Ghyll Scrambling and Gorge Walking in the Peak District

Get wet and go wild in the heart of Derbyshire!

Gorge walking in the Peak District is exhilarating fun, perfect for the whole family or your hen and stag do. Test your nerves as we jump in natural pools and scramble up waterfalls. Experience the ultimate adventure activity in Derbyshire, while taking in spectacular scenery.

You’ll feel refreshed as we swim and walk our way through the clean, clear water that filters through the peat bogs of Kinder Scout. We don’t normally meet too many people in this part of the world, just the odd inquisitive sheep! The scenery is a true highlight of this gorge scramble, and we’ll take our time to savour the views.

This is the ideal wet weather alternative (and just as good in the sunshine) when you are looking for an exciting activity to do on your holiday in the Peak District!

We tailor our sessions to your aims and objectives so whether you’re looking to try out gorge walking for the first time or you’re an experienced adrenaline junkie looking for your next thrill, we’ll make our gorge walking session fit you perfectly.
