The ‘slide of no return’. Sometimes no means go; you’re committed on this one. The good thing about this feature is, whilst sitting there on the edge at the top, you can’t really see what you’re letting yourself in for. This is lucky really, because if you could, I think we would have a much harder time sending people off it! This is the only really committing feature on our Canyon Xtreme trip, and a lot of people will agree that’s its the most fun bit of the adventure! . Come and join us, face your fears, experience a real life adventure in Snowdonia and come and see for yourself what canyoning is all about! . #snowdonia #northwales #canyoning #barmouth #canyon #experienceadventure #betwsycoed #harlech #dontlookdown #northwalesadventures #snowdoniaadventures #canyonxtreme #slideofnoreturn #river #waterfall #bleanauffestiniog #zipline #getinvolved #holidayinwales #adventureinwales #easteradventures #stagideas #henideas #stagdo #henweekend

Everyone knows Mr Sparks is the best adventure dog ever. If you come out with us chances are Sparky’s going to be part of the adventure too. Even if you don’t like dogs, you’ll probably like Mr Sparks! She loves coming down the river, swimming in the pools, chasing sticks, sunbathing at the crag, and being chief navigator on the front of a kayak. Maybe you’ve already met Sparky before? Was it a good trip?! . #adventuredog #labrador #mrsparks #sparky #dog #extremedog #mansbestfriend #canyon #canyoning #nodogs #dogkisses #labradorretriever #labsofinsta #labsofinstagram #wales #snowdonia #dogwalk #dogatwork #familyadventure

Keeping it Xtreme, international style. It’s nice to be out on the skis again for a weeks trip to Andorra! We’re in the GrandValira ski area; the snows nice, the suns out and the beers are cold 😃it was a nice run home yesterday down the World Cup track. It would be pretty exciting hitting this run flat out, there’s a few big steep corners in there!! . #andorra #eltarter #ski #skiing #snowboarding #andorralavella #skiandorra #mountains #snow #springskiing #worldcuptrack #blackrun #grandvalira #familyskiing

We didn’t have to tell him twice. The optional full sender on our Canyon Xtreme trip. We don’t use the word ‘Xtreme’ as a joke!

We’re safe, professional, experienced and if you’re up for it, we can guarantee you’ll have a great time 🤘💦🎟 . #snowdonia #canyoning #adventuresinwales #walesacticivities #walesadventures #walesadventure #canyon #betwsycoed #dontlookdown #cliffjump #waterfall #activitiesinwales #adrenalin #justsendit #igerscymru #onefortheboys #fortheboys #goinggoinggone #wales #northwales #northwalesactivities #experienceadventure #snowdoniaadventureactivities #nature #river #gorgescrambling

There’s gold at the end of that rainbow 🌈 that’s a fact we can confirm! We experienced the first rain-shower of 2019, and it lasted all of an hour. It was quite nice really, the sound of the drops on the leaves, the smell of the palms and soil; it’s different when it rains. It’s almost as if you can smell the life being washed back in to the gorge, brief as it was. It kind of reminded us of home! The smell of a saturated forest. Anyway, that’s been and gone now, back to 19° and 11hrs of sun a day. . ☀️ 🌴🌾🍊🧗‍♂️🇪🇸 . #chulilla #chulillaclimbing #rainbow #raining #rainforest #rainbow🌈 #nature #panorama #vanlife #outdoorshower #gorge #cliff #mountain #exploring #naturelovers #landscapelovers #calmafterthestorm #silverlining #potofgold #wheresthesun #sportclimbing #climbingholiday #ontheroad #rainbows #weather #clouds

When the river’s up, and we’ve had a ton of rain, it’s really good fun showing people what powerful water features feel like (on our canyoning trips). | Hydraulics, holes and stoppers are potentially dangerous white water hazards (they can be very serious). They are caused when water flows over an object and creates what is basically a vertical eddie; the water downstream is trying to replace some of the water slightly upstream. Coupled with the fact that the water is often further aerated from the obstacle means you don’t float so well, and it’s very easy to become trapped when the feature is powerful enough. | This feature is at the perfect level where you can experience the ‘catch’ of the hydraulic, the feeling of it sucking you in, without the danger of not being able to escape. You can see the sweet spot here, right in the middle, right up against the waterfall. Once you hit this, it drags you in and under... and then throws you out!! . #snowdonia #river #wildswimming #whitewater #waterfall #hydraulics #kayaking #stopper #northwales #waterfalls #waterslide #canyon #canyoning #adventuresinwales #blaenauffestiniog #porthmadog #beddgelert #northwalesactivities #igerscymru #discovercymru

Not a bad view to wake up to. The reservoir looking particularly crisp this morning, with a mirror reflection and the odd ripple on the water.

I’m not going to lie, even with 4 of us in the canoe, paddling wasn’t as easy as you might imagine. The crew could have done with more training, but it’s pretty evident we had a fun adventure! | I’m sure at one point Nieve (age 4) had a paddle, but I think we decided she was better as a lookout on the bow; spotting wildlife, crocodiles, land and other boats to board. | When the sun’s out and the tides high, kayaking and canoeing is a great trip for all ages. Never usually too strenuous or wild, we explore the tidal estuary, looking out for wildlife like the Buzzard, Osprey and Kingfisher. . #northwales #snowdonia #kayak #canoe #canoeing #kayaking #familyadventures #familyadventure #paddling #river #estuary #porthmadog #harlech #dwyrydestuary #mawddachestuary #glaslynestuary #harlech #discoverwales #adventuresinwales #pirates #igerscymru #northwalesactivities

North Wales is such a special place; the scenery we have here is really spectacular. When seen from above, the temperate rainforest that’s the location for our Canyoning adventure can truly be appreciated. | Ancient oak woodlands, surrounding a deep river gorge; the water twists, turns and cascades through this environment. We’re really lucky to have loads of amazing spots like this right on our doorstep; it’s nature’s playground, and there’s absolutely loads of it here in Snowdonia. North Wales is one big adventure park, built millions of years ago! Mountains, beaches, rivers, cliffs, forests. You need to see it to believe it, and it’s an experience you’ll remember for a long time.

Dropping in on Sunday morning! With smaller groups we abseil the side of the waterfall, ending with a free-fall jump (height depends on how brave you’re feeling). | If you’re committed, you can go pretty big! It’s a really nice spot down here in the pool by the waterfall; the canopy overhangs the river, there’s often wagtails and dippers flying around, and it’s really nice to swim over to waterfall and get underneath it! | If you think this looks like a good warmup but you want something more exciting, more adventurous, and guaranteed to get the adrenalin pumping, choose the Canyon Xtreme trip! . #snowdonia #visitwales #walesholiday #cymru #discovercymru #igerscymru #youonlyliveonce #northwalesactivities #abseil #waterfall #canyon #swallowfalls #abseiling #cliffjump #waterfalljump #canyoning #gorgescrambling #ghyllscrambling #adventure #snowdoniaadventureactivities

Rachel loves keeping it exciting. Here she is going for the solo descent of the waterfall zip-line. Normally you’d be clipped in with your harness, but Rachel wanted to test it out. | In all honesty I didn’t think she really stood much of a chance so I was pretty surprised and impressed to see her still hanging on when she got to the water. As it turns out, if you’ve got a bit of strength, it’s not that hard. Still, we’re going to keep using harnesses, don’t worry! | If you like the look of this awesome zip-line, it’s the final obstacle on our Canyon trip, and it’s only a small part of our Canyon our Xtreme adventure! To come and see what it’s all about, visit our website and book your adventure online.

The boys enjoying each other’s company in the natural jacuzzi on the canyon Xtreme trip. We organise a lot of stag and hen adventures, unfortunately there’s no champagne at this pit stop 🍾 🍻 I think max capacity is about 11 provided you’re all good friends... (this doesn’t leave much space for rachel though 🥳) | If you’re part of a group that’s visiting North Wales this year and you’re looking for things to do, the Canyon and Canyon Xtreme trips are unforgettable.

If you’re looking to push your limits, you’ve found the right place. Maximum adventure, your adrenalin will be pumping! This is the optional jumping area on the Canyon Xtreme trip. With jumps from 3m-12m, we build you up, giving you the ability and confidence to do some huge jumps in relative safety. If you don’t want to go higher, you don’t have to! | Even with no jumps this section is really cool; you can swim behind the waterfall, and when it’s high, it’s a real experience. You can feel the force of nature as hundreds of litres of water rushes past you, inches from your face! . #canyon #northwales #snowdonia #canyoning #waterfall #cliffjumping #sendit #dontlookdown #justgoforit #northwales #natureinwales #rainforest #snowdoniaadventureactivities #findyourepic #experienceadventure #adrenaline #coasteering #waterfalls #adventuretime #blaenauffestiniog #porthmadog #harlech #dolgellau #coedybrenin #gorgescrambling #northwalesactivities

Today’s objective, the huge classic trad route on the Ponoch; Via Valencianos. Climbed in around 14 pitches, mainly around 4+ but with a few 6a/e1 pitches. Being over 500m long it’s a pretty committing face, and it sounds like lots of people get lost on the way down trying to find the 3 abseils. We’ve got a dinner to get to for 7pm!Hopefully it goes alright today...

Semi rest day today. We climbed the classic mountain trad route Diedros Magicos (e1) on the Puig de Campaña. The plan was to do this then head down and do the other classic, El Diamente (e2) round the corner but we didn’t get up there until 11am, and although we were back at the bags just after 2pm, it wasn’t really in the spirit of a rest day to charge round and get stuck in to another massive trad route. Next time! | We climbed the line in 3 monster pitches, making the climbing long and a tad runout. The route follows a massive corner almost in its entirety, with the crux pitch at the top (although to me it felt sustained at solid e1). We just about made it down in 3 abseils (50/55/45m), and it was an easy descent taking about 20 mins total. A great climb, taking the line of the crag, in an impressive situation with great views. It was nice and warm too, I did the whole route in a t-shirt. . #vanlife #roadtrip #costablanca #climbcostablanca #puigdecampana #climb #climbing #rockclimbing #multipitchclimbing #multipitch #climbingtrip #climbingholiday #sella #finestrat #calpe #diedrosmagicos #perfectteam #funinthesun #tradclimbing #tradisrad #roadtrippin #exploring #mountains #spain #adventureholiday #restday #easyday #longday

We had a pretty good day today! Ticking an 8a would be good (it’ll take a bit of effort) but our real goal of the trip, the one thing we REALLY wanted to climb was the esoteric ‘The Magic Flute’, a top quality 7b up on the flanks of the Bernia Ridge. | It’s not always about the grade (although the climbing feels pretty close to our limit!); the challenge, the line (it’s immaculate), the history, the setting (1000m up on the side of a mountain), and the fact it’s slightly off the beaten track (you’ve got to drive 4km up a track to get there, and then it’s a bit of a jungle walk for 10 mins) all add to the experience. We’d had a go in 2017 and didn’t get very far; it was definitely going to be a battle this time! | I managed to flash it putting the draws in, and Rachel got it first redpoint after taking a good whipper half way up the tufa. I was also lucky enough to on-sight the equally magnificent ‘Tufa Groove’ 7b+ next to it. It was nice meeting a few friendly chaps from Pembroke, who’d also come to see what the hype was about. We rounded the evening off with a relaxing trip to a Spa! . #climb #climbing #magicflute #berniaridge #costablanca #costablancaclimbing #sportclimbing #sierradebernia #tufaclimbing #esoterica #vantrip #roadtrip #vanlife #climbingtrip #climbingholiday #benidorm #calpe #exploring #mountains #seaview #shecanclimb #climbergirl #climbergirls #girlswhoclimb #climbing_lovers #outdoorclimbing #climbit #ukclimbing #climbingtraining #costablancarock

Canyon Xtreme; in our opinion THE BEST adventure activity if you’re booking a weekend away with your friends / stag do / hen party / corporate team building day. | Here’s the team under the waterfall slide feature, in the ‘Xtreme’ section of the canyon adventure. The trip is best suited to groups up to approximately 18 people, so it’s a great trip if there’s a lot of you (big groups are more fun = plenty of banter!). | The obstacles are challenging and exciting, the big jumps are optional so you can push yourself as much (or little) as you like, it’s great to see your friends scared, and it makes for some unforgettable memories! . #snowdonia #stagdo #stagdoideas #henweekend #henideas #corporateteambuilding #corporateteam #teamcorporate #inittogether #conqueryourfears #canyon #canyoning #waterfall #wales #weekendaway #snowdon #betwsycoed #wildlifewalks #experienceadventure #findyourepic #coedybrenin #harlech #weekendinwales #walesholiday #holidayinwales #pushyourlimits

The big ‘Slide of No Return’ is really simple when the water levels are like this (high)! After a quick safety brief, you get sat on the edge, and when I think you’re ready, I let go! | It’s not called ‘The Slide of No Return’ for nothing. You head down it at full speed and drop straight off the edge, free-falling 15ft/6m in to the pool below. | This is the main area on the Canyon Xtreme trip, and a lot of people think the slide is the best feature on the trip. Lucky for some, you can’t really see the drop from up too, but your going off it! There’s no way of climbing back up for another go unfortunately! . #snowdonia #northwales #canyon #canyoning #waterslide #gorgescrambling #river #waterfall #adventureactivities #coasteering #familygoals #fullspeed #visitwales #adventurewales #snowdoniaadventureactivities #gorgewalking #nantcolwaterfalls #swallowfalls #findyourepic #experienceadventure #experiencedifferent
