The Three Lakes Challenge is designed to test your endurance to the limits. Paddle Great Britain as you take on Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake) in Wales, Windermere in England, and Loch Awe in Scotland.

Previous canoeing experience, careful planning and training is required. However, you can complete the challenge in your own time, and at your own pace.
