Outdoor Activity: Ghyll Scrambling in the Lake District

Ghyll Scrambling in the Lake District

The most popular outdoor adventure challenge in the Lake District! Ghyll scrambling is also known as gorge scrambling and involves climbing or descending a mountain gorge, negotiating your way along the torrents, amongst the boulders, climbing or jumping over waterfalls and wading or swimming through pools. Ghyll scrambling is almost invariably a wet experience, thought he physical nature of the activity means you'll stay warm in all but the coldest of conditions.


The Lake District is the premier location for ghyll scrambling in the UK with over 30 superb gorges or ghylls to scramble from short (2-3 hour) exhilarating entry-level experiences to extreme technically challenging full-day adventures.


There are ghylls and gorges to scramble close to Keswick, Ambleside, Penrith, Kendal, Windermere, Coniston, Newby Bridge and within a short drive of almost any location in Cumbria.


We will provide all necessary technical and safety equipment, so all you need to bring is warm clothes, a change of clothing and a towel.
