Events at Whinlatter

Whinlatter has a programme of events throughout the year from family events run by the ranger team to large scale sporting events including adventure races, trail runs and car rallies.

Visiting the forest through the year gives you a host of different sights and sounds, from the changing colours of the trees, to the different wildlife you can see.

In addition to the specific events on the calendar below, there are more activities you can get involved with all year round, organised by different businesses in and around the forest sites.

If you'd like to try your hand at some bushcraft skills, take a look at the Keswick Canoe and Bushcraft website for booking and information.

Buggyfit is the ultimate outdoor excersise class for mums and their babies & toddlers.  Every Wednesday 1.15 - 2.15pm.  Contact Jen Wislon Fitness to book your place.

Nic's Nordic Walks provides a fantastic way to improve our fitness on our forest trails, maximising the health benefits of getting outdoors.

Classrooms in the Forest offer ranger-led programmes for schools, woodland themed birthday parties for children and Wild Women forest skills sessions for over 16year olds.
