Multi-Activity Day in the Lake District Overview

Why not try a couple of exciting outdoor activities during your day? If you book a Multi-Activity Day in the Lake District, you get to choose a combination of activities from the list below. It could be a classic combination, such as Rock Climbing and Abseiling in the morning, followed by Ghyll Scrambling in the afternoon. Have a look through the list of activities below for some ideas and inspiration, and feel free to get in touch to discuss a personalised itinerary:

  • Rock Climbing:

Our rock climbing taster sessions are designed to be fun and friendly. They can be run indoors or out (depending on the weather) and we aim to give you the best experience possible with maximum time climbing! Rock Climbing sessions run as part of a multi-activity day can also be combined with Abseiling as one activity.

  • Abseiling:

Why not test your nerve on one of our thrilling abseiling sessions! We use a variety of outdoor venues that vary in height. Our abseiling sessions can be run as a stand-alone activity or combined with a rock climbing session.

  • Ghyll Scrambling:

This brilliant activity involves scrambling up or down a mountain stream or river. It is typically but not exclusively a wet activity and involves sliding and jumping into cold, clear mountain water! For an unforgettable day, why not choose a dry activity in the morning and combine it with a wet and wild Ghyll Scrambling session in the afternoon?

  • Via Ferrata:

The Via Ferrata is situated in Honister pass and offers two routes of varying length and difficulty. We start by kitting you up with a harness, helmet and a set of via ferrata lanyards, which we use to clip to a steel cable that runs from the bottom of the mountain to the top! This provides our safety system as we make progress up an exposed mountainside.

  • Problem Solving:

We provide a variety of problem-solving activities with an emphasis on team building. These are usually more mentally challenging tasks that require group members to ‘think outside the box’. A full or half-day can be catered for with a variety of problem-solving tasks and other short activity sessions from this list. These activities work really well as part of a self-led challenge day* with an element of friendly competition. Please get in touch for more information.

  • Ziplines and Tyrolean Traverses:

We use a number of venues for zip lines and tyrolean traverses. These are not permanent structures and require some setting up-up beforehand. As such, we are only able to run these activities for larger groups.

  • Orienteering:

Orienteering is a fantastic sport that combines and refines map reading skills, teamwork, and fitness. Participants are given a map with waymarked points that they have to visit and record. There are a variety of permanent courses throughout the Lakes and we are also able to set specific courses for you. The way-marked points can be replaced with other problem-solving activities as mentioned above as part of a self-led challenge day.

  • Canoeing

Canoeing is a great way of exploring and connecting with nature. Our sessions can be run on many of the Lake District’s large lakes where we might visit an island, put up a sail and let the wind do the work, or take a journey down a gentle river. Canoeing works really well with our bushcraft sessions as outlined below.

  • Bushcraft:

Get back to basics with one of our fantastic bushcraft sessions. Armed with a few basic materials and tools, we can show you not only how to look after yourself in the wild, but how to thrive! Typically we’ll look at shelter building and fire lighting. We’ll then get the Kelly Kettle on and knock up a hot chocolate and roast marshmallows on the fire!

* We can also arrange challenge days for larger groups with more activities. Please contact us for more information.

Activity Prices:

Our Multi-Activity day is priced per person assuming a group of four or more. If your group is less than four, we charge a flat rate. Your booking will be treated as private unless you give us permission to open it up to the public as a scheduled activity. This could lower the overall cost in line with the rates below:

  • 1-3 participants: £250 flat rate
  • 4-6 participants: £65 per person
  • 7-10 participants: £60 per person

*There will be an additional fee if you choose the Via Ferrata as one of your activities, or if you choose an indoor climbing session as part of the day. This is to cover the cost of admission.

How many can participate?

We believe that keeping group numbers low enhances your experience. Therefore, we run these activities with a maximum of ten people.

How to book?

Please get in touch using the enquiry form on this page and we’ll get back to you with all of the details and a booking form for you to complete. We require a 30% deposit to secure bookings and full payment prior to your course or activity commencing. If you would like any more information or have a specific question, please use the contact form in the menu at the top of the page.

*In extremely wet conditions some of these activities may be cancelled for safety reasons in which case a full refund will be issued or an option to re-book.

What do I need to bring with me?

We will provide all of the safety equipment required. You may need to bring some of your own personal items depending on the activities you choose. We will let you exactly what you will need to bring when you book. However, it’s likely to include warm/waterproof clothing, a towel, a spare change of clothing and footwear, and a packed lunch.
