Swimhiking is a fun family activity. Older children can help plan the routes, navigate, load the swimsacs. Younger ones can just enjoy splashing about.

The Tadpole Round
The Tadpole is a swimhike that includes swims in Buttermere and Crummock Water in the Lake District. For those who get round a certificate awaits! Despite the name, the Round is actually quite tough and children (or indeed adults) who attempt it must be fully competent open water swimmers. Full details of the Tadpole Round are found on the FGR website.
