We had booked to go coasteering for the first time, but when we arrived and met Tim he thought the sea would be too rough so he took us Gorge walking instead (gorge 1)! You get soaking wet, freezing cold, laughed at and dunked! You will have the best time! Felt like kids again (in our forties), climbing rocks and... More

As a family of four, children aged 11 and 14, we had our own instructor for each activity. We tried kayaking, abseiling, gorge walking and coasteering. We found it challenging, out of our comfort zone, but we had a real sense of achievement and lots fun on the activities. Super instructors friendly, knowledgeable and did not make us jump in!

Went as a group of friends and carried out gorge walking and abseiling. In terms of gorge walking although it was ranked as gorge 1 it was certainly a fun filled activity with plenty of thrills and adventures. The instructors were warm and welcoming and motivated the group to do their best. Abseiling was great too where Tom and Cath... More

Went Gorge walking and abseiling with some friends. It was amazing and I loved it. Special thanks to the instructors Tom, Catherine and Rich who were brilliant. Very welcoming and friendly. We did abseiling after the gorge walk which was also great fun. Tom and Cat were very helpful throughout the day and made sure everyone had a good time.... More

17 of us went gorge walking with North Wales Active for my boyfriend's 30th and we had a fab time. Cat & Tom were brilliant instructors. Really patient with us all, and really knew their stuff. Would definitely recommend for a weekend away!
