A Bit About Us

Adventure North West is an experienced, highly professional, mobile family run 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 of 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. 

A number of sites that we run our water activities from 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 9.30am and 4.30pm.
