Lee Simpson, driven by a lifelong enthusiasm for outdoor activities, set up Keswick Adventures to share his love with others. After many years running adventures across the UK and Europe, the Lake District seemed the perfect place to set up.

A number of our activities are completely unique to us: we are the only hydrospeeding provider in the Lake District and work with our sister company, Hydrospeeding UK, who first brought the extreme white water sport to the UK. We also offer a secret canyoning experience in a Lake District location that’s unused by any other activity provider in the national park!

We pride ourselves on our enthusiastic and knowledgeable instructors, our top-quality equipment, and our top-rated activities.

We are a member of the Adventure Activities Licensing Authority (AALA) and have received a Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor.

“EXCELLENT! We chose this canyoning experience because of the reviews and it definitely lived up to them! Lee the instructor made our experience even better, this team doesn’t just throw you in and show you how to be safe, they are all part of the experience and keep you laughing the whole way.” Sarah, Google

“Wow, what a morning!! We did the ghyll scrambling. Our guide ..Lee, were brilliant. The whole experience from start to finish were awesome. All the gear were in good condition and kept us very warm despite the cold water. Very friendly n informative about the area and activities. Passionate about his work and committed to ensuring that his customers have the best time ever. Safety is paramount too. We won’t be going with any other company for our activities now. Very good prices for what you get. Can’t wait for our next activity.” Marie, TripAdvisor
