AnyoneCan are providing accessible climbing and canoeing experiences

Accessible Canoeing

Canoeing is a wonderful sport, it is super accessible, offers a great sensory experience and allows you to view the Lake District from a completely different perspective. It is magic being out on the water looking up at the majestic mountains and only using a paddle for power.

Our Canoeing is accessible for all to have a go. We stabilise our boats using either outriggers or rafting 2 together to ensure they won’t capsize on the water. We have a variety of seating for those who want extra back support or great postural support.

This will all be on-site for you to look at and decide the best option with our guidance. We also have a mobile hoist for those who need to use it. Our sessions are low ratios and very chilled, for those who prefer a calm environment.


Accessible Climbing

Climbing is a great opportunity to explore new heights and see the festival from up high.

We have multiple ways to make climbing inclusive which may be as simple as a quiet 1:1 climb, having someone climb alongside to assist or we have a pulley system for those who require extra help to scale the wall. We have various styles of climbing harnesses including seated harnesses.

Climbing is very addictive, a good workout and a great exercise for stretching as you reach for the holds. We can help as little and as much as requested! Not sure if it’s for you?

Come and find us on our stall and we can chat through how it would work.


Inclusive Guided rambles!

National Trust & Experience Community are hosting a guided, inclusive ramble on each day of the Festival – see options from 1 mile to 6 miles.

Book your spot in advance. These events are free to attend.

Accessible General Information


We are putting facilities in place to make the runs, hikes, and cycle sportives as accessible as possible.

If you would like to take part in other events, eg the Aquasphere swims, please contact us so we can discuss how we can best facilitate this.
