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.


Rock Climbing & Abseiling

Rock Climbing is a fun and rewarding activity. Try it for the first time or develop your skills, we can offer coaching at all levels. Challenge yourself and test your nerves with abseiling, gain a sense of self belief and confidence.
