The rewards of climbing in winter are extraordinary. The conditions, being harsher, make the success so much sweeter. If you're an experienced winter walker and want to take things to the next level then climbing easier grade gullies or ridges in winter might be for you.
For anyone wanting even more, we provide winter climbing courses based in the Lakes and Scotland, depending where the conditions are most suitable.
A great activity for people of all ages. Your instructor will teach you everything you need to know to be able to paddle as a tandem pair or solo on some of the most beautiful lakes and rivers in the country.
Explore remote islands and tranquil bays amidst fantastic scenery or venture onto a gently flowing river. The rivers we use are rarely paddled so this is the ideal opportunity to see a variety of wildlife - we might spot an otter, or an ellusive kingfisher or even catch a glimpse of an osprey.
** Minimum of two people. Individual climbing fee is £165
