As the name suggests gorge walking is a wet activity and best suited to the warmer months as you could literally be up to your neck in it! It involves following the water course up the hill, scrambling up small waterfalls, crossing deep pools or just simply walking in the water depending on the venue and age/ability of the group. Derbyshire may not be the Lake District or North Wales but what we offer is a unique experience of Gorge and Stream Walking with lots of fun and challenges a truly great outdoor activity. The only way to describe this activity is to say that it's like caving with the roof off, in the gorge, waterfall climbs, tricky rock traverses, rocky obstacles and plunge pool jumping are all a part of the fun. You won't believe how much fun gorge walking is until you've tried it! This is no Sunday afternoon paddle... not only must you conquer the fast flowing torrents and plunge into deep pools, there is also the hazardous white water to contend with! And if that doesn't take your breath away, the spectacular scenery of the Derbyshire hills certainly will. Challenge yourself on this exhilarating trail through the stunning gorges of the Derbyshire Countryside. Experienced guides will take you on a journey with a difference, as you scramble over rocks, negotiate the treacherous rapids and waterfalls - Lets face it, you're in for a soaking. This activity will leave you feeling exhausted, but exhilarated, soggy, but totally refreshed.
