When climbing isn’t what you need, a day of Ghyll Scrambling in Coniston is ideal. Also known as gorge walking or gorge scrambling, prepare to traverse rivers and lakes of the Lakes in this fun outdoor activity great for adults and fun for kids to do too!
You will meet the instructor close to the venue; amid the stunning Lake District mountain scenery. Here you will be kitted out with wetsuits, wetsuit socks, boots, helmets and buoyancy aids ready for your adventure. After a short work and your safety briefing plus a few hints and tips to make sure you get the most from your experience, you will head off into the gorge.
The journey start fairly gentle with the route crossing small pools and boulder hopping, allowing time for everyone to get warmed up. Soon enough the gradient increases and the first small waterfalls are reached and climbed. From now on the gorge presents array of challenge often presenting a choice of harder options for the more daring or easier for those who would like a gentler trip. There are waterfalls to climb, traverses above the stream, crawls under logs, swims across the pools and leaps from rocks into the water
The instructor will be on hand throughout the day making sure you stay safe but still enjoy a real thrilling adventure.
At the end of the gorge it’s a short walk back to your start point giving just enough time to reflect on the thrills and spills of your trip. You may be slightly wetter than when you started but you will have had an experience you won’t forget.
Back at the start point it’s time to get changed and return the equipment before a well deserved hot drink.
