Total Adventure's sister company, Windermere Canoe and Kayak, have 2 locations on Windermere chosen for their access to the quieter, calmer areas of the lake - perfect for beginners.

Also hire a SUP and take it with you for the day to explore other areas of the Lake District.
A fun Lake District experience that we offer for groups & families. Ascend a secluded, rocky mountain Ghyll (Stream) using your hands & feet. Jump in, scramble across, enjoy the breath-taking scenery. A must for adventurers! Gorge Scrambling is hard to describe in a way that does the activity justice. Until you have actually done it you will never quite understand what fun it can be!
In simple terms, you make your way up the mountainside with your group in a hidden gorge. The atmosphere and sounds in the gorge are quite different from anywhere else. you'll scramble up rocks, using your hands and feet, pause to catch your breath and look back to where you have come from - WOW! You may climb a waterfall (or hide behind one) step into a crystal clear pool, slide down a rock. Basically you make the activity up as you go along - with the help of an expert guide. Eventually, you'll emerge to some of the most stunning views in England!
This activity needs booking in advance, so please email us with your requirements. Minimum group size is 10 people.
Canoe hire is available from our sister company, Windermere Canoe Kayak, run by experienced staff and trained coaches. Canoes are great adventure boats especially for families.

Lake District Cycle Hire
Hire a bike from our shop in Windermere. We are just 2 minutes from the train and bus station. Choose from premium electric hybrids and MTBs - Hardtail MTBs - Children's bikes, trailers and tagalongs. Helmets are included as standard.
Explore the Lake District by bike, the best way to see it! Experience more than you can by foot in the same amount of time, but outside of the confines of the car or the tour bus, and away from the traffic!
At Total Adventure Bike Hire we choose to buy better equipment for you to hire. So our standard MTBs aren't just entry level bikes that you might normally find, this means your bike hire experience is enhanced by the equipment you are hiring.
Electric bikes - When it comes to eBikes we take this philosophy even further. Our Bosch equipped range of Scott eBikes are cherry picked from the range by us. Why? Only the most powerful motors Bosch produce and the longest range batteries Bosch make are featured on our eBikes, meaning these are the machines you need to crush the Lake District terrain and make the most of your day out on an electric bike.
Our Windermere shop is a hire point for bike hire. We also have venues at Bowness-on-Winderemere and Ambleside for bike hire, these two waterside venues also have paddlesport equipment to hire. Choose from canoes, kayaks and stand up paddle boards. For enquiries about hiring equipment for the water based activities please email email@example.com
