Hydro speeding A huge thank you to Lee and the team for a fantastic experience hydro speeding. The course was exillerating and very professionally delivered as it is not for the faint hearted. We were a family group of 12 adults and teenagers and everyone enthused about the experience although there were a few aches and pains the next day as the course is physically demanding - you need to be fit to make the most of it. An awesome experience delivered by a great team

Fantastic paddle boarding session I booked a SUP session for my husband and two children (ages 14 and 11) . Brian the instructor was absolutely fantastic with them, the session was a group session so 7 people in total. They had a fantastic day all thoroughly enjoyed it and all beginners. Brian involved everyone of all abilities and he managed to remember everyone’s names … he took great pleasure in joining in and making sure everyone had fun. Lots of games while learning paddle boarding technique. Would def recommend - it was that good I felt it necessary to review! We will be back Brian so you can have better luck next time at knocking our super balanced 11 year old gymnast off her board ! Thanks so much for a great day

Great fun, great guides, a great afternoon. Ghyll Scrambling 05/08/22 2pm. The lovely people at Keswick Adventures were welcoming, fun, organised, responsible, considerate, professional, witty and had their patter down to a fine art. The photographs and video Whats-Apped to us later that day were a fabulous memento and not something we expected before the trip. Lee and Ian made it both hilarious and (of course) safe and we had a fantastic time. Can't wait to try canyoning!

Fantastic adventure My 11 year old daughter and I had a fantastic time ghyll scrambling with Keswick Adventures. Our guide Lee was fantastic - knowledgeable, safe, and really fun - and afterwards he sent us great photos and videos of our adventure. We can’t wait to come back and do it again, as well as perhaps doing some of their other adventures like canyoning. Very highly recommended for anyone with a sense of adventure and fun!

Unforgettable Ghyll Scrambling Adventure I highly recommend an excursion with Keswick Adventures to any visitor to the Lakes looking for an exciting outdoor activity. The trip was wonderful. My family and I have been coming to the Lakes regularly for over 10 years and we’ve never had a day out like our Ghyll Scramble with this company. The scrambling guides were charming and funny and put us at ease, and did an excellent job showing us what to do and keeping everyone safe and happy. They also helped break the ice with others in the group which gave us a real feeling of camaraderie with people we’d just met that day. The ghyll scramble itself couldn’t be better placed: Newlands Valley is beautiful and the ghyll made for a very interesting activity including jumping off rocks, climbing on all fours, sliding, swimming and walking. The service overall was brilliant, it was easy to park and get ready with good facilities for changing and leaving belongings and the shuttle buses to the site were a great way to see the surrounding countryside. Would particularly recommend the Ghyll Scrambling to Lakeland fell-walkers looking for something different to do other than hiking. We’re hoping to come back and try the canyoning trip Keswick Adventures runs in future or bring some friends on the Ghyll Scrambling trip. Thank you Ian and Lee for looking after us all so well during our outing and for making it so fun.
