Share an outdoor adventure activity in the Lake District and create memories that last a lifetime.

The success of your day can be measured in smiles and laughs. If you're looking for things to do in the Lake District, there is no doubt that enjoying a day in the outdoors with Family members or a group of Friends or with a group is a great experience. 

For Stag and Hen groups, create stories to be retold later over a drink...or 2...or 3, or shared during the speech on the big day! If you're the Best Man or the Maid of Honour, let us take the hassle and organise some fun outdoor activities - leaving you to focus on giving your best friend the finest send off.

Every year my friends hook up to compete in our very own challenge event. This year we chose the Lake District as the location. We arranged to do the Via Ferrata Xtreme and Ghyll scrambling. Everything was absolutely brilliant! The events were awesome, timings perfect and the gear provided was spot on. Never thought being cold and wet could actually be so much fun! Keep up the good work. PS - cheers for the photographs!

Nathan - Via Ferrata & Ghyll Scrambling Participant.

Professionally delivered outdoor adventures for grown ups and little ones alike.

Everyone will enjoy the challenge - guaranteed.

Each member of your party will be challenged at just the right level. Groups can enjoy a wet or dry day of activities. We would highly recommend a mixture of both.
