• Water-based activities

    The Lodge at Amber Lakes is surrounded by lake, as far as the eye can see and with a site so big, that’s exclusively yours for the day, why not take advantage of the open water and host your activities here. Moving to the water is not for the faint hearted as there is a chance of your teams getting wet, however the high energy nature coupled with the closeness with nature allows for an unforgettable experience.

    We have a range of activities that work well on the water but the most popular are as follows:

    Sailing and Fishing

    Wraysbury has an almost mythical reputation when it comes to both fishing and sailing having trained previous Olympic gold medallist and being the home to carp team England.

    Dragon Boat Racing
    This is a competitive, adrenaline filled racing challenge which involves the group being split into a number of teams. The teams then get the chance to practise on the river before competing in races in a heat format to determine an overall winner. This is only available during the summer months.

    Raft building
    This traditional team-building challenge is based on solving cryptic clues in order to win parts of the raft equipment that allow teams to start building. The challenge then becomes much more logistical and team members have to work well together to design the most buoyant raft in order to sail across the lake to victory.

    Additional activities
    We are very lucky at Amber Lakes to be based next door to the largest aqua park in Europe which can offer a range of additional activities such as water skiing, paddle boarding, zip wiring and wake surfing. For a true adrenaline hit, and based just 5 minutes from Amber Lakes, this is the perfect addition to the site.
