Ghyll Scrambling 

A natural playground that brings out the child in everyone! 

Ghyll Scrambling, Gorge Walking and Canyoning are all activities in a similar environment.

Ghyll is the Cumbrian word for a high mountain steam, climbing through them is an exhilarating way of interacting with the mountain environment.

We have wetter and dryer ghyll’s, we also have flatter and steeper ghyll's, ghyll’s you jump into and ones you climb with ropes and harnesses. There is a level of adventure to suit almost every family, stag group or educational group.

Full on Ghyll Scrambling (whole day) 

You’ll need to borrow a rucksack for your lunch and spare clothes, oh and a harness and helmet, because with a whole day we can get into the meaty bit of Stickle Ghyll.

Activity Details and Pricing 

Ghyll Scrambling Langdale

  A stunning view opens up behind, as you focus on navigating between the boulders and water challenges. Lots of action and challenges for groups of all ages. Conveniently it has a path running up the side, so the tired and nervous have a way to see the group without having to do the whole Ghyll.

Being drier and more mountainous we find this is best done in normal clothes and a waterproof jacket. There are still the options to get very wet

Great for all ages
Lots of opportunities to work together and have a laugh

Allow 3 hours £38.50 

Ghyll Scrambling Coniston

Church Beck in Coniston is one of the liveliest and most interactive Ghylls we use, with a lot of steep and deep features to climb over and jump into. Its chillier than the open landscape of Langdale Ghyll Scrambling, swapping less sun and views for faster water and a truly unique water carved environment.

Because it involves frequently getting wet we build wetsuit hire into the price.

A great fun packed adventure for more confident children and adults.

Available for instant booking 

Allow 3 hours £51.60

Full Day Ghyll Langdale 

The longer day lets us get to the upper mountainous play spots. Involves roped climbing and some airy scrambling, high on the mountain side.

Bring your lunch to eat with an amazing view before putting on a harness for waterfall rock climbing.

Available for instant book

allow 6 hours £52.50

Canyoning Coniston

For the confident adventurer - sections must be jumped or abseiled. Having said that leaping into narrow slots of deep water is exhilarating.

Canyoning starts with an abseiling lesson to get you going and able to manage your own ropes and equipment, before its too noisy to explain. Only for adventurous older teenagers and adults. Everyone must be confident - there isn’t an easy way out

Minimum age 16 years 

allow 6 hours £81.00

Aquaseiling Coniston

Aquaseiling is Abseiling but with the added thrill and challenge of doing it in the waterfalls above Coniston village. 

The session beings with a steep walk up into the Coppermines before descending a selection of different waterfalls overlooking the Coniston valley.
