What is your Extreme+ canyoning adventure like?

Our unbeatable Extreme canyoning adventure starts with an easy roped traverse over a deep pool. This leads to the first stunning waterfall and great a 15ft warm up jump. A short scramble and swim leads to the second amazing waterfall. Bigger than the last one and another jaw dropping jump.

The next challenge is the awe-inspiring 150ft + waterfall. This is why it is an extreme canyoning trip. Not many people dare come this far into this canyon. The breathtaking drop is tackled in 2 parts. First a roped via ferrata style traverse leads down and along small ledges. Next a massive abseil and drop into the waiting pure mountain water. Do you have the nerve to tackle it?

Following this comes a narrow shoot of water and the next fun 10ft jump and swim. More scrambling and cascading drops follow leading to the last exciting abseil. This is tackled with what is known as a guided abseil, half abseil half zipwire. This avoids landing in the powerful jet of water that shoots out from the base of the waterfall.

A short scramble and swim and its all over. Time to let the adrenalin levels drop and the relax. Extreme canyoning in Snowdonia ticked.

Who is the Extreme + canyoning trip suitable for?

This is our most committing and challenging adventure. A good head for heights is essential and also a willingness to push your comfort zone. There is a steep 20 minute walk out at the end of the canyon so reasonable fitness is required. It is usually completed by adults but adventurous teenagers should be capable

Absolute amazing time yesterday with Glyn and Nicola Jackson doing stage 3 canyoning. One hell of a view from the top and when you hanging over the edge on a little rope. - Liam Jackson-Murphy
