Wet and wild guided gorge walking
sessions in The Lakes and Dales

Discover hidden treasures in the depths of this specials regions gorges and waterfalls – on a Lake District gorge walking session – ascending them by gorge walking against the flow – with ample time for leaping into the many plunge pools en route.

Gorge Walking and Ghyll Scrambling

Gorge walking, or ghyll scrambling, takes you up the steep path of a river, scrambling up and sliding down the path of the water. The word ghyll comes from the Norsk word for mountain stream and gorge walking is the most fun way to explore these stunning streams.


A adrenaline pumping way to get down hidden water systems of the Lakes and Yorkshire Dales – amazing fun using ropes and harnesses or simply plucking up the courage to jump into the pool far below.

Amazing private photography tour of The Lakes. Chris was extremely professional and gave me plenty of time. Bespoke experience is highly recommended, especially if you are on a short visit and want make the most of your time.

We had such a fantastic day, we got exactly what we wanted from our activity day! Chris was a great instructor, so positive and enthusiastic, it was brilliant to have one to one tuition.

A fantastic day spent in the outdoors with lovely company and loads of guidance from Chris and Lynn. Canoeing, making the pancakes, learning to gather kindling and light a fire made the day most enjoyable.
