Ambleside Climbing Wall
We are recommending this exciting new adventure so you can experience great indoor activities while you are staying with 4 Winds Lakeland Tipis.
As you may have heard there is a new experience that has opened in Ambleside only 3 miles from the tipi site. An indoor climbing wall, bouldering room, cafe and a vast selection of kit for all your outdoor and climbing needs. There is a room dedicated to climbing where you will find everything you need for the rack! The building is 5 storeys high with the climbing wall reaching 10.5m at its highest point. The store also houses the main expeditions logistics centre, from which Adventure Peaks can essentially offer a total, design-led outdoor experience - whether it's an Introductory Navigation Course in the Lake District or a full summit expedition to Everest in the Himalaya.
As well as the climbing wall, there is a bouldering room and from your comfortable seat in Cafe Altitude, you can watch the climbers on the wall through the glass viewing panels whilst enjoying a drink (or more!) For the cafe we have opened up the northern and western aspects with fantastic views and stunning panoramas across the fells, including Todd Crag and Loughrigg in the west, reaching right across to the Fairfield Horseshoe in the north.

We are recommending our friends at River Deep Mountain High so you can experience great outdoor activities while you are staying with 4 Winds Lakeland Tipis.
Why do outdoor activities with River Deep Mountain High? Outdoor activities and sports are the best way to get out and experience an adventure in the Lake District. Whether your level of adventure is stepping off dry land or stepping off a 20ft pool jump, we have a wide range of activities that we provide in the south of the Lake District between Eskdale, Coniston, Ambleside and Windermere. So whether it is as part of your holiday, weekend away or group event, we are sure our outdoor activities will be a highlight of your trip. We specialise in making our outdoor activity experience the best combination of route, content and equipment.
Other people tell us:
It’s because our instructors made them feel so capable, they did things they never thought they could.
That they loved the range of activities they could do with us.
That they liked that we could organize an exciting week of different activities for their family.
Everyone is welcome - no need for prior experience. We love introducing people to their first enjoyable experience of an outdoor sport as much as we love wow-ing committed adrenaline junkies. Adventure activities, outdoor sports, adventure sports, outdoor pursuits, extreme adventures: call it whatever you like, we have the right activity to suit you.
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.
During the winter months our favourite outdoor activities include Abseiling, Climbing, Mountain Biking, Canoeing and playing Archery.
Family Activity Bundles
Our family adventure activity bundles offer great value and service as we work with you to create a great week of activities during your stay in the lakes.
Family Activity Bundle Details:
Stay for a week or two in the Lake District and spend part of your time on a multi-activity programme put together by us that everyone can enjoy together. You simply tell us how much activity you want to do, any preferences on days and activities and we work it all out for you.
The family activity holiday prices include either 4, 6 or 8 standard activity sessions (e.g. 2 x full days and 4 x ½ days) that can be taken over your entire stay with a maximum of 2 activities within 1 day. A family should consist of at least 1 adult and at least 1 child (under 18) in a group totalling at least 3 participants. Family bundle prices may be available to families of 2 people, which may be granted when booking.
We feel our family activity bundles are perfect for families, including the fact that often not all members of a family want to do the same thing! We understand that there may be some in your group who do not wish to take part in any or as many activities as the rest. If you let us know who wants to do what then we can work out a mix of 4 and 6 session bundles, or, if they wish to join just one session, this is fine and would be charged at our usual activity session rates.
Prices are per person for a set of activities taken within a 14 day period and start from less than £29 per person per activity!
