Go Ghyll Scrambling in Cumbria


Test your metal in Cumbria as you wade, climb, scramble and (sometimes) swim along its rivers, streams, pools and ponds.

Yes, it’s cold, and yes, you’ll probably swallow some water, but who cares? You’ll be wearing a 7mm neoprene wetsuit and running through waterfalls, clambering over slippery rocks and stepping into deep freshwater pools. It’s fun, it’s exciting – and with expert guides on hand to help – it’s extremely safe. Plus it gives you license to spend the rest of the day soaking in a hot bath, back at Howe Keld B&B in Keswick. Now that we know you’ll enjoy.
