Itinerary

* Please note: Itinerary is subject to weather and availability.

We'll be flexible during the week to make the most of the weather, and ensure that you have as much fun as possible. During your stay you may have the chance to have a go at some of these activities:


- Rock climbing: Learn to control each other’s safety rope, as you take turns to climb the crags and ledges of a rocky cliff. We also have an indoor wall for evenings or bad weather.

- Bouldering: Shorter climbs on big boulders without ropes, where you are free to just do it.

- Orienteering: Race to find points around the woods, using a map and compass.

- Sea-level Traversing/Coasteering: Journey along the rocky coastline, just above the sea, or dangle over the waves as you cross by rope.

- Canoeing and Kayaking: Try different types of paddling on the lakes carved out by the mountains.

- Mountain Walk: Reach the summit of one of Snowdon's famous peaks.

- Gorge Walk: Scramble up the rocky bed of a river, climbing, wading (and maybe swimming) your way between obstacles.
