Church Beck Canyoning

Church Beck Canyoning

Level 2 Half-day activities

Church Beck Canyoning session is solely for you and your friends/family.  You are NOT joined to any other group, this is a private booking just for you.

I can not recommend highly enough. Booked for a birthday trip for my husband and two teenage boys.

Will put us all at ease by his professionalism and expertise. He ran through all the safety procedures and was conscious of the social distance.
The jumps varied in height and difficulty and we climbed up a waterfall which was quite intense due to the flow of water. The boys loved the challenge of the bigger jumps into deep pools. I bottled the biggest jump but wills patience was amazing! I’m sorry I didn’t do it! He made a climb down which I did do with a smaller jump.
If you are looking for a post lockdown adventure this is the place to go, great communication, great location and staff. Thank you so much!

Had an amazing time and Alex was brilliant, especially with my youngest son. Fab experience!

Family Oct 2020

We signed up for an afternoon of ghyll scrambling and we weren’t quite sure what to expect. What we got was a fantastic afternoon – climbing up and down river banks, diving into the water (with wet suits!) and generally challenging ourselves under the watchful eye of Stuart …

“Church Beck canyoning”

Church beck Canyoning ….

This is the best half-day canyoning in the Lake District. Big challenging jumps into water pools, climb up through the waterfall using a rope for safety, slide down and launch!!!

As soon as we get into Church Beck and start canyoning the challenges start and never stop. We have rocky climbs above pools of water that you fall in if you can’t climb across. Always fun to see “who can do it”. We build up the challenge through the session.

Canyoning challenge level

This is level 2 canyoning as it’s a half-day, however, we have a totally flexible approach and can make this as super challenging as desired. This is an enclosed canyon and so when you’re in your in. It makes it really fun & enthralling.

We build up the sessions starting accessible observing, challenging & judging your skills before heading into the upper section where the full-on fun begins. There are options if you don’t feel you can do it but want the others in the group to continue so don’t feel you’ll hold your friends back. If you have questions about this please get in touch.

Canyoning duration

Half-day sessions run as follows:
Morning 9:30 am to 12:30 pm – Afternoon 1:30 pm to 4:30pm. That’s three full hours of activity.

Full-day sessions run as follow:
9:30 am to 4:30 pm. That’s seven full hours of activity.

We realise how valuable your time is and this reflects in our attention to giving you a full session. We always get to the meeting venue early arrange our kit and make sure we are ready to go. This enables us to optimise the contact time with you, giving you real value for money and attention to your experience.

Half-day activities are really fun and do combine very well with other activities. E.g. many people book rock climbing or abseiling in the morning and ghyll scrambling or canyoning in the afternoon.

These half-day combinations and our all-day sessions can be viewed here: Mix n Match options on this page here.

Church Beck canyoning

This canyon is based in Coniston. There is a user agreement that stipulates careful parking to help support the locals so please park in the “station yard” car park. We’ll send you detail directions on booking.

Station Yard Car Park

The kit we provide:

For all our ghyll scrambling and canyoning sessions, we provide full-length wetsuits with arms.  These are very flexible and comfortable. We have a wide range of sizes to enable a good fit.

We also provide helmets, harness and buoyancy aids where appropriate depending on which session you are on.

Do you need to bring anything?

Yes, please bring socks and trainers to wear during the session. These must-have laces and be proper shoes (do NOT bring slip-on water shoes).

Under the wetsuit please wear a swimsuit or underpants. If you have a rash vest, thermal top or football shirt, this will be a nice layer to wear but is not essential.
You will need a big towel for afterwards and lads don’t forget a spare pair of underpants.
And lastly, we ask everyone to bring a pair of shorts (ideally board shorts) but these are to give you some dignity and protect the bum of the wetsuit.
