Gorge Scrambling

Or Ghyll Scrambling as it's known in the Lake District! This is North Wales answer to canyoning for kids; loads of fun and adventure at a more child friendly pace. This trip is specifically for families with young children, the ideal age is 4-9 years (older than this and you definitely want to be on the canyoning trip). The features are all avoidable and the trip's pretty relaxed. This is the best rainy day activity in North Wales; once you're in a wetsuit the weather doesn't matter!

What to Expect

Snowdonia offers the perfect environment for gorge scrambling; interesting cascading rivers and plenty of rain! Depending on what the water level we may go up or down the river. Exploring the less committing parts of the normal canyon, we play on lots of slides and cascades, swim the pools and there's a jumping in area. It's great fun splashing around and we make sure everyone's warm and safe with a thick winter wetsuit, buoyancy aid and helmet. Quite often Sparky our adventure dog comes along to join in with the fun.
