Midsummer Madness

Experience the dawn and the dusk on one of Lakeland’s magical lakes

Once a year we offer the chance to see the sun rise and set over beautiful Derwentwater, with plenty of time to explore the area throughout the day. Imagine watching the sun rise over Walla Crag on the longest day of the year – then returning to watch it set over Cat Bells in the evening!

Our day starts early, at 4 am, so there’s a sausage sandwich and a hot drink waiting when you come out of the water. The evening swim is followed by a barbecue and a chance to sample the local beer by the shores of the lake.

There are only ten places on this tour, which is bound to be popular, so sign up now to avoid disappointment!
