Climb The Mine

Challenging and thrilling, Climb the Mine is an adrenaline-filled adventure deep inside the heart of a Lake District mountain. And it's the only one of its kind in England!

Climb the Mine follows the route of the original underground mine workings in Borrowdale. Complete with vertical climbs and rope bridge crossings, this wet-weather activity leads you deep underground to explore a secret world of hidden passages and magnificent caverns.

After climbing up into the roof of the mine itself - an experience once reserved for an elite group of miners - you will head for the grand finale, which sees you emerge triumphant to a spectacular view of one of England’s highest mountain passes.
