Where do we Paddle?


Derwentwater is undoubtably the Jewel in the crown for Stand Up Paddleboarding in the English Lakes. Its proximity to Keswick and easy access by the A66 make it an ideal destination for your first paddle board intro Lesson or SUP river tour.

Once you’ve learned the basics, you will have the skills necessary to  explore the numerous islands, secluded bays and river mouths at your leisure, keeping a watchful eye out for Otters, Kingfishers, Ospreys and other Lake Land wildlife.

Coniston Water

The Lake Districts third largest lake and probably its most famous. Home to Donald Campbell’s water speed record attempts and ultimate tragedy. Also as the inspiration for Arthur Ransome’s Swallows and Amazons story.

It’s a fantastic lake for stand up paddle boarding. Our launch site at Bank Ground farm is stunning, with views across the lake and up into the high fells and the Langdale pikes. The location is also home to the Swallows and Amazon Tea Rooms, where you can treat yourself to the best of everything Cumbrian from cream teas and cakes to lunch and evening meals.


Windermere is the largest Lake in the Lake District at 11 miles long. Which makes it a very popular with Stand Up Paddle Boarders from around the UK. All our SUP lessons and  Paddle Board River Tours depart from Waterhead, Ambleside.

The sheltered North end of  the Lake is perfect for learning to Paddle Board, with sheltered bays and easy access into the mouth of the River Brathay. The close proximity to Ambleside’s lake side pubs is a perfect location stand up paddle boarding followed by a pint, whats not to like?

River Derwent

Deriving its name from the Celtic word meaning ‘oak trees’, Lake District Paddleboarding’s river of choice runs from the shadow of the highest mountain in England, down the Borrowdale valley through ancient oak forests, all the way to the Irish sea.

Drawing on the experience and expertise of our instructors a SUP Safari River Tour enables you to become a part of the landscape and offers a unique and adrenaline fuelled perspective one of Britain’s most beautiful landscapes, naturally with a stop off for afternoon tea (or the pub) en route.
