As complete beginners, and a mixed family group spanning ages 9 to 51 we were a little apprehensive about what to expect, having booked a half day climbing activity. But we need not have worried - Catherine could not have been nicer - mixing encouragement with reassurance. Our daughter came away with real enthusiasm to try climbing again (provided it... More

A brilliant day with a fantastic instructor. Not only we did we climb untill we could not climb any more, but we learnt all about the beautiful surroundings. Very friendly, welcoming and safety conscious. Thank you!

Jamie & Catherine were both excellent. Catherine putting up with all my questions before the day and both making sure we had a great day. There was 7 of us & everyone had an outstanding day. They made sure everyone knew what was happening & we were comfortable with the tasks & no pressure put on anyone. Thanks

Thanks for the wonderful day, it was the highlight of our adventure week in North Wales. Jamie was an excellent climbing guide and we all love his dog Peppa. We will be back climbing with you next year. Many thanks, Greg and Family

We were met in the car park of our hotel by Jamie and Catherine and followed them the beginning of the gorge. I would advise to have your swimwear on prior to... More

We booked North Wales Active for a gorge walk for 2 adults and 2 twelve year olds. Absolutely brilliant, we all loved it. Jamie was excellent, relaxed, very professional and knowledgeable, inspired confidence and trust. He gauged each of our abilities and very gently pushed each of us to feel like we had achieved something. Totally recommended - I will... More

As sea was choppy Jamie suggested climbing and we headed to a good climbing area near Llanberis. As both me and my daughter had some climbing experience, Jamie treated us to an impromptu class in...
