Enjoy a great 1-day adventure in the British Lake District! Join Neil, IFMGA guide, and try ghyill scrambling, a mix of rock climbing and canyoning.

1/2 Day

Apr - Oct


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.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
