Our Explore Cragside tours are the perfect way to discover this stunning landscape from the water, with the knowledge and experience of a professional paddlesports guide who accompanies you throughout. Explore the wildlife around the lake, learn a little about the history of the estate and discover how the lake provided the backbone of Lord Armstrong's hydro-engineering innovations, and still provides clean energy for the estate to this day.
This tour takes place in a mix of solo and tandem sit-on kayaks. Solo kayaks are for one adult, tandem kayaks are for two adults or an adult and child. We will always prioritise the tandems for adults with younger children. Explore Cragside tours are suitable for adults and accompanied children age 7+. Each tour lasts 90 minutes, with around 1 hour spent on the water.
Will I get wet?
You will get a wet bottom and a little bit splashed on the tour so we recommend wearing lightweight, quick drying clothes and a waterproof coat. Although it is very unlikely you will enter the water, we recommend a spare change of clothes, spare footwear and a towel just in case.
