Outdoor water adventures in the lake district

Canyoning at Stoneycroft, Newlands Valley, Keswick


Our Canyoning adventure in the beautiful Newlands Valley in Keswick, is one for the thrill seekers! Once you’re suited and booted and have received a safety briefing from your instructor, you will descend the steepest section of Stoneycroft ghyll by abseil, scrambling, jumping and sliding, all whilst taking in scenery that can’t be seen from a footpath!

This adventure can not only teach you a new set of skills, but may also teach you things about our local area you may not already know. Stoney Croft canyon has a history built from the mining industry, which your instructor will explain as you descend deeper into the canyon.
