Llyn Padarn Lake, Snowdonia, Wales

This scenic lake, nestled in the depths of lush greenery and wildlife offers space for fun activities on the water, grab your canoes and work as a team to move around the lake. Head towards the southern bay of Llanberis and stop for a well deserved rest, enjoy food and drink in the village before heading back on the water.


Loch Torridon, Scotland

Kayaking along the shores of the loch offers a stunning panoramic view of the natural surroundings. Our advice is to have a break and jump on land for a light hike, exploring the perimeter of the loch gives you the opportunity to see the scenery from an alternative point.
