Water Based Adventures

Ghyll Scrambling (Gorge Walking)

Our ghyll scrambles/gorge walking sessions are suitable for most fitness levels. These sessions involve, scrambling up and over rocks in waterfalls and taking part in little water challenges along the way.

Canyoning

Our canyoning trips give our customers the opportunity to experience adventure and adrenalin by the bucket load! For this activity customers scramble up and over rocks in waterfalls. Ropes and harnesses are used when venturing up the more challenging sections. 

Canoeing

Paddling in our open Canadian canoe, allows you to take in stunning lake district views. Our canoeing sessions offer our customers the opportunity to develop paddling techniques, as well as, to take part in fun and games on the water. During the warmer months, our canoeing activities often result in getting wet (wetsuits are provided), whereas, throughout the colder, winter months we tend to keep our customers dry.

KAYAKING

With our qualified kayak coaches, we can support you to develop your kayak skills.  We can take your group paddling on a journey around the lake or along a short, slow river. Our kayaking sessions can also incorporate some little challenges and kayak games whilst out on the water.

STAND UP PADDLE BOARDING (SUP)

We give our customers the opportunity to try out stand up paddle boarding. This can be a full session or mixed with our other paddle sports activity sessions.

RAFT BUILDING

This is the ideal activity for groups of 4 or more who want to challenge both the mind and body.  The aim of the session is for you and your group to work out how to build a raft using only wooden spars, barrels, and rope. So, think carefully about how you build it, otherwise you might end up with a different view of the lake – when you are in it!

Land Based Adventures

Archery

Have you ever felt like learning a new skill? Why not get hands on with a bow and arrow in one of our half day (3 hours) archery sessions.
Safety is paramount to Adventure North West and our instructors will always brief you on all necessary safety protocols around the activity prior to you beginning.

Bush Craft

Our basic bush craft sessions can be included within some of our other activities. The sessions involve setting up camp and making shelters, learning fire lighting skills, preparing fires to cook on, toasting marshmallows, making popcorn and a hot drink.

This is a great extra to add to a canoe trip.

A Bit About Us

Adventure North West is an experienced, mobile, outdoor pursuits company. Our qualified instructors deliver a wide range of fun and exhilarating activities in the outdoors, within the North West. We are fully insured for all the activities that we deliver and provide all necessary safety equipment.

The Coniston area of the South Lakes, along with Langdale, near Ambleside are the locations where we most frequently deliver our activities. We also offer climbing and abseiling opportunities within the Chorley area of Lancashire. On occasions we use alternative locations or venues to run our activities. Adventure North West would always check the suitability of a new site prior to agreeing to deliver activities from them.

Adventure North West sessions are generally private bookings. Offering private bookings allows us to provide a personalised, tailored experience for our customers. This also enables our customers to choose their preferred activity, date and time (subject to availability at the time of booking).

The sites where we deliver our water activities are public areas, therefore, we provide changing tents for our customers to use when changing in and out of our wetsuits. Our operating times are between 9am and 4.30pm.

Adventure North West’s owner and Senior Instructor Tim Nicholson grew up in the Lake District and has worked in the outdoors for over 25 years, gaining a vast amount of experience and qualifications in the outdoors.

Tim has also worked for many outdoor providers and development training centres and gained a lot of group experience with events organising.

Our Covid-19 Response

Adventure North West are committed to helping to stop the spread of coronavirus (Covid19) and we are following government guidelines and regulations. Adventure North West cannot be held responsible should any customers contract coronavirus (Covid 19) during the activity.
As with many companies our business has been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and we have needed to make allowances and introduce systems that can allow us to operate as safely as possible during this time.

Our efforts have been recognised and approved by The National Tourist Board’s Visit England and we have been given the “We’re Good to Go” Green Tick of approval.
To try and keep our customers and our team as safe from infection as we believe we can, we have installed the following measures:

1) We only accept private bookings to ensure we can adhere to the current government guidelines regarding Covid 19.
2) We adhere to all the up-to-date government guidelines regarding Covid 19.
3) All equipment and kit are sanitised after every session.
4) Equipment is never shared amongst different groups during concurrent activities unless it is sanitised between sessions.

We reserve the right to cancel any booking or disallow participation from any individual that we feel does not follow guidelines or endangers the health and safety of any other members of the group or our team.

Customers will be expected to have up to date knowledge of, and adhere to, the current social distancing guidelines when doing our activities. It is also an expectation that customers will wash their hands with soap regularly when possible or use hand sanitiser when hand washing is not possible. If a group member (or any member within their household or bubble) displays any of the following symptoms: a persistent cough, high temperature, loss or change of taste or smell, they must isolate for 10 days and members of their household for 10 days. If these symptoms occur within 10 days prior to your activity, your activity will be cancelled, and a full refund will be offered to your group. The government have stated that companies should assist NHS test and trace by providing customer’s contact details should the NHS test and trace request it.
