Why Choose Crags Adventures?

Crags Adventures have been rated the No.1 canyoning company in the whole of the United Kingdom by our customers on TripAdvisor since we began in 2012. We specialise in Canyoning and Ghyll Scrambling and are one of the few UK companies that hold a "canyoning specific" guiding qualification as well as a "canyoning specific" rescue qualification. Our aim is to provide you with the highest quality adventures using the very best wetsuits and equipment on the market.

Whether you wish to scramble your way up or abseil , jump and slide your way down a gorge you will be sure to have fun and stay safe with us here at Crags Adventures. I guarantee we wont be beaten on quality. No-one in the Lake District offers a thicker or warmer wetsuit than us. In a world where some companies still dont even provide you with a wetsuit we are providing our customers with suits that are 3 times thicker than most of the ones that do. We have many ghyll scrambling and canyoning locations to choose from including some routes that are exclusive to our company.

Our activity range caters for most fit and able persons from the age of 10/11 years (140 cm). All children under 18 must be accompanied by their OWN parent or LEGAL guardian. We run activities for both adult and family groups including stag & hen parties, groups of friends and couples. We always tailor the activities to meet the requirements of the group and above all we will ensure you leave us with memories that will last forever.

2019 Season

What’s new for 2019?

We have invested heavily in excellent quality equipment over the past 16 month. If you pick ghyll scrambling/canyoning you will get a Seland wetsuit and Seland wetsuit jacket to keep you feeling warm in the water. You can’t underestimate the difference this makes, rather than enduring the activity you will enjoy it! We haven’t worn wetsuits of this quality before, they are really top notch. You know they’re good when you see your instructor wearing one! In the colder months we may also provide an additional cag ( windproof) to wear over everything to keep the wind chill out, turning ghyll scrambling into an all-year round activity.

Garland’s are sadly not provided but this stag do had the foresight and good fashion to bring along their own. 

Our customers:

In the 7 years Crags Adventures has been going we have had the pleasure of having many returning Customers. Some try different activities, different ghyll locations or are happy to keep coming back to do the same one.

We really enjoy seeing families coming back year after year and seeing the children grow up into young adults.

Some are probably after our job!

We have something for everyone. There are locations suitable for larger groups, locations suitable for families, locations suitable for the thrill seeker and for those also wishing to learn proper canyoning techniques.
