Attraction details
Owner description: Liquidfriction Adventure centre offers not only amazing adrenalin filled activities off site such as canyoning, white water rafting, coasteering and many more, but onsite activities too such as our jacobs ladder and other high ropes challenges. Based in the Afan forest our grounds offer amazing views and scenery, which are a perfect location for our log cabin and dorm room accommodation, bar, restaurant and pool which can be used by both day visitors and guests staying with us.

What ever you do, make sure you go canyoning with these guys. We booked this at the last minute and even with short notice the guys at LF accommodated us. We didn't know what to expect from the days canyoning and what we got was the best outdoors experience we could hope for. Right from the start you are jumping head first into waterfalls, sliding down rock pools and working your way towards jumping of crazily high cliffs! So much fun.

You can see from the start that the guys at LF are all about canyoning safely but at the same time maximising the thrills. I think to sum it up they love the river and the activity they are doing with you so they want to make it the most fun possible. They even take loads of pics of you without then wanting to charge you any more for them.

It's true that there is a short drive from the briefing centre to the river location. However when you get there you can see why. The location is a beautiful one in the Welsh countryside where it would be a crime to have any kind of building. The review earlier about the drive is harsh and only about a 15 mins drive which is well worth it. Especially when you think about the price of the activity.

All in all we can't recommend canyoning enough. Im going to go again next summer with the guys.

Several friends and I were looking for something different and came across Liquidfriction Adventure's 'RIVER TUBING'. We have all been on outdoor activities with other providers and non have came close to what Liquidfriction had to offer. Firstly, we were greeted at their very impressive HQ by friendly and enthusiastic staff, where we joined the rest of our group for the day. Here we were all briefed and issued wet suits (all were clean and well maintained). We then travelled approximately 30 minuets to the activity (of which I found perfectly acceptable). Here the staff swiftly and professionally organised us and set us up for the activity. Ross and Paul kept safety first and also demonstrated each activity (even the pros fall out). The whole event was most enjoyable and very professional, no other provider has or can offer what these guys do. Tubing is a must. We are already booked for Canyoning in a few. Fingers crossed we get the same experience. CHEERS GUYS!!!!

Great setup, knowledgable and enthusiastic staff, and the river itself (although quite low today) had enough life in it to give us all an exciting and memorable day. Nicely done.

As stated in the previous review, you cannot fault the guides/instructors enthusiasm for the activities but there were several disappointing factors.
Once you get to the headquarters/base you are responsible for getting yourselves to the location where you are to undertake the activities, this is not highlighted prior to booking nor can I see it anywhere on the website? This proved problematic with large groups, meaning several vehicles had to be driven to required site; ours in particular was a two hour drive away.
We were told that we couldn’t do certain activities due to weather constraints (this is fair enough, weather conditions are out of their control) only to find the next day that another group was doing the activity that we originally requested – felt as if we were doing what the instructors wanted to do rather than what we wanted.
One of our group had an item of clothing go “missing” (expensive pair of Under Armour shorts) from HQ/base, the instructors weren’t helpful at all and didn’t care, we had our time with them and all they were concerned with was the next group.
As again with the previous review, we haven’t received any photos and can’t get a reply from them.
