“Guiding, Instructing and Leading individuals and groups in the outdoors is what we do”
Rock n Ridge is based in the Lake District national park, which is now a Unesco world heritage site. We provide outdoor training and guiding in the mountains of the UK, Europe, and the Himalayas.
We regularly work in different parts of the UK, and often deliver courses in Snowdonia, Cairngorms, and the Peak District national parks. Our team events are generally delivered in the UK. but have also been delivered in Europe.
We work with individuals, groups and teams, and pride ourselves on customer service. We actively listen to our customers feedback to continually improve our services and products.
See below for some of the common questions that are asked about our trips: See more…
How Long are the sessions? “A half-day session will be approximately 3/4hours in activity time. A full day would be double this”
What will I/we be doing on our day, and what are we likely to see? “This depends on what you book, we can help you with this. If you booked on a Rock Climbing session combined with a Via Ferrata trip say, then we would assess the weather and try and fit the sessions to fit round which works best in the dry/which is ok to do in the rain. There are always options.
There will be plenty of time to take pictures wherever you are. The Lakes are beautiful and we cherry pick the spots for you to enjoy and remember. Our instructors will ask you if you mind being photographed, and if you give your consent, we will take the pictures for you whilst you just focus on enjoying yourself. We can then forward them onto you after the day is finished”
What equipment do we need to bring? “This depends on the activity. Ghyll/Canyon scrambling for example we would ask you to bring a towel and some swimming shorts/board shorts, all other kit will be provided including when appropriate a wetsuit to keep you warmer whilst in the water. We will advise you what you need to bring when you book for each activity, and generally send a pdf kit list.”
Do you provide food and drink? “Yes we can do this for an additional charge, but usually clients bring their own lunches and drinks. There is generally a shop or cafe whilst out and about for you to drop in and get something, please double check this before your activity starts.
Where do you operate from/where do the tours depart? “We are Lake District based, but as mentioned we work in different parts of the UK. Our Lake District activities will usually depart from Windermere, Ambleside, Grasmere, and Keswick. Although depending on the group and where you are staying, we depart/meet to suit the group”
