LANGDALE GHYLL WEEKEND

by Adventure Solos

OVERVIEW

Find like-minded people and make new friends on the Langdale Ghyll Weekend by Adventure Solos. This is a social event designed specifically for solos, with beginner-friendly outdoor activities in the Lake District throughout.

Ghyll is a Norsk word used in the Lake District (inherited from the Vikings) that means 'mountain stream'. Challenge yourself with a ghyll scramble where we provide you with wetsuits, buoyancy aids and other equipment then follow the ghyll upstream. There are plenty of fun challenges along the way, including plunge pools, slides, scrambles and waterfalls.

Other activities during the weekend include canoeing or kayaking on Windermere, the leap of faith high challenge, and a vertical assault course. All specialist equipment is provided throughout the weekend, as well as accommodation, various meals, professional instructors for activities, and of course an Adventure Solos host who is present throughout the event.
