Outdoor Activities: Gorge Walking
Gorge walking, or Canyoning as it is also known, is everything your mother told you not to do in rivers. Jumping off waterfalls; abseiling down cliffs into plunge pools; sliding down rocks and, most of all, getting wet. We have a great range of gorge walking locations in North, Mid and South Wales. So whether you want to spend a more sedate gorge walk trip taking in some history, geology and breathtaking scenery, or would rather a full on adrenaline hit, we have the gorge walk location for you. Ideal for team building and great fun for stag and hen parties!!!!

Numbers On The Day
There is no minimum number required to run gorge walking.
There is a maximum of 8 participants per instructor. However, we are able to run groups of up to 40.
Due to the nature of gorge walking, we are unable to accommodate spectators at all locations. Please call to discuss your options.
All specialist gorge walking equipment is provided. You will need to bring: swimming gear, towel, long sleeve sweat shirt and an old pair of trainers or boots.
Gorge walking is available from April to the end of October. After these dates, the cold water temperature makes this activity uncomfortable no matter how thick your wet suit is!!!
