Adventure and Activity days include two or more activities in one area. We have days designed for Coniston, Windermere, Ambleside and Ingleton. .
Mega Abseil and Rocky Gorge Day
A short challenge to find your way through the woods to Cathedral Caverns and then either a gentle abseil or our mega abseil of 120ft into a stunning slate quarry. From here we find our way out through the mine tunnels and follow on with a climb up a steep Lakeland gorge and finish a truely memorable day by jumping off waterfalls into sparkling, crystal clear pools of water.
Canoe Safari and Bushcraft Day
Learn the how to light a fire from flint and some simple cooking techniques then paddle off across the lake and create your own wilderness experience: are you skilled enough to produce a hot drink on a open fire and serve it with your own pizza and fruit crumble?
Dales Caving Day
Cascades and caverns in spectacular settings. Just a few miles from the edge of Lake District, spreading into the Dales, lies the largest most spectacular caving region of the UK. For a truly memorable experience we suggest a trip underground. Enjoy walking down the water worn steam passageways, negotiating series of small cascades to reach passages with spectacular formations including gower pools, stalactites and stalagmites. For the more daring there are waterfalls to descend and narrow passages to explore, all in the safe hands of an expert.
Woodland Activities Day
A Selection from: Low Ropes Course, Archery, Tree Climbs, Tyrolean Pond Crossing, initiative challenges, shelter building, orienteering score event or Kelly Kettle Cooking. (High ropes options available at extra charge -Gladiator Challenge, High All-aboard, Crate Stack,) With the option to finish with Raftbuilding and races or canoeing. Based at Great Tower overlooking Lake Winderemere . ( All the non fixed rope elements can be taken to alternative venues)
Canyoning Adventure Day
Not for the faint hearted. Descend spectacular gorges in the most adventurous fashion. Once commited you jump, slide or abseil down a series of waterfalls into deep plunge pools.
The day begins with a short training abseil session in a local quarry. Once everyone is happy with abseiling techniques and applying these skills in the Canyon we have a quick bite to eat before spending the rest of the day Canyoning. Wetsuits, helmets, harnesses and buoyancy aids provided.
Climb and Kayak Canoe Adventure Day
Spend an enjoyable morning Rock Climbing, at our local crag. You will be well rewarded from the top with views across the Lake District National Park and Morecombe Bay. From here we have a short drive to Lake Windermere where we'll spend the rest of the afternoon Kayaking or Canoeing (your choice!). Once we've learnt a few Kayaking skills, we'll head off on a journey along the shoreline.
