This involves starting our Wild Swim at the beautiful Fell foot park at the bottom of Windermere and involves a swim down the lake towards the river Kent.  Previous swimmers who have taken a guided swim are always amazed at the scenery and wildlife. If you are really lucky, you might also see the old steam train pass through the trees at the side of the lake on it journey to Lakeside – quite an impressive sight!

We start our morning with a quick briefing about the plan for the morning. Once everyone is suited and booted we will head on our journey from Fell Foot Park. The Swim distance can be tailored to the swimmers and there are options of 1500m to 2500m. Tow floats will be provided, the depth varies along the swim and there are plenty of options to stand or tread water with your tow float if you fancy a rest from swimming :-)
