WHAT customers SAY


We ranged in age from 13 to late 40’s, mixed abilities and we all had an amazing time. Our guide Sam was brilliant and I consider it really good value for money

Sam catered really well for the entire family (2 adults and one 13 and one 11-year-old). We had a fantastic day canyoning in Coniston. Can highly recommend.


We had an amazing day Ghyll Scrambling at Esk Gorge with Lake District Mountaineering! Sam, the instructor was friendly and great at explaining how to do things! Highly recommend if you’re looking for an adrenaline fuelled day out!


I have used Sam on multiple occasions for a variety of activities & he’s delivered every time!
From Scrambling to Rock Climbing to Canyoning/Ghyll Scrambling & everything else outdoors Lake District Mountaineering is the company to book with
I would highly recommend to others! It’s been a pleasure working with Sam & his team


We look forward to hearing from you and working towards your mountaineering ambitions and helping to achieve your goals.
