We've teamed up with The Anderton Centre on Rivington Reservoir to offer Stand Up Paddleboarding (also known as SUP). Minibus transport from Manchester, equipment & guide included.
This adventure-packed day will start with a pick-up from Manchester, and then we'll drive over to The Anderton Centre where you'll meet the Stand-up Paddleboarding instructor and change into the correct safety equipment. (Changing rooms on site and all equipment is provided.) Then you're in the water for a morning of paddleboarding for beginners! (You will not require any experience but you will be required to be able to swim).
After drying down and grabbing some food (don't forget to pack sandwiches and snacks) we'll then start a short walk up to Rivington Pike for some fantastic views. From the pike we will head back down to the reservoir having a look around a hidden castle by the water the perfect way to finish off the day!
