Canyoning Half Day Afon Prysor Maentwrog Nr Porthmadog North Wales

Canyoning Expedition Full Day Nr Betws-y-Coed North Wales

Canyoning or canyoneering is to travel a canyon or gorge by combining hiking, climbing, swimming, and abseiling. We explore the hard-to-reach areas of a natural landscape here in North Wales by following a water route carved through rock formations.

In navigating paths along streams, pools, and waterfalls, a canyoneer will slide, jump, and descend down through the gorge, we use technical equipment for safety. It can be done primarily for fun and to gain experience, but also for the difficulty of the course and challenges of the terrain.


Canyoning above the water
There are many levels to canyoning, and it can be enjoyed by all ages. The amount of water and the number of vertical obstacles are factors in determining a canyon´s difficulty. Some of the harder and more technical stages of a canyon, like rappels and jumps, can be modified or avoided altogether to make a specific route more accommodating.

The rush of jumping and diving into beautiful pools of water is incredible, and it doesn’t require a lot of advanced skills. Abseiling, or rappelling involves descending into more challenging areas with the significant use of technical equipment and is considered advanced canyoning with all training provided on the day here in Snowdonia.
