Keswick Ghyll Scrambling - Featured on BBC1's Country File!

Stonycroft, near Keswick, was the original Ghyll in Cumbria, and has been used by groups for at least 35 years - and is the ideal introduction to this amazing sport!

What is it?

Impossible to describe and impossible to forget, Ghyll Scrambles are always one of the Lake District's favourite water activities and involve descending a Lake District mountain stream under the safe guidance of our experienced instructors. The descent will include slides, dives and even jumps down waterfalls into plunge pools and is guaranteed to have you buzzing with adrenaline by the finish. Your instructor will guide you down the ghyll ensuring your safety and maximising your enjoyment of a truly unique experience!

As standard we provide all our clients with high quality, well fitting wetsuits, as well as spray jackets and helmets. This means you can enjoy this amazing trip safe in the knowledge that you are wearing the best gear possible, and ensures that we keep you warm in the waterfalls!

Hire a GoPro! Although we have always provided free photos of your activity as standard, we now offer the option of hiring our GoPro equipped helmet for only £15. We will then send you a DVD of the footage for you to enjoy at your leisure. Please book this extra service early, it really is a great way to remember your group and Keswick's finest wet experience!
