Outdoor Adventure Activities and Sports
River Deep Mountain High Outdoor Activities provides a range of adventure sports in the Lake District. We specialise in fun for families, group adventures and team away days.
This has been our motto since we started offering Lake District activity holidays 10 years ago. Since then we have improved many aspects of our service and facilities but we have always maintained offering excellent adventures (insert guitar solo here!) in the Lake District with a friendly knowledgeable voice taking care of you in the office.
We don’t offer our outdoor activities and holidays through any agents, you can only book our outdoor activities if you…
All our activities have live availability info direct from our office database and you can request new dates and activity sessions at a time to suit you.
We've had some great Trip Advisor reviews over the last few weeks and we've just received a certificate of excellence for being in the top 10% in the world! How nice! read more

Why do outdoor activities with River Deep Mountain High?
We specialise in making all our outdoor activity adventure experiences the best combination of route, content and equipment. For example, we do our gorge walks in the best rivers we can find and give a variety of options, we make our gorge walks maximum fun and challenge by being directly in the water from the start and including jumps and slides, and we provide wetsuits as standard so that you’re getting stuck in rather than thinking about the cold. We were the first to do this and we will always try to make outdoor adventure holidays the most fun they can be.
You can stay and play at the Waterhead Hotel in Coniston. We have a great facility at the hotel with lake-based activities, archery and team building available by walking out the door! We have a changing room, fabulous grounds and all the hotel facilities right on the lake - an amazing combination. Read more here.
