An amazing one on one Adventure day! Rock climbing in the morning and ghyll scrambling in the afternoon. Thanks to John for a fun and thrilling experience which I will never forget. I learnt loads and was challenged and I would highly recommend!! Very flexible with fitting the activity around the weather so I didn't miss out. Definitely worth a... More

All 10 of us had a great day with Adam at Stonycroft Ghyll! Most had sore heads from the night before but they were soon forgotten about when plunged into freezing cold water! Would definitely recommend, and will most likely be back to do this again. Cheers!

We do a regular challenge each year, this year we chose the 10 peaks in the Lake District. What really impressed me with mobile adventure was the great communication from John and his team prior to the event, all questions were answered promptly and factually. The actual day was fabulous with a couple of great guides ('Still' John, Steve). Don't... More

Booked Via Ferrata for my stag do as I wanted an experience to remember with my friends other than getting hammered and being a pillock. Needless to say, it was a fantastic afternoon and something I would do again! The course instructors were very friendly and easy to get along with and gave expert guidance throughout. As a company, Mobile... More

This was our 2nd time using Mobile Adventure, so we chose something different being the water day, wild camping followed by Ghyll scrambling the next day. We were a party of 4 guys with 7 teenagers. John looked after us for the weekend and was very friendly, relaxed but attentive and safety conscious. He created a great programme for us... More

I booked a half day activity session for my family of four (Me, wife and two teenage sons). Great communication and organisation leading up to the ghyll scrambling session. The session was great fun and included challenges for all. A definite recommend!

Although we are regular indoor climbers (albeit without ropes) we had never climbed outdoors and we thought Keswick would be an excellent place to start - it certainly did not disappoint. John took us through the unfamiliar equipment and gave us a great introduction to the world of outdoor climbing. Highly recommend giving it a go, thanks John!

We're a group of 9 booked for the Adrenalin Day. Since our group is a bit crowd, Mobile Adventure booked us a minibus service to take us from the campsite to Honister Mine and the ghyll which is great. We met our instructor John for the two sessions at Honister. We had a small briefing (with some history at Brunel... More
