Keswick Adventures is one of the leading outdoor adventure companies in the Lake District. From our base just outside the beautiful town of Keswick, we run a huge range of outdoor activities including paddle boarding, ghyll scrambling, kayaking, and camping expeditions.

We are small, friendly team providing amazing experiences that are both safe and fun. We also care about supporting the local environment, which is why you’ll often seeing us clear up after ourselves and litter pick on many of our adventures - feel free to do your part and lend a hand!
