Rock Climbing

Using a variety of sites around North Wales we can offer an allround experience of climbing.

Combined with abseiling it makes for a fun session set in the stunning Llangollen valley.

Safety is paramount on session and all participants will have a rigorous safety brief before taking part in the session.

Gorge Walking

Gorge Walking is a fun, safe, enjoyable activity that involves climbing up or walking down a river bed.

You may also need to jump into deep clear pools or slide down waterfalls during the course of your day.  We have two gorges that we use depending on age and ability.

Try Nant Y Frith for starters where the famous "Welsh Marmottes" live.

Or try Cynwyd for a bit more of a challenge.  Slides and jumps galore.

Open Canoeing on Loch Ness

A brilliant way of exploring the surrounding area. Using our two/three man open canoes we will take you on the picturesque Llangollen canal and show you the basics and play lots of games.

Safety is essential and we use the canal for the fact it is only waist deep for juniors and primary children.

For more adventurous we can do river trips on the Dee and surrounding rivers. North Wales has abundant rivers and lakes to choose from.

We can also run expeditions using Open Canoes to Scotland and further into Wales.


Bushcraft skills are a useful thing to know even in today’s modern climate.

You will learn a bit about firelighting, how to build a shelter and some basic food information.

More advanced courses can have overnight stays in shelters etc.


Similar to Open Canoeing but this time you are on your own. Again utilising the Llangollen canal the session will involve lots of games and some teaching.

We can also run more advanced sessions and also skills courses for those interested.


Generally an activity that is combined with rock climbing this is undertaken outdoors on natural rock. We use one of the finest venues in Llangollen with stunning views over the Welsh countryside.

The abseils vary in height and difficulty depending on the age and ability of the group.

Hill Walking

Want to sample the local area around Llangollen? In Llangollen alone there are miles of excellent trails to visit, the highlights being Castell Dinas Bran and Valle Crucis Abbey.

In Snowdonia there are more adventurous undertakings if you wish. How about Snowdon for starters?


This is one activity that everyone can enjoy whatever your ability. Have a go at playing Robin Hood for a while and see how many “golds” you can get. Or even try your hand at popping balloons or play one of our many games.

Archery is mobile so could be brought to your school.

Whitewater Rafting

The River Dee, Llangollen

This is one of the best whitewater rivers in the UK. Your session starts at the picturesque Horseshoe falls where you will meet your guide and be given all your equipment. Following an individual safety briefing you are ready to head out onto the rapids. As you travel down the river you will not only encounter beautiful scenery but a number of exciting rapids including the famous Serpents Tail and Town Falls in Llangollen.
