💥 The most popular activity in the Lakes! 💥

It’s time to get wet! Ghyll scrambling in the Lake District (or gorge scrambling) involves scrambling directly up a mountain river, but in the water rather than by taking the more traditional (and dull!) path along the side!

We offer 3 different gorge scrambling trips. Click the links below 👇  for more information, prices and pictures of what to expect on each of the trips:

You’ll be amazed how quickly the water stops feeling cold as you climb over trees, boulders, up rocky steps and even climb waterfalls! We’ll make sure that we find you some plunge pools and slides too, to ensure that you go home with not a patch of dry clothing!

We’ll kit you out in wetsuits and provide all the safety equipment that you need to ensure that you have an exhilarating but safe time taking on a classic gorge scramble. All the obstacles can be bypassed if they don’t appeal to you and you’ll be wearing a buoyancy aid to keep you afloat, so you don’t need to be a strong swimmer.

Come ghyll scrambling in the Lake District with us – it is great for groups and is also a great 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 abseilingrock climbingscrambling, or canyoning.

Ghyll scrambling in the Lake District is also perfect for Hen and Stag parties and is brilliant as part of a team building day for corporate clients.

Had an excellent time canyoning with Si! Booked by my partner who is much more adventurous than me but we both had an amazing time. There was one jump I was too scared to do and Si made an adjustment allowing me to continue with the journey in a way I felt comfortable. If you're thinking about booking this but are scared to take the plunge, my advice is go for it!!

We had brilliant fun doing the ghyll scrambling with Si this morning at Stickle Ghyll. We were really well kitted out so soon forgot about the damp, chilly morning and had a fantastic time with lots of laughs and challenges along the way. The kids are already planning for when they can do their next ghyll scrambling adventure!

My husband had an awesome afternoon Ghyll Scrambling in Coniston. Our son bought him a voucher for his birthday and I've never seen him grin so much when he came home wet and exhausted. I would highly recommend

Ghyll scrambling with Steve was a great experience! Our original location was changed last minute due weather conditions but Steve made sure we could still complete our booking at another location. Would definitely recommend and will be booking again! Thanks again for Steve and the team 😁
