Moonlit canoeing

This unique way of experiencing the lake is a must-do for stargazers and adventurers alike. With the moon and stars lighting up the fells and shimmering off the water, this is an unforgettable activity suitable for all ages. After exploring the lake and counting the stars, we head back to the shore for a beach fire, hot chocolate and toasted marshmallows.
