Canyoning, Ghyll Scrambling and Gorge Walking at Dave's Adventure Company
Possibly the most fun you can have getting wet. This covers a wide range of activities and involves going up or down (canyonning) mountain ghylls, streams, including small waterfalls and water chutes. These vary from dryer trips with more scrambling sometimes using ropes for support and safety to streams with boulder hopping and climbing around the water. Wetter trips are the most popular for this we use full well fitting wetsuits and buoyancy aids and depending on the size age and fitness of the group can go from smaller jumps, watershutes and watery cascades to full on waterfalls with big jumps, swims, plungepools, and other scary stuff that leaves you with a big grin on your face once you have done it.
Adults £65 per day £40 half day. Bespoke individual family day £240. Discounts for groups. Special rates for schools and voluntary groups.
