Due to our location in Cumbria we are ideally situated to offer our summer holiday and year round activities to people in the Lake District and Eden Valley.  Our activites to name a few include Ghyll scrambling, canyoning, kayak tours, raft building, canoeing, rock climbing, abseiling, crate stack and archery.  Our canoe and kayak tours generally take place on Ullswater and can be combined with various adventurous activities along the lake shore to create a multi-activity session.  Options to choose from include abseiling, cliff jumping and rock climbing.  We do half to full day tours and can include a picnic or BBQ on a beach.

When the weather is being temperamental or cold during your holiday we have a fantastic indoor activity centre open all year round with climbing, abseiling, crate stack, aerial tight rope walking and archery.  Our indoor activity sessions are completely flexible regarding the activities you want to try; book an instructor for your chosen length of time and try out as little or as many activities as you wish, ideal for families and groups wanting fun activites in the dry.
