Walking

Are you taking your first steps out into the mountains or are you already a keen walker?

​With fell walking being one of the most popular activities in the Lake District, would you like to tackle the most popular mountains? Ascend Helvellyn, Scafell Pike, Blencathra, or walk along ridges such as Striding Edge or Sharp Edge. Maybe you want to find the quiet spots, or explore lowland valleys, even explore for waterfalls. You might even have your own tick list of Fells to walk, but lack the confidence to tackle them.


​What are you waiting for? Book yourself or group a fun adventure in the stunning Cumbrian Mountains.

Fantastic trip with two youngsters!! Really patient, encouraging and fun for the kids!! Couldn’t recommend enough

Walking up Helvellyn; a walk in the Ullswater valley

If you fancy something that will get your heart beating faster, yet still able to take in the beautiful Cumbrian surroundings, then why not check out climbing and scrambling...

Climbing


The Lake District has many famous climbs and is home to fantastic climbing which rivals that of any other area. Without a doubt, it has something exciting for everyone, from the complete novice to intermediate and the experienced climber. Are you looking to have a safe, fantastic time climbing? Then look no further!

Scrambling


Scramble up a watercourse, traverse around rock pools and climb up waterfalls. The aim of this unique adventure is to stay dry whilst scrambling up a mountain ghyll. This is quite the opposite of wet ghyll scrambling, where the aim is to get as wet as possible by being in the water.
