Canyoning is a great activity to push your boundaries while appreciating striking landscapes. Set in the picturesque Lake District National Park, you’ll make your way along the course of a waterfall, abseiling down sheer faces and scrambling over rocks whilst taking in magnificent mountainous scenery.
Honister offers canyoning experiences at £80 per person for groups of up to 8 people. Please enquire about larger groups or private sessions, as costs will vary depending on your requirements.
Unlike canyoning, which often involves navigating greater heights, gorge walking takes you on a journey along a river. You’ll have the opportunity to jump, slide, and explore the river’s course, either upstream or downstream. Canyoning offers an even more exhilarating and adventurous experience compared to gorge walking. With canyoning, you’ll have the opportunity to navigate through more challenging terrains, including greater heights and deeper waters, for an adrenaline rush like no other.
While “Canyoning” and “Canyoneering” may sound different, they essentially refer to the same outdoor activity. The choice of terminology is often influenced by cultural preferences. “Canyoning” is widely recognised across the globe, while “Canyoneering” is favoured in the United States.
Canyoning typically involves navigating larger, more technical canyons with significant water flow, often requiring specialised gear like ropes and harnesses. In contrast, ghyll scrambling, popular in the Lake District and other UK regions, takes place in smaller streams, offering a milder and more accessible experience suitable for a wider range of participants.
