Activities in Lakeland 

Go Big or Go Home

Sports for people who are all "up for it". Only buy these adventure products if all your team members are totally committed and know whats coming. These are more committing than our regular activities, and your safety and enjoyment are dependent on your outlook, abilities and fitness.

Note: Buying this as a surprise is not recommended (nothing ruins a Stag-Do than a petrified Stag backing out of a days activity.) 

A full day of adventure starting with a training abseil, so everyone knows the kit and technique before the noise of the ghyll blots out the ability to hear instructions.

Then a short walk to the exciting bit of the ghyll, where different challenges are faced, some abseiled and some jumped. Jumping where and when instructed is compulsory, otherwise you are stuck!
We have other awesome ghylls with more options, if your team would appreciate more choices.

Ultra Caving in 'The Dales' takes you to the meaty bits of Long Churn Cave, with some tight squeezes (slightly wider than a wheelie bin and with the world on top of you…), pitch black challenges (blacker than the ace of spades) and a waterfall decent. Challenging emotionally and physically, can you handle it?!

The end of the rope is a long way away when you are at the top of the quarry, 100 meters in fact. The hardest bit is at the top where you can easily back out. Clench those butt cheeks and take a deep breath as you lean backwards over the edge as you pass the point of no return.  Once you start there is no way back up.
