'I went ghyll scrambling for the first time and I really really enjoyed it. The wetsuits and buoyancy aids were great, so we didn’t get cold or sink, especially in the deepest bits!' (Daniel Clayton, aged 9)

'We had a lovely time canoeing on Coniston. Brilliant instructors, felt very safe as we've never been in a canoe before. Great scenery, will visit again soon.' (David Sygrove)

'My husband and I have spent two brilliant days with Path to Adventure. The first was half a day of canoeing on Coniston Water. Al and Heather were both very friendly and professional and went at our pace. They taught me lots of new skills and we had a wonderful day. The second was canoeing down the River Eden, which was more technically challenging. We had lots of fun and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thank you Path To Adventure!' (Vanessa Conman)
