Spent a very enjoyable afternoon with Mark at Stickle Ghyll. The four of us (two in their 70's) had never done this before with ropes, but with Mark's instructions and easy going direction we soon got the hang of it. Would thoroughly recommend Mountain Journeys to anyone thinking of enjoying a guided adventure day out in the Lakes. Hope to back up there next year with my family.

Booking a multi-activity package with Mountain Journeys turned out to be the best way we could have chosen in order to get a real taster of Lake District within a day - of course we left wishing we could just have a bit more time for some more! Thanks to Mark, our lovely guide, we were able to enjoy the most beautiful scenery while remaining active and discovering the fun of combining walking with rock & ghyll scrambling. A big thank you Mark for being such good fun but also quite informative, for keeping us and making us feel safe at all times (especially those of us who had never before endeavoured to climb a waterfall), and for your patience with our endless questions!I will be definitely recommending Mountain Journeys to friends who are thinking of visiting Lake District and I am already looking forward to returning myself for some more activities!

Having decided to come up from london just for the weekend, we wanted to pack as much in to as little time as possible. Mark was so helpful, friendly and willing to tailor the day to suit exactly what we wanted and to our ability. Can't believe we managed to pack so much into a day! I would definitely recommend mountain journeys to anyone wanting to explore and have fun in the Lake District!

Visiting from London, we were both new to abseiling but enjoyed a great morning out with Mark at Castlehead near Keswick. He took the time to talk us through all the procedures properly and reassure us of the safety aspects. He was patient with us as we looked for a great camera shot, and he was happy to pick us up and return us to the cottage where we were staying. He is clearly very experienced and enjoys taking people out in the Lakes! Highly recommended.

A massive thank you from me and all the girls for getting us up Scafell the other weekend. In the morning when we saw the forecast we were doubtful that we would actually make it to the top, but despite the challenging weather conditions numerous toilet stops and changes of clothes you managed to guide us safely up and back. A truly memorable weekend not to be forgotten.

Thanks so much. It was a great privilege to be a part of your day on Scafell. With some great teamwork, we made it even in weather that at times was challenging!
