Ghyll Scrambling Experience (Gorge Walking)

Esk Gorge - The Ultimate Lakeland Ghyll

Sunday 26th May 2024


Biiiig jumps into amazing pools, all in an amazing setting. This gorge kicks off with a 1 hour walk along the valley floor, we get kitted up and then the fun starts. Esk Gorge really is the ultimate ghyll scrambling experience if you want a full day of adventure and enjoy (optional) big jumps. We'll move from pot to pot, showing you the best places to launch from, as well as having a meander through the river to make progress. 


4-6 Hour Experience depending on group size (plus kitting up and getting changed time), Suitable for Ages 10+. All under 18's must be supervised by an Adult. Groups size of 12 maximum. Please be aware this experience involves walking for about 1 hour, carrying your ghyll kit (large rucksack required). Private Experiences also available. 


Kit List, meet location and other info provided upon booking. All safety equipment is provided and we'll send you home with a few photos too! 


Water Level Cancellation or Postponement

We get loads of rain here in the Lake District, which makes spending time in the ghyll a great activity to do as you’re going to get soaked anyway! Unfortunately however, sometimes we can have too much rain and this may make the ghyll dangerous to be in. This could mean we may be forced to delay our entry to the ghyll by a few hours, or possibly exclude smaller humans from the activity all together.

It has also been known for the ghylls to have too little water in for us to be able to complete a full experience.


We will always endeavour to make postponements or cancellations in advance of the meet time, however sometimes we just have to get to the ghyll to see the situatin before making this call. As such, sometimes we may inconvenience you, but please understand firstly, we can’t control the weather and secondly, we want you to have the best, safest and most fun experience with us you can.
