Great canoeing on the tranquill lake (Derwent Water), well arranged, guided, good activity. It can be more challenging with bigger wind, but we were lucky with sunshine and stillness.

John was very responsive from the start - answered all my questions and flexible in arranging our two half day activities which made me feel comfortable booking with him. Ghyll scrambling was lots of funs - unique adventure. Wet suits and jackets were very much needed! We also booked a climb in the mine with John. We were running late... More

What a great day! Ghyll scrambling in Keswick. Afternoon session lead by John (Woody). Something for everyone. More challenging exercises for the fearless amongst us and encouragement for the less confident. This would not ordinarily be my cup of tea - I don't like swimming or getting cold. But I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Good quality wetsuits and jackets... More

We went Gill Scrambling earlier this week. A fab time had by all (mix of ages from 15 to 50 ish). Woody our guide was great. Clear instructions beforehand as to where to meet & very reassuring & friendly, explained & demonstrated every stage clearly before making sure everyone got safely down the Gill. It was challenging enough without being... More

6 of us aged 12 to 45 years had a great time. You don’t have to be super fit, just not afraid of getting wet and having fun. John is a helpful and encouraging guide advising you which route to take. You do get the odd bruise and our feet were pretty cold by the end of it but 5... More

Our family group had a fantastic morning scrambling down Stonycroft Ghyll. It was an exhilirating way to start the day, meeting at 9.30am and changing into good quality kit, all provided by Mobile Adventure. The instuctor was really friendly and encouraging, building confidence in the youngest members of our group (age range: 9 - 47). The water was cold, but... More

We did the gorge walking up the Esk. Had great fun, the guide was friendly informative and filled us with confidence. He also took plenty of great photos of us both jumping swimming and climbing up the river. Thoroughly recommend these guys.

All 10 of us had a great day with Adam at Stonycroft Ghyll! Most had sore heads from the night before but they were soon forgotten about when plunged into freezing cold water! Would definitely recommend, and will most likely be back to do this again. Cheers!

We do a regular challenge each year, this year we chose the 10 peaks in the Lake District. What really impressed me with mobile adventure was the great communication from John and his team prior to the event, all questions were answered promptly and factually. The actual day was fabulous with a couple of great guides ('Still' John, Steve). Don't... More
