Outdoor Activities in the Lake District,
Wales, Scotland and Europe

Rock Climbing Courses │ Caving & Water Sports | Adventure Days │Stag & Hen Weekends


Kendal Mountaineering Services (KMS) offer a range of bespoke outdoor activities, adventure days and mountain skills training courses. Our philosophy - to provide you with a fun, memorable and value for money experience.

We provide outdoor activity courses ranging from half day sessions to full or multi day adventures depending on what you want to do. All of our courses are tailored to suit your specific needs and objectives.

If you want a taster of one of our adventure activities or an introduction to a specific activity, book a half day or make it a full day and combine two adrenaline filled activities together.

These adventure activities are ideal for a Stag or Hen party looking for an event with a difference!


Group & Individual Outdoor Activities

We work with individuals or groups; see our Outdoor Activities section for the full range of activities on offer. Group discounts are available when booking over the minimum numbers. The bigger your party, the more you'll save.

We also provide skills training courses in navigation (map reading), climbing, scrambling, mountaincraft and winter skills. We offer training and refresher days for people getting ready for a Mountain Walking Leader assessment, Single Pitch Award as well as guided climbing, scrambling, and caving.

Please browse our website and we hope you like what you see. Check out our blog to see what we have doing recently. If you have any questions or would like to make a booking, give us a call or email us.

We look forward to working with you.
