Kendal Mountaineering Services tailor their many activities to what you want - a unique selling point in this field. You can choose from a vast range of activities, skills training courses, and challenging pastimes. But the point is that the level of challenge (and risk - controlled risk of course; these guys are experts, so it might be better to say "difficulty") is exactly what you want it to be. The company is based in Kendal on the edge of the Lake District National Park, and much of what they do takes place in the area.

They also take people to the Yorkshire Dales National Park, The Peak District, North Wales, Scotland - and, once again, it's you who decides where you go and what you do to enjoy yourselves. Make no mistake, the sense of adventure and challenge (and the incredible feeling of achievement afterwards) is can stretch yourself like you've never been stretched, or you can try things you never thought you'd be confident enough to do. To say they offer a comprehensive range of activities hardly does justice to the choice, which includes:
