Kayaking and Canoeing in the heart of the Peak District.

Getting out on the water is always a great laugh. It just works. Canoeing in Derbyshire alongside the gorgeous countryside is definitely one for the bucket list, so to experience it with a bunch of your mates is guaranteed fun.


Our kayaks are single cockpit style, and the canoes are Canadian/Open style – you can choose either for your group activity.


Get your wet suits on (that’s an activity in its’ own right) and go out as a group in your own kayaks. The activity is set in a gorgeous reservoir located in the heart of the Peak District. Great pub down the road too.

The water is approx 15 metres deep, so all the members of your group need to be water confident, although you don’t actually need to be able to swim as buoyancy aids are provided.


You can have races against each other, and we can add some extra challenges into the mix to ensure your session will go by in the blink of an eye.


You should certainly try canoeing in Derbyshire for a few hours of scenic fun.

All the fun with no drama

Early December we undertook a stag do booked through Hard Days Knight (HDK). Greg and the team there made the whole experience as easy and seamless as possible, helping us book amazing accommodation in Belper for 13 people and then finding us fantastic activities to fill the stag. Greg was a pleasure to wok with being friendly and understanding as our plans shifted around a bit and organised a shooting experience and pub tour for the stag both of which went down amazingly. The shooting experience as a fun filled morning of competition and laughs then the pub tour took us to some fantastic pubs, with great choices of beer and food. We'd all be happy to do the tour again and see what other pubs Greg would find for us! Through HDK we had transport to and from the activities sorted and it made the weekend flow so smoothly. I can't thank HDK enough for making it such an easy experience and I'd recommend them to anyone looking to organise a Stag or similar event. Thank you so much :)

First of all would love to say thank you to greg and the team from the start right up to the end they was always helpful and never to busy to help. We booked a stag weekend with them that consisted with a log cabin, quad biking and a zombie experience the whole group had an amazing time so much that we are now looking at doing it yearly (after convincing the wives). So Thank you to HDK for an amazing stag weekend that was planned by yourselves. Ben

I used HDK for my sisters hen do. If you want hassle free please and organisation, use Hard Days Knight was effortless . I just picked where and when and what activities we wanted and it was all organised for us. Very very helpful and accommodating couldn’t do enough, was a pleasure. Answered any questions kept in touch.
