Prime 25th Anniversary Celebrations
Thank you all for completing the initial poll on activity preference which has now allowed us to narrow down the choice of activity which we will be offering on the day.
We have decided to offering the following:
Friday Morning Options
Orienteering / Lakeland Walk
A Scenic Saunter / Lower and / or Higher Fell Walk.
The English Lake District is famous the world over for its beautiful combination of lakes and hills. The start of this event will have you immersed in the beautiful countryside and scenery, taking in the breath-taking views. It is an ideal way of seeing and exploring the best of the Lake District whilst taking part in an enjoyable and popular outdoor pursuit.
The walk will be guided by our expert instructors who will assist you along the way, pointing out areas of interest, nature, flora and fauna, scenic views and teaching you a few things about the Lake District areas.
The routes taken will be dependent on participants and weather. However we will aim to do a circular lower level walk incorporating Brant Fell and Scholl Knott. The walks will vary in distance but approx. 4-6 miles in total for each walk.
This will afford you a gentle introduction to water sports. Using 2 person Canadian Open Canoes and after some initial instruction on paddle strokes and water safety you will embark on your scenic paddle around Windermere and along the banks of the lake.
For extra stability and an added experience two canoes can be rafted together. With the wind in your sails, head off on your Lakeland journey.
We will launch the canoes from hotel jetty area or nearby public jetty
Friday Afternoon Options
Locally called Ghyll Scrambling, individuals are kitted out with wetsuit, buoyancy aids and helmets. Dive and swim in deep pools, fight against the current and aquaseil waterfalls.
Experience the adventure and explore stream beds in the magnificent environments. On the way there may be shallow pool to wade in and cascades to scramble up. If you don’t mind getting wet, this is an exhilarating and memorable team activity in rain or sunshine!
This will be done at Rydal Beck or Coniston – again, this will be subject to water levels and may be subject to change, located approx. 30 minutes drive from the hotel.
The perfect activity to begin your immersion into wilderness bush craft. Skills and topics covered can include an introduction to wild food, fire lighting, whittling, wood collection and preparation, ropes, string and knot tying and basic shelter building.
Participants will have the challenge of setting up camp and coming together to build an open fire to cook ‘wild delicacies’ such as nettle crisps, wild garlic flat breads and more; cooked over the (hopefully!) roaring fire.
Throughout the session there will be professional tuition and plenty of hands on experience in combination with clearly explained theory offering a fun, exciting and memorable event. This will either be done onsite or in the forest area location.
