Activity Highlights:

Dive into the thrilling world of canyoning, an adventure that has captured the hearts of Europe for years and is now making waves in the UK. While it’s still relatively new on British soil, canyoning is quickly gaining popularity, and we’re at the forefront of exploring and developing canyoning venues right here in the Lake District.

Key Details

  • Location: Our Hell’s Gorge Canyoning adventure takes you deep into the wild and hidden beauty of the Langdale Valley, offering an escapable and introductory canyoning experience.
  • When: We typically meet at 10 am, gearing up in wetsuits and conducting a safety briefing before embarking on a 30-minute approach walk to the top of the canyon. The adventure involves approximately 1.5 hours in the water, and we finish around 1pm.

What to Expect

This canyoning journey combines the excitement of canyon descent with exhilarating gorge scrambling, creating an unforgettable experience.

The highlight of the trip is a massive 40-meter waterfall plunging into a crystal-clear pool—an iconic and photogenic moment.

Before tackling this giant, you’ll warm up with a smaller waterfall descent.

The adventure continues down the canyon, where you’ll navigate boulder-strewn terrain and engage with challenges along the way.

Finally, you’ll reach a small footbridge and exit the canyon.
