Ghyll Scrambling & Canyoning

Two questions regularly asked are:
What’s Ghyll Scrambling? and Is it the same as Canyoning?


Ghyll Scrambling is the ascent of a mountain stream. It typically involves jumping into pools of water as well as scaling waterfalls and scrambling over rocks. 

The word “ghyll” is a Viking word that translates as “ravine”. The ghylls are a perfect place to find adventure.  

CANYONING is DESCENDING  a stream (coming DOWN)

Canyoning is a descent of a mountain stream that typically involves a combination of either some or all of the following: sliding, jumping, abseiling, zip-lining and being lowered on a rope down waterfalls.
