Did it for a stag do - great activity, something different, and we were very lucky with the weather! Guides are great fun and their dog comes along too! Highly recommended

Excellent afternoon gorge scrambling with Simon. We had an amazing time and felt well supported and encouraged. Definitely got the adrenaline going! Turned out to just be the two of us yet it still went ahead which was great.

I totally enjoyed my visit to lake district. I was almost breathless while hiking the hills ptobably because I am not much of a climber but the view was breathtaking. I hiked a small hill in Bowness. Overall it was intense but i loved it

Good fun and well organised. Si struck a good balance between instructing and joining in. No hesitation in recommending Si and Lake District Activities. Tim B.

Well organised, safe and great fun. Met up with Si, short drive off to the gorge and 10 minute walk to start our experience. Good fun with a variety of way of heading down the gorge. Not too cold as we kept moving. Top time,...More

I presume you're wondering about the gorge scrambling sessions, as opposed to rock climbing! Don't worry - he doesn't need to be able to swim. He will be wearing a buoyancy aid so he can float about to his leisure. If he... More
