Brown Howe Car Park - Coniston
Brown Howe, Coniston, Cumbria, LA12 8DW
Experience something truly unique. Join the team from Path to Adventure on a tranquil night-time canoe paddle on Coniston Water and enjoy the beauty and vastness of the night sky in the heart of the Lake District. Expect to meet like-minded people on this magical experience.
The guided canoe tour will start in the daylight, giving you time to get to grips with paddling the canoe.
Find a secluded bay, enjoy a hot brew, and watch as the sun sets over the magnificent mountain scenery.
Once the sun has set, we will continue our canoe journey, stopping along the way to look up and marvel at the stars, identify some constellations and see the beauty of the Milky Way.
This event is part of the Cumbria Dark Skies Festival – Autumn 2022.
