    Learn about ghyll scrambling and join for an exciting adventure in Britain’s most popular natural area.

    The Lake District (also known as Lakeland or The Lakes) extends along the mountains of North West England and it’s the largest national park in the country. It’s an attractive spot for outdoor lovers, with lakes, peaks and forests.

    Besides, it’s a very rainy area that has many mountain streams known as ‘ghylls‘.

    Basically, Ghyll scrambling consists on travelling up or down a mountain stream in a gorge, using our hands to move forward and finally jumping into crystal clear pools. You can picture it as a mix of rock climbing and canyoning.

    Everyone can enjoy this activity, no matter your experience level, ability or age. Therefore, it’s a great option for families. And you can even choose not to get wet.

    I usually organize half-day trips, so you should repare yourself for around 4 hours of adrenaline and fun!

    Please contact me if you want to be a part of this ghyll scrambling adventure. It will be a great way to explore the beautiful British Lake District.
