Extreme Canyoning!

20141015 PA150362 304x228 Lakeland Ascents | Canyoning   the Extreme trip

One of many raging waterfalls to descend

We offer several great canyoning experiences in the Lake District for all types of groups from the uninitiated to the experienced adrenaline seeker. This page is about our full day Extreme Canyoning trip. Other options can be found by clicking here.

This really is THE BEST canyoning trip in the Lake District, by a mile! Due to the extreme nature of this trip it is rarely guided by any other company. We feel however that it is too good not to share so we’ve worked hard with our best instructors to bring this opportunity to you.

Extreme canyoning is not for the faint hearted – this descent is all about BIG abseils and BIG slides down endless fast flowing, raging waterfalls of up to 40 meters high. As soon as you’ve braved one, another awaits around the corner – they just keep on coming at you.

Full-on extreme canyoning

Ages and abilities: Our Extreme trip is just that – extreme. It is pretty full on so is only suitable for adults. A good level of fitness is important for this trip – to get to the canyon we bash up a steep hill for about 45 mins and when we get there you need to have enough left in the tank to take on this epic descent. Previous experience of activities like this is desirable.

 

Location: Precise details of where to meet will be shared with you when you book. The canyon is in the central Lake District and is easily accessible by car from key locations like Keswick, Ambleside and Windermere.

 

Times: This is a full day trip, lasting from around 10:00 through until around 16:00. Exact finish timings will depend on the size of your group and how quickly you move through the canyon.

A big abseil, but not THE biggest!

Kit:  We will kit you out with a wetsuit, windproof cag and all safety equipment such as harnesses, helmets and buoyancy aids. All our kit is in excellent condition and is replaced regularly. All you need to bring is:

  • Full change of clothes and shoes, as you will get wet
  • Trainers or boots (Neoprene ‘water shoes’ are not appropriate, neither are Converse style slip-on trainers or Crocs)
  • Shorts to wear over your wetsuit – as they help protect our wetsuits and keep our costs low
  • Synthetic layer to go under your wetsuit (e.g. football shirt material, not cotton)
  • Fleece (to wear over your wetsuit in colder months)
  • Spare warm layer or jacket
  • Towel
  • Lunch a drink

 

Group sizes and ratios: Generally, we run private, bespoke sessions for just you and your party. At busy times you might be part of a larger group. If you want a private session, then just let us know (there is no extra cost). We put your safety first and as this is such a serious trip we always have at least two instructors with us.
