Ghyll Scrambling

  • Location Keswick
  • Price from £40.00


Have you ever wanted to go down a naturally formed waterpark?
Are you brave enough to jump off the Corkscrew?
Do you want to get soaked from head to toe?
Then Ghyll Scrambling is the activity for you!

Sun, Wind or Rain this is the favourite activity for visitors to Newlands. Ghyll Scrambling is a wet decent of a Lakeland mountain stream, We are based just twenty minutes walk away from the top of the ghyll which means the only thing getting soaked is yourselves and not your cars!  

When you arrive you will be equipped with a Wetsuit, several layers of clothing, waterproofs, buoyancy aid and a helmet. Once equipped you will then do the 20-minute walk to the top of the Ghyll learning some history about the valley along the way! Before the fun can begin, our instructors will introduce the safety method of scrambling, jumping and sliding required to safely make your descent down the Ghyll. Then it is into the water, scrambling through pools, down waterslides and even jumping off waterfalls. We will be taking some pictures for you all to see and keep as you are making you way down the Ghyll also!  With Newlands so close, the session can be timed to suit the prevailing weather, so it is only a short walk back to the drying room and changing facilities! 

Once we are back at the centre, Hot or Cold drinks will be provided along with viewing of the photos from the session! (Photos subject to weather and conditions of session)
