Know More about this tour

After meeting your instructor and the rest of the group, we will fit and put on the high quality full length wetsuits. We also supply waterproof jackets, helmets and some amazing Ghyll shorts! Then it time to take a short (10-15min) walk up old mine access track to the start of the Ghyll scramble.

There will then be a 5min safety brief, and a short explanation of what challenges will be coming up, depending on the current water levels etc.

Finally it's time to jump into the water, and after getting our balance after the first slide, we're away - sliding / jumping and climbing our way down the fast flowing river, taking on the many varied obstacles and challenges - dare you tackle the washing machine?!

Suitable for all, as long as you are confident in water - being a strong swimmer is NOT required, this activity is fun for all the family, or as a challenge for a group of friends or those out for a blast!

After approx. 1 hour, we will come out of the bottom of the ghyll, and after a short walk along a road, we will be back at the van to dry out, change and warm up!

The whole experience lasts between 2.5 - 3 hours depending on group speed.

    Superb experience. Exhilarating, exciting - took us all out of our comfort zone but all felt safe enough to do it. Both instructors were reassuring and encouraging. We were all exhausted at the end of it but happy and proud of ourselves!

    We had a very good time Ghyll Scrambling with Toby! Our 7 year old absolutely loved it and just the next day asked if we can do it again. All the equipment was provided and we weren’t cold at all ! Will be coming back

    Me and 8 friends did the Ghyll Scrambling and everyone agreed it was one of the best experiences yet. We were right at the base of Scafell Pike and the scenery was unreal - perfect setting for the activity. The instructor was great; very friendly and had the answer to whatever we asked about the activity. Absolutely would recommend this to anyone, but would love to try some of the other activities on offer in the future! 10/10

    Really good fun couple of hours and well organised. John is an excellent leader who makes the activity fun and keeps everyone smiling and confident. Arrived early and had all the gear ready for us to speed up the admin process which was very quick. There was only 4 of us in the group, me and a friend joined by a father and teenage daughter. The small group size ensured we weren't waiting anywhere and it all flowed very well and smoothly. The whole thing only took 2 hours. Hats offto the young girl who wasn't phased by anything and did it all without hesitation. We saw other larger groups who took longer to get through it but we didn't need to wait anywhere. We were apprehensive about the water temp but the wetsuits etc we used were very good and we didn't feel cold at all. The jumps into water are not huge but a couple of them do make you think for a second or two but it's all so much fun and well worth it. A must do activity to spend a couple of hours whilst in the Lakes.

    We had a great family day out ghyll scrambling at Stonycroft Ghyll. Easy booking process, good equipmwent and friendly, professional guide. We were pleased we booked an early morning trip when the ghyll was quiet before bigger groups arrived. All had a lot of fun sliding down the rocks and jumping into pools. Would definitely book with Mobile Adventures in future - will probably try out the Coniston trip next year

    Well organized activity. All equipment provided was an excellent standard. Instructor was very good and helpful. The instructor was there early and this allowed an early start for getting wet suits etc. sized and put on. Very busy Ghyll with other user also there but the Mobile adventure instructor worked with the others to make sure waiting was kept to a minimum

    I don’t know how I come across this activity but I’m glad I did. Adam and Finn (the dog) were great leaders. We all had a great time throughly enjoyed the experience. Using muscles we didn’t know we had, we were aching the next day but worth it.

    Great fun for my teenage boys. They were enthusing for hours after! Information, communication and kit were spot on and their instructor was super.

    The whole experience from booking the event, communication on the run up, meeting the instructor and the actual event was TOTALLY AMAZING. A massive thank you for a great day our family had a brilliant time which will be long remembered. If you are in the Lakes and looking for action give these guys a go you won’t regret it. Very professional, all equipment supplied, friendly people and a very efficient booking facility Top marks all round - WELL DONE keep up the amazing work Thank You so much for being totally FANTASTIC 👍👍👍👍

    This is amazing, highly recommend. From start to finish, Mobile Adventures were well organised, safe, friendly, professional and loads of fun. The communication was excellent. Ourselves and our 12 year old daughter really enjoyed the activity with the guidance and encouragement from John. We will definitely be back next year to do the scrambling again, and hopefully do some paddle boarding. Thank you so much.
