Snowdonia is THE adventure destination. Nowhere else within the British Isles do you find such a high concentration of the best outdoor activities, set against truly breath-taking backdrops. With so many rivers and lakes, hills and mountains, caves and rock faces to discover, you'll never be short of a challenge! From coasteering to bouldering, abseiling to canyoning, gorge walking to orienteering, we’ve got you covered. Take to the water with rivers and lakes of every description winding their way through the countryside. Or make a splash off the coast, whatever your interests or experience. From rafting to kayaking, surfing and wakeboarding, we’ve got it all. And of course, Snowdonia is the perfect destination for climbers! North Wales's mountains, crags and sea cliffs offer world class venues for rock climbing, scrambling and mountaineering, and the terrain is perfectly suited to provide a variety of climbing options.
