💥 Do you dare to lean back over the edge?! 💥

Come and test your nerve by abseiling down a vertical wall of slate in an amazing atmospheric location. We’ll provide all the safety gear, coaching and support that you need to get you over the edge and we’re certain that once you’ve been down once, you’ll be addicted and keen for loads more goes!

Abseiling in the Lake District is great fun for groups and is also a really good way of tiring out the kids. It works really well as a half-day session, enabling you to create your perfect multi-activity day by marrying this activity up with half a day of rock climbingscramblinggorge scrambling (aka. ghyll scrambling) or canyoning.

Abseiling is also perfect for Hen and Stag parties and is brilliant as part of a team building day https://lakedistrictactivities.co.uk/adventure-days/canyoning/of Lake District activities for corporate clients.

We abseil close to Coniston. You will be sent full details on where to meet when you book.

We also have a venue that is in the north Lakes, close to Keswick. If you would like to book this venue instead then please contact us and we will check availablity for you.

Anyone aged 8 and above.

If you have young kids who are nervous, then please let us know by contacting us and we can check availability to take you to a more friendly venue.

Any group members under the age of 18 must be accompanied by their parent(s) or legal guardian. Sorry but uncles, aunties, grandparents, family friends etc are not classed as legal guardians.

The highest abseil is roughly 45m.

If you have young kids who are nervous, then please let us know by contacting us and we can check availability to take you to a more friendly venue, where the abseil is about 10m.

Fitness isn't that important as abseiling is all downhill! There is however a scramble up some rocks to get back to the top. This takes about 5 minutes and is relatively steep.

You don't need any experience - we'll teach you how to abseil and support you all the way.

There is no weight limit but we do have a maximum waist and chest size, as our safety kit will not fit a person larger than this. These sizes follow.

Maximum waist size: 150cm
Maximum chest size: 152cm

If you have any concerns, please contact us.

We will share a kit list with you when you book, but all you really need are warm and waterproof ‘outdoor’ clothes and footwear. We will provide all safety equipment such as harnesses and helmets.

If you have them (and if you think you're the type of person who is going to want to go fast!) bring a tough pair of gloves (gardening gloves work well).

We take loads of photos and we share them with you for free.

They start at either 9am or 1pm and last for 3 hours. For availability, click the blue 'Book Now / Check Availability' button above.

Canyoning in Esk Gorge Canyoning in Esk Gorge was the most exciting thing I’ve done all year. A great mixture of jumps and climbing up waterfalls, with a great competent instructor. I couldn’t recommend enough.
