Our local partners at Glaramara, provide an exciting range of adventure activities. These activities can be booked and paid for through us, or arranged directly with the provider.
You are of course also welcome to find your own activity providers, or bring your own equipment (please contact us in advance to discuss storage requirements) and provide your own instruction. You can launch small watercraft, such as kayaks, canoes, and paddleboards, from the shingle lake-shore beach opposite our driveway.
