SNOWDONIA GORGE WALKING & CANYONING WEEKEND
Try something new, push yourself and enjoy every minute of this exceptional water adventure in Snowdonia.
Bring your sense of adventure and be ready to push yourself… hard. You’ll work your way up gorges and through canyons, handling everything this challenging landscape and white water throws at you. Enjoy a side of Snowdonia that simply has to be seen… and experienced.
This trip is tough… and exhilarating too. You’ll be scrambling, climbing and canoeing along gorges and canyons. Our guides help you to stay safe and motivated at all times, plus we supply the equipment you need.
Are you looking for a challenge? Be inspired… this trip is for you. Tell us how much you want to be tested. We’ll build the perfect adventure for you.
It’s time to bring out your wild side.
Saddle up and brace yourself for an action-packed trip full of slides, jumps and white water!
We book you in around Llanberis. If you arrive early, you’ll find places to visit and stunning mountain views around you.
Wake up refreshed and ready to go. After enjoying a hearty cooked Welsh breakfast (or continental) you’ll take a short trip into the mountains. Your first epic day of adventure awaits! Meet your instructors and fellow adventurers at the start point given to you in your welcome email.
To start, we’ll hand out kit and give you all you need for the trip. This includes wetsuits, buoyancy aids, helmets and… courage! Don’t worry – day 1 is designed to ease you into it.
Ascending your way through the white-water world, we’ll slip, slide, scramble and climb our way up the gorge. Along the way you will be challenged, facing tests of nerve and character… the more you say yes the more we will push you!
Once we all arrive safely back at the vehicles we will change and head back to the campsite. Enjoy a well-earned drink and hot shower. Share stories over dinner and into the evening with your other adventurers if you wish.
Today starts as a repeat of yesterday morning, but with the addition of learning about and using harnesses, karabiners and cows tails… moo!
The second day of exciting canyon-based escapades begins with a dunk to get your wetsuit wet and working again. This is a new venue with very different challenges and experiences. The canyon consists of huge white water slides, abseils and massive jumps!
Test your nerve, learn how to abseil and feel the rush as you fly off vertical edges into the deep pools below. This canyon has a heart-pumping walk out so don’t worry about being too cold. No-one leaves this canyon walk out cold… trust us!
After the successful completion of our second day we will return to the campsite for our final debrief and to say our goodbyes over a nice cold drink!
