With the launch of stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) Talkin Adventures is looking to instruct small groups in a secure hygienic environment, away from the busy crowds of the Lake District. Independent Adventure’s experienced staff, working at the Talkin Tarn venue, are fully qualified to instruct groups in their newest activity, in addition to canoeing, kayaking, archery, and orienteering.

Private SUP sessions can be arranged for groups of up to 5 participants. At the moment the activity can only be offered for small groups and families. The Talkin Adventures team look forward to opening up fully, in the near future, as this activity will be a great addition to hen parties, stag events and team away days. SUP can be incorporated with other activities at Talkin Tarn, or brought to other venues for convenience.
