LDM offers full adventures days for groups, families, stag & hen parties.   These days are bespoke and tailored for your group.  

We will supply the same instructor for the full day. 

The day runs from 9:00am - 4:00pm and includes two activities, with a lunch break in between.


This day is based in the North Lakes, and is good for those staying close to Keswick, Bassenthwaite, Buttermere and their surrounding areas. 


On the day, you will meet your instructor at Honister Slate Mine 

Via Ferrata translate from Italian into English as 'The Iron Route'. 

This activity is adopted from WW1 - when troops and munitions were moved around the mountainside using ladders and cables. 

Today, Via Ferrata is a recreation and allows climbers and non climbers alike to explore these high mountain cliffs, whilst always being attached to a safety cable.

After lunch, the instructor will take you canyoning in Stoneycroft Ghyll

There is a change in location for this - we will supply a meeting location for the afternoon, or you can follow the instructor to the next venue. 

Stoneycroft Gyhyll is an aquatic canyon, and you will be fully immersed in the water all the way through the trip. 

There will be full demonstrations and safety briefs of how to slide, jump and descend appropriately to move safely through the environment.

We will descend using natural rock slides and toboggan runs, jump into the corkscrew and splash around in some of the clearest water in the Lake District. 

The experience can be tailored to the group, allowing for easier and harder variations depending on age and ability levels.
