We did the Via Ferrata Xtreme on a beautiful sunny day. Outstanding experience, very well run facility. Our guides Elt and Alana made the whole experience great and safe. They were friendly and happy to explain the workings of the mine and the history. Would highly recommend!

Myself and my lad did the Via Verrata experience. What an amazing day, gets a bit Hairy at points but just follow your rules and all great. The views are fabulous and the guide was great. All in all its a definite for the bucket list and a fantastic day out.

What is the infinity bridge

Appropriately named owing to its seemingly endless length (190 metres to be precise!), the Infinity bridge at Honister is the perfect way to push boundaries and quench your thirst for adrenaline.

Suspended 1,000 feet above sea level, this heart-racing experience provides a breathtaking view of the surrounding landscape.

Tackling the longest highwire bridge in Europe is sure to provide plenty of action, laughter and a true sense of accomplishment.

Not a fan of heights? No problem! Our experienced guides can provide extra support and encouragement along the way for those who are taking on the challenge to conquer their fear. Just mention this at reception and to your guide on the day. With their help, you can conquer your fears and enjoy this unique and exhilarating way to view the Lake District landscape.

We’re also pleased to offer spectators the opportunity to watch for just £7.50 per person.

If you have any questions about this or another of our activities, don’t hesitate to give us a call.
