The Derwentwater Ring

Jetty to jetty to complete the 10km circuit

Entering the lake at the shore near Keswick, we'll swim past Friar's Crag, Lord's Island and Calfclose Bay to Ashness Gate, where we will have our first of many refreshment stops (as close as every 45 minutes). Our next jetty to visit is situated at Lodore, with High and Low Brandelhow coming before Hawes End. Swimming out of Derwent Bay we head for the most recent jetty to be added to the ring at Lingholm, onto Nichol End before finally touching base back at Keswick.

This is a rare chance to see the lake before the tourists arrive – our swim is carefully timed to avoid the launch and the ‘hot spots’.

Numbers are strictly limited on this tour, so please book soon to avoid being left out!
