This was the highlight of our three-week trip to the UK. Alistair and his assistant were excellent, we had great weather and it was a huge amount of fun. Thanks, guys!

Me and my partner were visiting our friends in Kendal for the weekend and in true state it rained most of the weekend and we were stuck thinking of ideas of things we could do in the rain. One of our friends is from Keswick and mentioned ghyll scrambling, unsure what on earth it was we readily agreed.
Really glad we did, after a heavy downpour all morning, Al (who ran the activity) was worried it might be a bit of a washout but we were lucky with the water at a nice level. We joined 8 other people to make a group of 12, all who were pretty good and everyone was encouraging each other if someone was unsure about a certain obstacle. Al and Will were great at getting us all sorted and leading us down the scramble. A great laugh, with plenty of 'dad' jokes, we had an absolute blast.
Al was taking photos of everyone on the activity and at the end of the session he gets your email address and sends them to you. For free! Was very impressed with this as most companies charge for this!
If anyone is looking for something to do whilst visiting the Lakes, give ghyll scrambling a go and check out Keswick Adventure Centre. Would go with these guys again!

Me and two friends went ghyll scrambling with Keswick adventure center. Really enjoyed it. Al and Godi made us feel at ease - really helpful and fun. We had a brilliant laugh and throughly enjoyed scrambling in the water with beautiful surroundings. We would highly recommend it to anyone interested. You will not be disappointed.

Myself and my partner booked last minute on a Tuesday for early morning on Wednesday - turned out to be the best decision we made during our time in Keswick! Alastair and Godi were really friendly and a good laugh, we strongly recommend booking this if you are visiting Keswick!

We really enjoyed Ghyll scrambling with Al, Helen and Godi. We were diving, jumping and sliding in the river and forgot about the cold rainy weather. Definitely recommend!

Thanks,
