Kielder Water is the largest man-made lake in northern Europe with a surface area of over 11 square kilometres and enough water to give everyone on the planet about seven gallons of water.

Water activities such as canoeing, sailing, and water skiing are provided (seasonally) by professional clubs and Calvert Kielder. Each of these activities must be pre-booked in advance. To avoid disappointment, please call the club based activity provider direct to pre-book your activity before arrival.
