Head to the Hills ~ Swim the Lakes pioneered open water swimming as an experience in the Lake District and there is nowhere better.

The Lake District national park is a stunning area of the UK and one of the best places in the world for swimming outdoors. The water quality here is fabulous, the views above and under the water are inspiring.
Established in 2005 by Pete & Andrea Kelly we help swimmers explore this amazing landscape from a new and very different perspective through guided wild swims, from short guided swims to full adventure swimming breaks.

Swim the Lakes are the only specialist open water swimming company of its kind, providing courses, guided wild swims, adventure swims, a specialist wetsuit fitting service and an open water swim shop stuffed with tried & tested swimming accessories.
