Wow, what a brilliant experience for our family with two boys aged 12 and 14. Great fun, exhilarating and daring, in a beautiful part of the country. Our guide Chris was knowledgeable and we felt safe at all times with his direction. Can't wait to do it again

Fantastic company. What a fabulous birthday present from my daughters. My wife and I were feeling a bit tentative in the morning having checked this out on YouTube. But we had a blast, Andy and Chris are just brilliant at what they do. We felt completely safe most of the time!! If you get the opportunity to do this, go for it. Its amazing. Also the gear supplied was top quality. Thanks for a great 3 hours. Nigel and Dawn 2 sixty plus olds.

Amazing, adventurous, action packed, adrenaline filled day!! Our family, 13 of us, from ages 6-60 years, enjoyed the ghyll scrambling immensely! Expertly lead by Chris and Andy, who were encouraging, supportive and put everyone at ease! We felt in very safe hands! They gave clear instructions making the course great fun, but never compromised safely at all!! Our group had mixed ability but each fall, jump, dive could be taken at a low level and bum slide along, or a higher end for the braver of the group!! The day seen family members overcome fears and some lovely heart-warming moments where every was cheering on others! Character building! Thank you for a day to remember!! We will be back with a bigger group again next year! Highly recommend! We all said it was stand alone the best activity we have done! X

Brill from start to finish. Easy to book and get all the info needed from Andy via email. On the day, all the gear was ready and perfect for the job at hand 3 instructors (and Eva the dog!) were brilliant at looking after everyone, adults and children alike, keeping it safe and fun. The ghyll itself was perfect for testing everyone but also being accessible for all. Our 8 year old, who can be nervous about adventurous activities, happily did every single part. The best experience and good value.

We booked this adventure to celebrate my eldest son’s 21st birthday and it was the highlight of our annual visit to the Lakes! Chris and Matt were fun and reassuring, giving us bags of confidence as we scrambled down a rocky stream, with slides down smooth rocks, jumps into sheltered pools, and paddling through stunning gorges with vibrantly coloured moss and gnarled trees curling their way up towards the sun. I highly recommend the extension, involving abseiling down waterfalls and seeing the lower, more enclosed part of the gorge, with its hidden secrets (if you stop to look around you between bursts of adrenaline!). I also loved the (optional) underwater hole to swim through. The wetsuits are high quality, with hoods, and I didn’t feel cold at all, which was a massive bonus! (If you feel the cold, wear thermals underneath for added comfort.) Thank you for a brilliant day!
