“superb very refreshing”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Spent the bank holiday week-end with friends in Keswick and we decided to go with a morning of canoeing and afternoon of ghyll scrambling , Alastair went above and beyond the call of duty when we were canoeing , giving a piggyback to one damsel in distress ! It was a great morning and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves felt very safe in Alistairs hands and out spaniel had a rare time as a passenger in our canoe.
Phil and Alistair were brilliant as out guides when we went ghyll scrambling a superb afternoon very fun and refreshing definitely give this a go worth every penny and make sure you have dry clothes to get back into .

“We will be back!”
Reviewed May 21, 2014

A really last minute day booked, but Alastair fitted us in still, even when we kept adding to the itinerary, as we couldn't decide! Spent the whole day with our guide Phil and had a great time! This guy really know his stuff! Verra Ferrata in the morning and Ghyll Scrambling in the afternoon and even in the Cumbrian weather it was a blast! Only 3 of us all day, to celebrate my birthday and I couldn't have had a better day. Anyone who wants an afternoon, day or weekend of fun, then this is the place to go! We will be back to try everything else! Thanks Phil and Alastair

“Great afternoon of pain and thrills”
Reviewed May 19, 2014 via mobile

We went Gyhll Scrambling for the first time and had the best time,never done anything that comes close to this, if you like to push yourself then give it a go, highly recommend . We were well looked after , infact we were the only two booked in on Sunday afternoon so it was nice in a way as I was more nervous than my husband and needed help on some of the drops,bring on the Via Ferrata extreme, thanks lads we are now home having a drink nursing our bumps and bruises

“Absolutely Brilliant!! Try it!”
Reviewed May 12, 2014 via mobile

I booked a secret weekend away for my partner for his birthday. He had no idea what we were doing until we arrived at the Adventure Centre! Ghyll scrambling is brilliant. Neither of us had done it before. When we arrived we met Al who gave us 2 wet suits each to wear then he took us in his mini bus to the waterfalls some 10 mins drive away. We then had a 10 min walk up to the start. Al was brilliant - very funny, explained everything and we trusted him, which helps herb doing this activity! We were sliding down shoots, jumping and diving into water and just having an awesome time. I would recommend this to everybody to give it a go. We didn't want it to end! Also thought it was great value for money. We will be back. Thanks very much Al :) x

“Great Fun”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

Me and a friend booked on to a ghyll scrambling trip. We were the only two on the trip but our guide, Phil, cut no corners and we had a brilliant time. It was the right balance between fun and scary and we were not pressured into anything we felt uncomfortable doing. Great day out, I will be doing this again with more people.
