Lakes Adventure – Attempt the UK’s first Via ferrata, recently re-opened in the heart of the Lake District. Completely harnessed and secured to the via ferrata line, you will be completely safe as you traverse, in your group, along the via ferrata route. Supporting each other with laughter and words of encouragement, you will feel a sense of achievement and elation as you reach the end.

After lunch, we will have a go at ghyll scrambling, whilst taking in the beautiful views the Lake District has to offer. A mini bus back to our accommodation in Keswick, with some time to relax and unwind before dinner.

The next day after breakfast we’ll take a walk along the old railway up to Latrigg, one of the Lakes lower mountains, with magnificent views over Derwent water, Keswick and the Northern Lakes. Strolling back down take time to look around Keswick or make your way slowly back home after a satisfying weekend of adventure..

Friday 24th – Sunday 26th July 2015

Via ferrata requires only a basic fitness, however some of the routes involve some scrambling at heights therefore a good ‘head for heights’ is necessary. Safety equipment is used throughout the via ferrata session.

Again, a basic level of fitness is required for gorge scrambling, and being comfortable in flowing water is recommended. Wetsuits and all safety equipment provided.

All our activities are led by fully qualified guides.
