Family Adventures

Give the family an adventure you are sure to remember.

Choose from three different days of activity, based around four different mountain sports - rock climbing, abseiling, scrambling and navigation.

Navigation is designed as an 'escape room' event to keep the youngest members of the family challenged and entertained, but you'll be taught how to use map and compass along the way.

Alternatively, ask us to put together a bespoke day or half day to fit in with your requirements and time.

See more info on the day at the bottom of the page.

See our scrambling page for more information on what this is!

"Our day with The Lakes Mountaineer was the best day of our holiday!  We spent the day with Ben doing the Mighty Mountains family adventure, along with our 13- and 11-year-olds. Having never scrambled or abseiled before it was a great introduction to climbing, in the beautiful surroundings of the Lakes. The whole day was a fantastic challenge, completely tailored to our family. Ben was a brilliant guide not only giving us information about climbing but local history and geology too, I would thoroughly recommend booking an adventure with him." - Family of 4 after a Mighty-Mountains day, 2021.

You'll meet your guide at 9.30. For Mini- and Mighty-Mountains, you'll return to the meeting point for a lunch break and then meet again for the afternoon activity. The guide will decide which way round to do the activities, dependent upon the weather and other factors. For Mega-Mountains, you'll be in the hills the whole day. All days will end at around 4.30.

Rock climbing and abseiling : a 10-minute walk to a crag  where you'll get to try various rock climbs and an abseil or two.
Treasure hunt/navigation on Mini-mountains: this will be a slightly shorter session,  so more time will be given over to rock climbing. A valley walk will give the opportunity to learn various skills with map and compass to help find the treasure - the adults will learn lots too!
Scrambling: Mega-mountain scrambling will take all day and will be in the hills away from your car for the whole time. On Mighty-mountains, this half-day activity involves a 15- to 20-minute walk to a scrambling area and slightly longer walk back downhill at the end.
