Kielder Water Activities

Since Kielder Water is the largest man-made lake in northern Europe it attracts many for water activities.

Water activities such as canoeing, sailing, and water skiing are provided (seasonally) by professional clubs and Calvert Trust Kielder. Each of these activities must be pre-booked in advance. To avoid disappointment, please call the club based activity provider direct to pre-book your activity before arrival.

If you have your own equipment, you must adhere to the rules and requirements before taking to the water and again, details must be checked in advance of your visit. The rules and regulations of Kielder Water are available to download here or from any of the visitor centres.

There are only two water skiers allowed on at one time so it is best to call and book space. Please contact Leaplish Waterside Park on 01434 251 000 for the rules and regulations, any questions, and the times visitors are allowed on the water.
