About us and how we do 'outdoor activities'

River Deep Mountain High provides outdoor activity days for adult and family groups, in the Lake District. The many activities we offer can be done individually or combined together, we can also arrange lunch and facilitate your accommodation choice to an appropriate venue for your activities and group. We can provide a fun day out, a team-building get-out-the-office event or an adventurous activity week.

Outdoor activities are the best way to get out and experience an adventure in the Lake District. Whether your level of adventure is stepping off dry land or stepping off a 20ft pool jump, we have a wide range of activities that we provide in the south of the Lake District. So whether it is as part of your holiday, weekend away or group event, we are sure our outdoor activities will be a highlight of your trip.

If you’ve never done anything like this before, don’t worry – that puts you in the same boat as many of our other customers (quite literally). We offer comfortable equipment, friendly qualified instructors, a hot drink each session and run our activities at your pace. We will also offer tailor-made days and unique journeys to suit your needs.

Outdoor activities for your team event/corporate fun day

We can provide either one straight forward activity session, a combination of activities for a larger group or put together a special event with specific aims. We understand that maybe not everybody in your team is an outdoor activity enthusiast and have lots of ideas for a fun day whatever your outdoor activity requirements. We can cater for groups of 1 through to approximately 150 people on an event, and offer a variety of options from standard sessions, to challenge days or activities as part of a larger exercise.

Corporate Days out for Team Building

Family Activities

Family Bundles of 4, 6 or 8 activity sessions to suit the whole family.

We have a manned office from 9 till 5:30 Monday to Friday so please enquire because we would love to discuss your activity options for your group as well as give you useful advice on where to stay and arrange meeting rooms, please email with your group size and which activities you are interested in or what type of a day you would like us to organize for you.

All our outdoor activity sessions include elements of fun, learning new skills, going on a journey, adventure and coaching. Each session will have one of these elements as its main focus, either because the activity naturally offers it, (eg. Biking a journey), or to tailor the session to the groups aims. Be sure to let our office/your instructor know if there is something you would like to learn, do or have concerns about. We will always remember that you are doing the activity as part of your time off and so your enjoyment will always be our priority.

Open Canoeing

Open-canoeing or Canadian-canoeing uses wide stable boats and is a little like being in a rowing boat. They are easy to propel (unlike rowing boats!) and with a little instruction, mastered in no time.

Gorge Walking

Gorge walking takes you up a steep sided beck (Lakeland river), walking in the path of the water, scrambling over rocks, traversing above pools and climbing up waterfalls. Generally with gorge walking there are some ‘Jacuzzis’ and not so hot tubs en route, we swim across pools, jump in them and slide off rocks and waterfalls.

(Minimum age 13)

Kayaking uses boats originally designed by Eskimos for travelling on the sea. This in mind the boat is covered except for a hole around the waist. Our kayaks allow beginners to have some fun, learning skills on a lake and then maybe trying them out on a river in further sessions.

Abseiling involves lowering down a rock face with the ropes set up so that you are in control of your own descent. A challenge for all ages that is also an unusual, exciting experience you won’t forget.

Mountain Biking

At River Deep Mountain High we divide mountain biking into 2 forms: Mountain Biking and Trail Cycling. Both Mountain Biking and Trail-cycling are on off-road terrain but Mountain Biking has bigger ups, more full on downs, can be more remote, requires choosing a line and can be faster i.e. it has more technical terrain to heighten the challenge and excitement. (If you’re not sure where you fit into trail cycling and mountain biking, simply let us know your aims and previous experience and we’ll be happy to advise.)

Dinghy Sailing

You will be instructed in the use of your craft of choice (Sport 16, Wayfarer Topper, Pico, Laser, Omega, RS Vision) by an RYA qualified dinghy instructor, departing from one of 4 venues on either Coniston or Windermere. Instruction will be done with as much on-the-water tuition as possible. Quite often the instructor will be in the double-hander with you, if you are in a single hander the instructor will teach the basics from the beach then usually accompany you on the water from a safety boat. You will be instructed and not left! All abilities are catered for from complete beginners, right through to the club racer.

Canoe Sailing

With 2 canoes rafted together, we hoist the sail and let the wind do the hard work, leaving you to enjoy the experience.

Guided Walking

Allow us to take you along the paths less trodden in the full knowledge that you are led by a qualified mountain leader.

Guided Trail-cycling

Trail cycling uses mountain bikes to follow forest trails and bridleways and our routes are focused on riding through great scenery where the trend is downhill. There may be some uphill bits but these are always in short stretches with no pressure to perform record times.

For more information click here.

Rock Climbing

Rock climbing is a sport loved by many all over the country. If you would like to try climbing we can offer an introductory session that will include a few single pitches (not more than one rope’s length) suitable for anyone over the age of 10.

Archery harks back to Robin Hood, catching your dinner and the times when everyone in England had to be able to defend themselves with a bow and arrow. It can be one of the most peaceful and relaxing of our activities as you don’t really need to move very far but it is great fun and gives a great sense of achievement. We usually shoot in peaceful woodland nestled between Coniston and Windermere.

For more information click here.

Raft Building

Raft building requires everyone to work together to come up with a design, build the design and then to move it on the water. This is always lots of fun and with larger groups more than one raft can be built which enables races, tugs of war and other variations.
