River Tubing in the heart of the Peak District.

Not heard of Tubing before? We can promise that you’re in for a treat. This is one of the best water sports in the Peak District.

Jump into your custom ‘built for the river’ tube and take float down the lower section of the beautiful Peak District river rafting run.

During your 90 minute float you’re going to navigate your way through many twists and turns of the River Derwent. You sit in the tubes with your bum in the water, so you’ll resemble a group of turtles on their backs. Just go with it – you’ll love it.

After messing about and pushing each other out of the tubes, and belly laughing at members of your group who can’t steer and spend much of their time bouncing off rocks, it’s time to take on the rapids in style. We say in style, but what we actually mean is you’re going to be bounced down the river like rubber ducks.

This activity is at it’s best when there’s a decent group of you all working the river and rapids together – and it’s hilarious.

Your River Guide (kayak based) will give you the low down to safely navigate your way downstream, then it’s over to you.

Manoeuvring your tube around the river is actually quite possible. The specifically designed neoprene hand paddles are effective even in the white stuff. You wear them on your hands to steer, so skill plays it’s part here too. This is water sports in the Peak District like you’ve never seen them before.

After the activity we’ll take you back to the starting point in our mini bus.

All the fun with no drama

Massive thanks to Greg and HDK for organising a great stag weekend. Greg was easy to deal with, understood our needs and made everything seamless from the accommodation to the activities and pub crawl. Highly recommended!

My immense thanks to Greg and Hard Days Knight for organising me a fantastic stag do 25-27 March 2022. Unlike some of the national stag do agencies, HDK offer a personal service and really know the detail of all of the activities they offer and on the accomodation options. Greg was an absolute pleasure to deal with, nothing was too much and no question too silly. I really felt assured that I was in great hands with someone who put my mind at rest that they knew what they were doing, and the proof really was in the pudding, as all 15 of my group had a fantastic time.
