Gorge Scrambling Trips
Gorge Scrambling is a classic Lake District experience - are you up for it?
Gorge scrambling is a fun, yet challenging activity and a fantastic way to experience the Lake District.
Gorge Scrambling is hard to describe in a way that does the activity justice. Until you have actually done it you will never quite understand what fun it can be!
In simple terms, you make your way up the mountainside with your group in a hidden gorge. The atmosphere and sounds in the gorge are quite different from anywhere else. you'll scramble up rocks, using your hands and feet, pause to catch your breath and look back to where you have come from - WOW! You may climb a waterfall (or hide behind one) step into a crystal clear pool, slide down a rock. Basically you make the activity up as you go along - with the help of an expert guide. Eventually, you'll emerge to some of the most stunning views in England!
As with all our guided trips we tailor the exact route taken on the abilities of the whole group. Suffice to say, you'll probably get wet and are likely to end up swimming at some point (because it's fun!) However, if you prefer to take a dryer route you can usually by-pass the most technical sections.
We provide all equipment including wetsuits, helmets, buoyancy aids. However, on warmer days you may decide to go without the wetsuit!
Trip lasts approximately 2 hours. We normally finish near a good cafe / eatery for that well deserved hot / celebratory drink!
if you are a group of physically fit adults (6 or more) and would like a gorge trip more tailored to your specific level of ability please click "Adult Groups" below.
