Choose from a combination of Honister’s best activities, from the 1,000ft Infinity Bridge, Climb the Mine, and brand-new freefall experience… the Jump; if you fancy something wild and wet, you can abseil 60 meters down one of the Lake District’s most famous waterfalls, or if you prefer something a little less strenuous, try one of our famous mine tours, or a scenic hike around Buttermere.
