What Can I Expect

Take the leap and go gorge walking in North Wales! Also known as canyoning, gorge walking has become an increasingly popular high-energy hiking activity over the past few years. Now here is your chance to have a go yourself. Dip your toes in on a taster and go walk those gorges!

This long-established outdoor sports centre in Llangollen provides an excellent starting experience in walking the local gorges for the budding adventure seeker. There is a whole range of gorge walks in and around North Wales that are just begging to be explored, each one guaranteed to raise your adrenaline levels.

After registration, the professional team gorge walking team will gather you all together for a full safety briefing, before you get suited up in your gear. All the necessary equipment will be provided, including wetsuits, safety helmets and buoyancy aids. A few scratches and bruises are to be expected, but the activity is designed to be as safe and enjoyable as possible, with (of course) exhilaration in bucket loads!

The naturally-carved gorges you’ll be discovering on these taster sessions are located about 20 minutes drive away from where you meet at the outdoor centre - and do keep in mind that you will need your own transport for the journey. Once you’re there, you’ll be literally going with the flow of the water, as you slide over slabs of rock and jump off natural ledges into the fresh Welsh water.

The gorgeous scenery of Llangollen, coupled with the thrill of canyoning in all that wonderfully clear, fast-flowing water will invigorate your senses. With waterfalls and rock gorges as your backdrop, you'll immerse yourself in all this amazing wilderness when you give gorge walking around North Wales a try.

we had to use our own bus because of the numbers. we were well looked after by the staff however it was a little short in time to think how much we paid. The majority of the party were local to where the activity was taking place and therefore were looking forward to it . We did enjoy ourselves and it was great fun, however we felt it was a bit expensive for what we got.

The gorge walking experience could best be described as a taster which was not made clear on the information. It was a little tame for myself and my partner as we were expecting abseiling down waterfalls and hoping for something a little more adrenalin fuelled but it was basically walking down a river, jumping into 3 pools and a few short slides. This is gorge walking for beginners and that needs to be made clear on the description as we were disappointed overall. On a more positive note I thought our guide Phil was excellent.
