If you are over 7 and up for it, then we'd love to take you - read our reviews on Trip Adviser.
Ghyll scrambling has many names, Gill scrambling, Gorge Scrambling and Canyoning. Despite the term 'Scrambling' usually meaning to 'go up' this term means up or down in Ghyll Scrambling - Down being the biggest adrenaline rush....and only a 5 minute drive from our stores to Stoneycroft Ghyll.
Ghyll scrambling is the most popular outdoor adventure that Keswick Adventure Centre do and one that people come back for time after time, although White Water Tubing is a close second.
It can be as wet or as dry as you like as you follow one of many streams, beck’s and gorges. The only way to describe this activity is to say that it's like caving with the roof off. In the ghyll there are many waterfall climbs, rock traverses, rocky obstacles and jumps into plunge pools. You won't believe how much fun ghyll scrambling is until you've tried it!
Here at Keswick Adventure Centre we expertly guide you either 'up' Honister Ghyll or 'down' Stoneycroft ghylls - why not spend a whole day getting wet and do both ghylls? This is for the crazy only!
We will provide you with a fleece 'teddy' suit and jacket and helmet in the cost of this activity, however you will need to bring a towel and a FULL change of clothing!!!! If you don't want the hassel of having wet clothes during your holiday we can supply wetsuits. These are available for a small extra charge.
Ask anyone who has done this activity about the infamous ‘Washing Machine’ in Stoneycroft Ghyll and book a date for the thrill of your life.
