This swim tour will showcase the varied landscapes which make up the English Lake District World Heritage Site.
Arriving in Cumbria on Friday evening, our Compass Challenge starts in the north the following morning, swimming at dawn among the many islands of Derwentwater, after a bacon buttie breakfast (with veggie alternatives, of course!) we head east to the pretty shores of Ullswater.
Our destination is Coniston in the south of the county for the penultimate swim of the day; we end the day in the mysterious depths of Wastwater to the west. Once finished the swims we will relax and enjoy the scenery with a well-earned barbecue with Cumberland sausage, chicken kebab, and a bottle of locally brewed beer.
While there is no swimming allocated for the final day, Sunday Lunch will be the order of the day at one of Keswick's finest restaurants. Here we will be able to catch up and reminisce on the previous day's achievements, before setting off home.
There are only ten places on this tour, and these will fill up quickly, so get in touch soon to avoid disappointment.
