Yorkshire 3 Peaks ChallengeAll day - A big walk and a great challenge where we attempt to climb the three highest peaks in the Yorkshire Dales! This is undoubtedly the classic walk in the Yorkshire Dales. The walk is approximately 23 miles in length with an elevation gain of over 1000m. Starting at Horton-in-Ribblesdale, the walk takes you on a superb circular of the hills.
Edale Skyline ChallengeAll day - Take in the Dark Peak’s highest ridges, trails and summits. A classic circular route, it covers over 21 miles and ascends almost 1400m! The route is fantastically varied and takes you over rocky, grassy and flagstone trails. To make sure it is really an authentic experience, a little bit of the world-famous Peak District Bog is also thrown in for good measure.
Scafell Pike ChallengeAll day - The highest mountain in England. A real highlight of the day is traversing along the great bouldery flanks of Great End and Broad Crag on the famous Corridor Route. The classic Lakeland views are spectacular throughout the day, and there is a natural spa (of sorts) on the descent, as the rock pools of Styhead Gill offer a fantastic natural ice-bath for those brave enough to dip their toes!
Kinder ScoutAll day - This circular route is without a doubt the most fun and adventure you can have walking in the Peak District. The trek is perfect on a dry and sunny day, but equally amusing in the wet. Not only is it the highest point in the Peak District, but also, it is a deservedly adventurous hike worthy of its past fame. This walk is guaranteed to put a smile on your face and some mud on your boots.
Ben NevisAll day - Reach the lofty heights of 1345m by successfully climbing the Ben, as it is affectionately known. Your adventure will be accompanied by impressive mountainscapes which extend further still with every step you take. The final spectacular panorama from the summit, extending up to 120 miles in every direction, will soon ease any aching of the muscles.
Rock climbing and abseilingOur aim is to give you a thrilling and fulfilling day out on the rocks! We provide you with all of the tools, guidance and instruction needed to create a unique experience you’ll never forget. Whether you are a novice climber or seeking a new challenge, we'll set our ropes on routes as hard or as easy as you like. You'll also get to experience the thrilling rush of abseiling (rappelling).
Gorge Walking, Canyoning, Gorge ScramblingJump into refreshing plunge pools and down rock slides, scramble up boulders, and play in cascading waterfalls while discovering the thrilling activity of gorge walking. Your adventure starts by entering into the chasm on an exhilarating, free hanging abseil! Gorge walking is available every day of the year.
