Mountain Journeys

Mountain Journeys offer mountain activities in the Lake District. Rock climbing, Abseiling, Gorge scrambling, Canyoning, Hiking, and Cycling


Having lived and worked in the Lake District for 17 years Mark & Kate, of Mountain Journeys, know the area very well.

We offer a wide range of fun and adventurous activities at levels to suit all abilities.
Guided walking – this can be a gentle valley walk through beautiful scenery or you may have big summits in mind. We can suggest lots of options to best suit. Scafell Pike is a must-do for many as it\’s the biggest, we can guide this too but can recommend many quieter mountains.

Rock climbing – the Lake District has so much history embedded in the climbing, with Wasdale Head and Napes Needle being the focus for many. Each valley here has so much to offer there is a dedicated guidebook for them all. Whether you’re looking for an introductory session, an indoor to outdoor transition, or have a mountain route in mind, we can help with all of it and know most of the crags rally well. Climbing is our passion.

Abseiling – looking for an adrenaline rush but don’t want the exertion, this is for you. Stand at the top of a 100ft cliff face, peer over the edge and feel the space below your feet. It\’s such a buzz. With our help you will safely cruise down the vertical walls, controlling your own speed and learning new skills. The venues we use for this are stunningly beautiful and worth a visit in their own right.

Canyoning – this is still a relatively new activity here in the UK, but all developed in Europe and throughout the world. We slide, jump and abseil down narrow ravines filled with fast flowing and crystal clear water. It\’s a huge amount of fun for the whole family (teens and older).
Gorge scrambling – a classic and still one of the best ways to have a blast here in the Lakes. Making our way up a rocky ravine by scrambling, climbing waterfalls and even some jumping into pools of deep crystal clear water.

Road Cycling – new for 2023 we are delighted to be offering guided road cycling in the Lake District. Whether it’s easy cruising alongside lakes, or tackling some of the mountain passes, we can offer an itinerary to suit.

All the activities we offer here in the Lake District are also available in the Costa Blanca region from December through to the end of February.

We cater for individuals, couples, families, groups of friends, and charity / corporate events.
There is no set lower age limit but we do require all under 18’s to be accompanied by their own parents.
