A classic in the Keswick Mountain Festival sporting line-up; our Derwent Island open water swim series, this year consisting of 750 metre and 1500 metre options only. If you fancy something longer, check out our brand new Derwentwater Point to Point swim!

Enjoy swimming in the beautiful Derwent Water under the shadow of Catbells and views of Skiddaw and the Borrowdale valley.

Our 750 metre option is the ideal distance for those just starting out in the world of wild swimming and is a single lap that leads you out toward Derwent Island returning towards land. Open to ages12+.

Our 1500 metre option is great for the more experienced open water swimmer and is one lap of Derwent Island.
