“Ullswater is an ideal destination for canoeing enthusiasts with its breathtaking scenery“

An exciting new leaflet about canoeing on Ullswater has been produced by Eden Rivers Trust, in partnership with Canoe England, as part of its Discover Eden Heritage Lottery Funded Project.

Ullswater Canoe Trail LeafletThe Ullswater Canoe Trail enables locals and visitors to canoe through the breathtaking scenery of Ullswater while also learning more about the area. The leaflet explains where visitors can hire canoes, park vehicles and launch boats.  It identifies a number of short canoeing trips, as well as one day trips and two day trips. It also provides information about campsites, accommodation and other facilities available in the area. It facilitates an enjoyable and informative experience, and provides a fantastic addition to the leisure opportunities available on Ullswater.

Joanne Backshall, Conservation Officer for the Eden Rivers Trust, said: “Ullswater is an ideal destination for canoeing enthusiasts with its breathtaking scenery. The canoe trail has been designed specifically for paddlesport enthusiasts of all ages and abilities to help make their visit easier and more informative.”

The trail, printed on waterproof paper, is in an easy to use concertina style format, with a detailed map on one side and the corresponding text on the other.  It is available from Eden Rivers Trust, Tourist Information Offices and canoe hire shops and retailers at a price of £2.00.
