Experienced Instructors/Referees to ensure your enjoyment and safety
Wetsuit hire and helmets
Located in pretty Peak District countryside
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 bucketlist, 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 one for your group activity.
Get your wet suits on (that’s an activity in its’ own right) and go out as a group with your personal instructor in his own kayak. 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 be water confident, although you don’t actually need to be able to swim as buoyancy aids are provided.
We’ll teach you how to get to grips with the kayaks/canoes, including advice on paddling and basic boat movement. If you’re game enough you’ll learn the capsize drill. You know, that bit where you get to try and roll over while staying in your seat. Don’t worry though – it’s not essential if you don’t fancy that bit.
We’ll get you doing 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.
Visited here last weekend, superb place very spacious, amazing property's on offer lovely views. Activities on offer are vast and there's so much to do we opted for karting and shooting and it didn't disappoint. We spent hours using the full sized pool table and the bedrooms were lovely and clean, if you want an all inclusive weekend away whether it's a stag do or any other gathering then this is ideal and when there's up to 12 people or even less if represents great value for money for what you get, thanks guys. James and the lads.
We went through Greg from HDK to help us organise a stag do for 13 lads in the Peak District. Straight from the off Greg was extremely accommodating and friendly, happy to help with all (a lot) of our questions. The activity day was a real highlight and exceeded my expectations, so a massive thank you Greg and the team for booking that and to all the guys who ran the activities. Brilliant all round.

Amazing service from Greg at HDK. The snow thwarted our hen do plans at the last minute but Greg very diligently found us an alternative activity for no extra charge. He was communicative and available to talk whenever was needed and I couldn’t have asked for a better service! 10/10 would recommend. Emma G.
