What is Canyoning?

Located in the heart of the Lake District National Park, our Canyoning adventures offer a chance to explore nature’s own waterpark. Conveniently situated just 15 minutes from our base at Honister Slate Mine, Canyoning is the perfect way to experience the breathtaking natural structures that make up this historic site.

Each of our canyoning sessions are led by a team of experienced guides, assisting you as you journey through waterfalls and abseil down rockfaces for an unforgettable adventure.

Please note that each session takes around 4 hours and will commence at either 09:30 am or 13:30 pm.

Sessions are for groups of up to 6. Please enquire for larger groups or private sessions.

Our canyoning trips are ideal for anyone over the age of 10, who has a good level of fitness and is confident about pushing their boundaries.
