We're a mature couple and did this together with another younger group of 8. It was a great experience, very exhilarating, scary and a real sense of achievement. Dom, that guided us was brilliant. He gave clear instructions and encouraged us all to have a go at the more scary bits. It was very well organised. I would throughly recommend... More

We booked a ghyll scramble to help celebrate my nephews birthday. The staff were really friendly and put everyone at ease before being kitted out and driven to the ghyll for our trip. The trip down the stream was a bit extreme in places but was well managed and a great deal of fun. Will certainly be back to try... More

When we turned up half... More

Fantastic day out for my stag do weekend in Keswick. The instructors were great fun and Al spent an hour searching for my glasses under water after I dropped them during the ghyll scramble. The via ferrata was simply spectacular and really got the heart pumping! Will definitely be back, thank you!
