The Lake District’s Premier Provider of Outdoor Activities Offering a range of exciting adventures for families, groups, couples & individuals.

We will be closed for all activities and hire from Friday 18th September for our annual family holiday and resume for the October Half Term break on Sunday 25th October.

Based in the Eskdale Valley at the heart of the Western Lake District, with easy access to Wastwater and Scafell Pike we really could not be better placed to provide a wide range of outdoor adventures.

We provide the highest quality of specialist equipment, and our team of highly experienced and qualified instructors are chosen not just for their professionalism, but for their personalities, and will ensure you have a fun, enjoyable and safe experience.

With our extensive knowledge of the Lake District and the outdoors, we can offer tailor made private activity days for your group and we are more than happy to put full packages together including accommodation.

Why not try out our activities on one of our existing “Open Sessions”, these run from April until September, which you can simply book spaces onto.

We are open all year round, we opporate our activities from Easter until September and can accommodate advanced group bookings out of season.

Ghyll Scrambling & Canyoning

Ghyll scrambling and canyoning are both exhilarating activities. They are our most popular activities by far!



Open Canoeing is a wonderfully inclusive sport that can be enjoyed by anyone, irrespective of age or ability.



Kayak on Wastwater surrounded by spectacular scenery, or the slow moving tidal waters of the River Esk.


Stand Up Paddle Boarding

Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP) is a fantastic fun water activity and is fast becoming the paddle sport of choice.
