Esk Gorge Scramble – fun for all the family


Plunge pool time - Esk Gorge Scramble

Esk Gorge Scramble

We're just back from another brilliant trip to the Esk Gorge. This time with the Carey family from Liverpool.

Dan, Kelly, Daisy, and Ben have been coming to us for activities here in the Lakes for I think 5 years now, with most years including a gorge scramble. For a while now we'd talked about visiting the much coveted Esk Gorge, but water levels and weather did play our way. Today it all came together though and we made it to the mighty Esk.

It was worth the wait though as Ben & Daisy are a little older they were able to fully emerge themselves in the gorge. Jumping in the plunge pools, even the BIG jumps, swimming against the flow, splashing about and generally having a whale of a time. I reckon mum & dad had a blast too, and will be pleased to have 2 very tired out kids tonight 🙂

There are many gorges here in the Lake District, most are really good, but if you're looking for the ultimate trip, look no further than the mighty Esk Gorge. It involves more effort, but wow the rewards are worth all of it and then some.

We feel privileged to be able to offer such amazing trips and we hope you will join us on one sometime soon.

Get in touch and let's make a date for an adventure. Here's the activities we can offer

Thanks for reading.
