It was very windy today. The team were great and had a plan B arranged for us which was brilliant (and safer!).

Had a great experience Ghyll scrambling. Despite there being a rather large number of us (22 on a stag do) the guides were great throughout and clear experienced. Really enjoyed the experience and would book again.

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
