Enjoy a fun, unique and challenging adventure with this Full Day Gorge Walking experience.
Gorge walking is a high-adrenaline sport where you leap into a fast-flowing mountain stream and use the flow of the water to carry you downstream. It involves trekking through gorges, waterfalls and giant rock pools, while using a variety of techniques such as walking, scrambling, climbing, jumping, abseiling and swimming. Sound like fun? You bet it is!
At times you will be tackling streams just a foot or so deep, but then you’ll find yourself navigating rougher and deeper waters. You’ll swim through rapids, scramble over wet rocks, abseil down small cliffs, however, the real fun starts when you encounter a waterfall. There’s no question of going around it - You simply have to jump!
The day will begin with an instructor going over the safety aspects and planned route, before kitting you out with a wetsuit, harness and helmet, ensuring you are safe and comfortable ahead of your exhilarating water experience.
Gorge walking is one of the most demanding and exciting water activities you can partake in. And for the adrenaline-junkies out there, this is one activity you do not want to miss.

Yes I recommend this product.
This was a gift from last Xmas, which I had not got around to using. It was originally a "50 lap Karting session for Two" but having experienced Karting a number of times in the past and the approaching expiry of the voucher, I exchanged it for a "Full day Gorge walking for one". I was told that the value of the Karting was only £59 and that I had to pay an additional £20 for the Gorge walking for one. I did not think that the experience was worth £79 as the "Full day" activity only lasted approximately four hours. To be honest, four hours was long enough because even with two wetsuits on, we were all shivering with cold by the end. However, this does not excuse the fact that it was billed as a full day, not 1/2 day. The activity was extremely good fun, including sliding down wet rocks, an abseil and leaping off rocks into water pools. It allowed everybody in the group of 8 to safely do as much or as little as possible (you could walk around parts you were not happy with ) under the clear instruction of our guide. The downside to having only one instructor was having to wait shivering on occasion, whilst he retrieved the ropes. NB. even though the sun was out, it never reaches the bottom of the Gorge, so wear as much warm waterproof gear as possible !
