This guided small-group full-day hike is led by a qualified mountain guide for route-planning, safety, and pointers on the views, leaving you to just enjoy the walk and scenery stress-free. Climb via the Corridor Route, and at the 3,209ft-high (978-meter) summit, admire the panoramas over forests, fells, and lakes before descending.

Ghyll Scrambling in Langdale

Scrambling up the Lake District’s ‘ghylls’—mountain streams—can be hazardous without a guide. This guided half-day experience in Langdale lets you enjoy the activity safely and easily. Don the supplied wetsuit and equipment, and clamber up the waters of Stickle Gill. Cross boulders, climb falls, slide natural chutes, and plunge into pools—the water is shallow enough to suit all levels of fitness and children aged eight or over.

We spent a day on a beginners navigation course. It was very enjoyable; we learned some valuable skills, exercising our brains as well as our legs! Knowledgeable instructor. Accommodating, helpful office staff. Thoroughly recommend it if you are in the Lake District.
