Have you got a big appetite for adventure but also want to dive into the rich history of England’s last working slate mine?
Why not save money and try our super value all day pass Xtreme!
Including the Via ferrata Xtreme and our new multimedia Kimberly mine tour!
Via Ferrata Xtreme was introduced at Honister in 2012 to bring a much more challenging (and some say scary) Via Ferrata experience. You do need to be reasonably fit and healthy for the Xtreme.
The xtreme has much more mountain than the classic: Traverse your way across Honister crag and edge your way across our Burma bridge over bull gill our big mountain gorge, then to top it all off scramble up the huge Cargo Net to reach the summit of Fleetwith Pike and feast your eyes one of the finest views the Lake District has to offer; Buttermere, Crummock and Loweswater, perfectly framed by Alfred Wainwright`s favourite Fells, see these spectacular Lakeland fells roll out before your very eyes. (Weather dependent)
Once you’ve got your adrenaline pumping on the Via Ferrata Xtreme why not Go Deep Underground on our Historical mine tour! And experience Honister’s rich mining history for yourselves! Immerse yourself in our underground tunnels and caverns on the magnificent Honister crag and experience first-hand what life was like for the miners through the ages, listen to the story of 8-year-old John Taylor and learn how Slate mining at Honister progressed. Perfect for wet weather! The highlight of any visit to Honister Slate Mine must be our fully-guided underground tour!
