Have you got what it takes to be awarded the title of ‘Lakeland Legend’  Come and find out! 💪

The Lakeland Legend challenge is a full day of adventure and extreme challenges, all based in and around a breathtaking and incredibly atmospheric old slate mine in heart of the Lake District.

3 amazing, tough and vertigo inducing activities await you, that will test your bravery, strength and endurance!

Face your fears and come and find out how hard you can push your limits!

This day is no push-over, so be warned! We don’t give you the title of Lakeland Legend for nothing, you know!

Here are your challenges. Which one is going to test you the most?

  • Take on a 50m vertical abseil. Steep and committing!
  • Get your arms working on a 50m tyrolean traverse/zip line, 60m above the floor – will you trust the rope and kick back off the edge?
  • Test the cardio, and your head for heights on 200 vertical meters of Grade 2 rock scrambling from valley level to summit height. Big exposure and lung-busting action!

On the Lakeland Legend Challenge your skills and strength will be put to the test. Only those with the nerve and bravery to stand up to everything that we throw at you will make it. Are you one of the chosen few?

The Lakeland Legend Challenge is based close to Coniston. You will be sent full details on where to meet when you book.

Anyone aged of 16 and above.

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.

It depends whether your 'fear' is just based on nerves that you can potentially overcome (and feel great for doing so!), or whether it is a deep-seated phobia, in which case this is probably not the best challenge for you.

The challenge involves 200m vertical ascent of tricky scrambling, so a relatively good level of fitness and being a naturally active person will definitely play to your advantage.

You don't need any prior experience.

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.

Yes. All elements of the challenge can be skipped if you don't like the look of them.

A kit list follows.

  • Trainers or walking boots
  • Waterproof jacket AND
  • Waterproof trousers
  • Warm layers (e.g., a fleece)
  • Warm hat and gloves if the forecast is cold
  • Sun cream if the forecast is for sun
  • Lunch and a drink
  • Gloves to abseil in
  • Leather gloves or well fitted gardening gloves work well
  • Hand sanitiser
  • Small rucksack

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

You can bring your Go Pro if you like, but we have to warn you that people losing cameras and Go Pros is extremely common - even when they are properly attached with the approved mounts. This probably happens at least once a week so we'd advise letting our instructors concentrate on the photography while you concentrate on having a great time!

The session starts at 10am and finishes at about 3-4pm. The exact finish time depends on how quick your group moves around the course.

Excellent day out Great day with Si and Bri extreme canyoning. Excellent equipment and a really well balanced day out in terms of action, walking and rest. Both the guys knew their stuff and I would highly recommend this to anyone who like a physical challenge.
