“Amazing Autumnal Adventure!”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

We had a fantastic day out with River Deep Mountain High gorge walking on a very chilly November morning. When we first arrived the extremely helpful and informative staff kitted us out with everything we needed and talked us through what we would be doing on the gorge walk. Within 5 minutes we were plunged into ice cold water and we absolutely loved it. From there we slowly worked our way up the gorge, taking on waterfalls, plunge pools, rock faces and vine covered walkways along the way. Once at the top, we were treated to a welcome cup of hot chocolate to warm both our cockles and our chilly extremities. This was followed by a leisurely saunter back down the gorge (on dry land thankfully), where we returned to our cars with a true sense of achievement that could never be accomplished by spending a Saturday afternoon on the high street.

“Fantastic Day Out”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Had a great day out with RDMH kayaking on Coniston. Liam the instructor/leader was great, really knowledgeable and helpful, especially when it came to squeezing my 6'4" lump of a body into a kayak! This was my first time kayaking and won't be my last. Would definetly recommend this company and the kayaking trip they do, I'll have to book again next time I'm in the Lakes.

“Fabulous Fun in the Lakes!”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

We had a 4 children with us age range 5 -8 years and RDNH coped with them brilliantly. As they were so young there was a limited range of activities they were able to do, but we all rock climbed and canadian canoed and they had a brilliant time. The instructors were professional and friendly and I had complete confidence that they would challenge us but not put our little ones in danger.I would certainly recommend the company and we will definately use them again as the kids get older and a whole new range of activities are opened up to us.

“Wonderful taster in rockclimbing and sailing”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

We, father age 56 and son age 14, went on half days sailing and rockclimbing. Both were very good. Led by friendly, confident professionals in small groups. As an ageing father I was really taken forward and will certainly renew a rock climbing experience. The sailing on Coniston was great in a larger Hawk boat which easily took the 5 of us.

“Rydal Beck Gorge Walk”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

Gorge Walking is probably our favourite activity in the Lakes. We had a great time at Rydal Beck with River Deep Mountain High and our instructor, Dave. We met up at 1.30pm for kit distribution and a brief talk about what to expect, and we were in the water at 2pm to walk, paddle, swim and climb up the beck against the oncoming water. Yes it's cold and difficult but you soon get used to the challenge, and the hot chocolate at half-way point (yes, really) is the best you'll ever taste. It's fantastic fun and I recommend RDMH - the instructor allows and ecourages you to push yourself and be adventurous while making sure it's safe, and the climax of the big jump is a great way to finish. A great way to spend a few hours and highly recommended.
