Canyoning is one of the fastest growing adventure activities in Snowdonia and indeed the whole of the U.K. It is a real crowd pleaser.
Steep mountains, coupled with rain make Snowdonia and Wales the perfect place to try this new adrenalin sport and experience a real canyoning adventure.
Canyoning is a thrilling mix of swimming, sliding, abseiling down waterfalls, jumping and even zip wiring.
A wide range of canyoning venues means we can tailor the experience to cater for everyone from the real adrenaline junky to the less gung ho.
Our canyoning trips take place in some of the most dramatic canyons and gorges that Wales has to offer. Canyoning is a great way to see these otherwise hidden gems of Snowdonia. Many of the canyons and gorges are even set in temperate rainforests.
We know that being cold isn’t fun so we provide all participants with top quality winter wetsuits, wetsuit socks and when it is a little chillier neoprene gloves and canyoning specific neoprene jackets with attached hoods. This means we can go canyoning year round.
Safety is of utmost importance so we provide top quality canyoning specific harnesses and canyoning specific ropes. We also provide helmets and buoyancy aids.
All our staff are fully qualified outdoor instructors and guides and have years of experience in our canyons. This helps keep you as safe as possible and makes for an enjoyable day.

What Is The Difference Between Gorge Walking & Canyoning?
Gorge Walking is usually a walk up or down a river with small jumps and slides. Canyoning is gorge walking on steroids – only a descent is possible and involves more ropework including jumps, slides, zip wires and harnessed abseils. Normally, it isn’t possible to ascend a canyon. Here in the Snowdonia, we are proud to offer both activities.
What's The Day Like?
We usually meet at a prearranged spot near the Canyoning venue. Before getting started, our guides will kit everyone out in a wetsuit and helmet, making sure you are comfortable during the canyoning or gorge walking experience. We will then give you and your group a full briefing before hitting the water. You will spend the day climbing, leaping, sliding & splashing your way through fresh Snowdonia water in an exciting mountain environment. Canyoning is a real crowd pleaser and is perfect for any occasion. Family days out, Stag and Hen Trips, Corporate Days, Birthday Celebrations and much more!
