Step off the river bank into a perfect river pool and float downstream among the rushes on this tranquil stretch of river and emerge into the lake to explore the islands ahead. We run this swim in small groups so that we can fully appreciate the Wild Swimming experience… Don’t worry about speed or style just soak up your environment, both above and below the water.
Your guides are all experienced open water swimmers and qualified lifeguards, keen to share their extensive knowledge of the local area give swimming tips to enhance your outdoor swimming experience.
Swim Ability & Fitness Level: The Poet’s Punt is perfect for beginners & intermediate outdoor swimmers. For this wild swim journey the emphasis is on exploring and enjoying the environment, but you do need to be a competent swimmer who can swim 1,000m in a pool, front-crawl or breaststroke.
Brief Itinerary: We meet at 08.45 at our Lake venue near Ambleside, Lake District. Full details will be emailed after booking. Non- swimming friends are welcome to explore the shore paths and trails around this beautiful area while we take our swim.
