres) in the Lake District, the Coniston Boating Centre offers great outdoor activities to suit your desires. If you fancy getting out onto the water, you are able to hire a range of watercraft (such as Canoes, Kayaks and motor boats) for your preference. If you’re built more for land activity why not give archery or rifling a try. Wanting get wet and climb waterfalls, then try gorge scrambling. The world really is your oyster.
Go Ape Grizedale Forest
Looking for a way to leave the ground for a while, then Go Ape lets you experience the perspective of the birds. Enjoy a treetop adventure as you make your way across the douglas firs of Grizedale Forest. The biggest attraction is the ‘zip trekking adventure’ which take you over seven tandem zip lines across 3KM. You can also make a day of it and try out the cafe and walking trails to bring you back to earth.
