You will be guided by an on-duty Lake Ranger to experience the National Park by water, for a trip that combines incredible views and a real life adventure. Learn about the vital tasks we carry out every day on the lake and the fascinating ecology, wildlife and history of Windermere. Do you know how Windermere was actually formed? Would you be interested to learn who has lived on the islands? Well, we’ll tell you the answers to these questions and even more by sharing some fascinating Lake District secrets along the way. Be prepared to really step into the Ranger boots and learn to drive the boat yourself and cruise around the beautiful lake. We will be teaching you some vital skills on board and you will even have to work together to complete a successful rescue mission. During the adventures on board we’ll take a break to enjoy a fantastic locally sourced picnic prepared by the expert team at The Gaddum. Simply sit back and enjoy the stunning surroundings of the UK’s newest UNESCO World Heritage Site before we start the engines again and head off on the next leg of the adventure.
I'm a National Park Lake Ranger in the Lake District. My day job is to patrol Lake Windermere by boat. You will join me out on patrol during this unique experience! I've been a National Park Ranger for 7 years and know the Lake District on the back of my hand. Join me as I show you the Lake District as you have never seen before! The team and I have created a great fun and friendly experience which involves learning some vital skills as well as some little known amazing facts about Windermere. Driving the Ranger boat on a rescue mission is another highlight certainly one to tell your friends!
