Ghyll Scrambling I Epic Canyon Adventures I
In the Lake District
There's one thing we have a lot of in the Lake District - Water! And there is one thing we definitely can't (so far) control - the weather! And that is why Ghyll Scrambling is the perfect activity to book in on your trip to the Lake District. There are a few different fun ghylls we can scramble here in the Lake District. Some will see you sliding down natural features or jumping into plunge pools, and others climbing up waterfalls. If you want to crank it up a level you can head for a session of 'Epic Canyoning'. This will see you abseil some huge waterfalls with the amazing fells as a backdrop as you go. Ghyll Scrambling and Canyoning makes the perfect stag or hen party activity, and if you want twice as much adventure, check out our Adventure Days.
Full technical kit will be provided (wetsuit, buoyancy aids, helmets, harnesses, ropes etc) but you will be required to bring shoes and underclothes for wearing in the ghyll, plus a dry change for after. A full kit list will be provided upon booking. Expect a bucket load of cool pics after your activity too!
