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.

All children under 18 must be accompanied by their OWN parent or LEGAL guardian. We run activities for couples, groups of friends and families. 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.

Open all year for winter canyoning and ghyll scrambling!

The 2022 winter season is underway seeing as though we are celebrating our 10 year anniversary – we decided to push the bar even further in terms of how superior our kit is to the competition. So here it is…

Winter kit provided:

  • Wetsuit Base Layer (3mm)  – This is a clean and dry 3mm neoprene base layer. This is the thickness most companies offer as their main wetsuit and we are using it purely as a base layer!
  • Canyoning Wetsuit with Hood (10mm) – This is a clean and dry two piece wetsuit specifically designed for this activity. It will give a combined thickness of 13mm (including the base layer) on your core. Just to put this into perspective – 5mm is classed as a winter wetsuit and ours is over twice that thickness.  Do not be fooled by companies saying they will double up and give you two suits – this just means their suits are terrible and thinner than they are advertising. You would not be able to wear two of ours, they are too thick and you wouldn’t be able to move. Also two of their 3mm or 5mm wetsuits is still thinner than our 13mm suits.
  • Wetsuit Socks (3-6mm)  – Two pairs of clean and dry 3mm socks. You are offered 2 pairs but it depends if you can fit both pairs inside your trainers. The reason we offer two thinner pairs as opposed to one thick pair is just in case they don’t fit inside then at least you will be able to fit one pair inside. 3mm is better than nothing at all.
  • Wetsuit Gloves (3mm)  – One pair of clean and dry 3mm wetsuit gloves. We don’t offer thicker and the reason is we like to offer second pair of rubber windproof gloves over the top of these to keep windchill out and offer grip. With thicker wetsuit gloves you cannot fit the rubber gloves over the wetsuit gloves which would leave you with slippy neoprene gloves that don’t offer wind protection and would also lead to holes in the soft neoprene.
  • Windproof Gloves (rubber)  – One pair of clean and dry rubber over gloves. Grippy and wind resistant.
  • Windproof Jacket – This is a clean and dry jacket that will be used when the windchill is below or close to zero. This will help keep any biting wind off your core. 
  • Buoyancy aidThis is used purely as added insulation when the temps drop below or close to zero. Its like getting a nice warm reassuring hug throughout the activity.

  • Specialist Helmet & Harness
  • Waterproof Container for Medication
  • All Equipment & Qualified Guide
