Let’s look at this week’s featured canyon, coming from Lake District land !
Type of rock: volcanic
Best time of the year to visit: June to September
The Lake District has a vast array of beautiful scenery, but hidden away in its many mountain sides exist some jaw-dropping canyons. Fisherplace Ghyll casts a view over Thirlmere, whilst innocently cascading down the flanks of the Helvellyn Range. Carved within the Borrowdale Volcanic rock, are a succession of 10 + fantastic waterfalls: the tallest being 18m in height. There are also several water-slides and pools to jump and experience.
During your adventure experience, in which your adrenaline is sure to be flowing, you’ll be abseiling some 10+ waterfalls, over blind edges and into narrow slots. You will use a guided zip line to help you experience an underestimated waterfall into an open amphitheatre. The natural rock slopes, runnels and pools provide great opportunities for sliding and jumping..
Total time required (approach, descent, return): +/- 4hrs
Gradient loss: 140m
