    Welcome to the Adventure Makers in the heart of The Adventure Capital in the Lake District.

    We are spoiled for choice for adventure locations, whether canoeing, kayaking, ghyll scrambling, canyoning, gorge walking, rock climbing, abseiling, caving, potholing, hill walking, mountain walking or enjoying archery in one of the most beautiful valleys in the world.
