Water Adventures!

Outdoor water adventures in the lake district

Stoneycroft Linked, Newlands Valley, Keswick


This adventure links together both ghyll scrambling and canyoning at Stoneycroft ghyll, in the beautiful Newlands Valley, Keswick. Once you have met your instructor at the site, you will be kitted up and taken up the old miners track to the top of the ghyll. We will give you a few top tips on how to get the most out your session before you proceed to scramble, slide, jump and dive all the way to the canyon entrance for the second part of your adventure.

As you explore deeper into the canyon you will get the chance to abseil down through gorgeous waterfalls, slide and jump into pools of clear mountain water! This is an intensive double activity, which will leave you ready for a well deserved pub meal afterwards!
