Introduction to Open Water Swimming
at the Keswick Mountain Festival 2019

Keswick Mountain Festival Official Activity Provider

The ideal opportunity to try out one of the most exciting sports in the Lakes!

Swim Wild Side will be at the Keswick Mountain Festival on 18 & 19 May.

This is your chance to experience the delights of Open Water Swimming, and talk to us about the tours we offer throughout the summer.

Initially we’ll be taking groups of up to 12 people (aged 14+ years) for a short swim along to Friar’s Crag – it’s a shallow bay so no-one will be out of their depth. From here confident swimmers can venture further on to Lord's Island under the watchfull eye of our support kayakers.

There are only twelve places on each session, and these will fill up quickly, so get in touch soon to avoid disappointment.

Duration:
2 hours

Swimming Ability:
Must be able to swim 400m

Cost:
£35.00 per person

Times:
Saturday 18 June 09:00, 11:00, 13:30 & 15:30
