Definitely one for the waterfall lover!

Gorge scrambling

Lets face it: it rains a lot in the Lake District, so why not give in to the weather – it’s time to get wet! Gorge Scrambling (or ghyll scrambling) involves scrambling directly up a mountain river, but in the water rather than by taking the more traditional (and dull!) path along the side!

You’ll be amazed how quickly the water stops feeling cold as you climb over trees, boulders, up rocky steps and even up waterfalls! We’ll make sure that we find you some plunge pools and slides too, to ensure that you go home with not a patch of dry clothing!

We’ll kit you out in wetsuits and provide all the safety equipment that you need to ensure that you have an exhilarating but safe time taking on a classic gorge scramble. All the obstacles can be bypassed if they don’t appeal to you and the water rarely comes above waist level, so being a strong swimmer isn’t a prerequisite.

This popular activity is great for groups and is also a great way of tiring out the kids. It works really well as a half-day session, enabling you to create your perfect multi-activity day by marrying this activity up with half a day of abseilingrock climbingscrambling, or canyoning.

Gorge scrambling is also perfect for Hen and Stag parties and is brilliant as part of a team building day for corporate clients.
