Open to everyone
Located in northwest England, the Lake District is the ideal playground for outdoor adventures for families. Scrambling, abseiling and rock climbing are some of the activities to discover and enjoy in a parent-child or family trip you’ll never forget!
There are 3 different day-trip options for you to choose from, depending on the type of outdoor adventure you are looking for, and the level of challenge you and your family are seeking.
The mountain activities that can be organized include abseiling, rock climbing, scrambling, and navigation. All of them are designed to entertain children and adults, and combined to build outdoor adventures for families to be remembered.
Discover the 3 options for day trips in the Lake District:
This itinerary is ideal for families and groups (up to 8 people), including kids aged 7+. It includes a full day of activities like climbing and abseiling and a treasure hunt. The treasure hunt is organized as an ‘escape room’ to entertain kids, and at the same time to learn navigation skills such as the use of a compass and a map.
This option is slightly more challenging, including climbing, abseiling, and scrambling. It’s recommended for kids aged 11+, and for families and groups of up to 6 people.
Are you looking for a true mountain challenge to face with your child? Then this is the option for you. The Mega Mountains itinerary is a full day in the hills for 2 people only (for kids aged 11+), scrambling on Grade 2 or 3 routes.
The activity starts meeting the guide at 9.30 for the 3 options and ends at 4.30 PM. On the first 2 (Mini and Mighty) you’ll do an activity in the morning, then have a lunch break at the meeting point, and finalize with another activity in the afternoon. On the Mega Mountains itinerary, you’ll be on the hills for the whole day.
Contact me if you are interested in doing any of these Outdoor Activities for Families in the Lake District, and I’ll be happy to organize it. Both you and your kids will bring back memories for a lifetime!

I am a fully-qualified Mountaineering and Climbing Instructor and full member of AMI, as well as a Summer, Winter and International Mountain Leader, with over 25 years experience of working in the outdoor industry. I will be your guide or instructor.
I fell in love with the mountains of the Lake District at first sight and I am happy to say the Lake District has now been my office and my home for more than 15 years. I can't imagine living anywhere else.
I have walked up every mountain in England and Wales and am well into my Munro list. I have rock climbed widely across Europe and on three other continents. I love the snowy mountains and nice warm rock, and am a regular at the local climbing wall. I'm glad to say my family enjoy the mountains just as much.
I hope that I can impart a little of my passion for the outdoors on my days with you. See you in the mountains!

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.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
