If you’re looking for a challenge, why not give Via Ferrata a go? The Via Ferrata in the Lake District is situated in Honister pass and offers two routes of varying difficulty and exposure. ‘Via Ferrata’ originated in the Dolomites in Northern Italy, and it means ‘Iron Road’ or ‘Iron Way’. They were used strategically by the military for moving soldiers and munitions through the mountains.

We had a fantastic day with Wes doing challenging ghyll scrambling and dramatic jumps - Wes is a great guide, knew the ghyll well and was safety conscious without being a killjoy! Wes is super-helpful with participants of all ages and abilities - highly recommended.
