Experience the thrill of gorge walking in Snowdonia with Afon Ddu Gorge Walk. Suitable for all ages and abilities, this popular activity is perfect for groups of any size. Explore the natural beauty of a U-shaped gorge as you paddle and move through the water, taking in spectacular waterfalls and swimming through natural pools.

Our experienced guides will lead you through this dynamic and dramatic environment, navigating obstacles and taking in the breathtaking scenery. With wetsuits provided, you can enjoy this adventure in any weather.

Gorge walking at Afon Ddu is a grade 2 scramble, with a 5a boulder traverse as the crux. Don't worry if you fall, you'll just get wet! This is a true "gorge" scramble, not a "ghyll" scramble, and deep pools will require swimming.

Located in the Conwy Valley, the Afon Ddu gorge walk is easily accessible from Dolgarrog. Park at the waterworks at Pont Dolgarrog and follow the path into the woods, turning left onto a small path that leads to the river bank.

As you scramble up the gorge, you'll encounter a steep step with a waterfall to the left and the 5a boulder traverse, which requires traversing the right wall of the gorge. Beyond this, the gorge steepens and you'll climb a waterfall before escaping onto drier rock.

Eventually, you'll reach a deep freshwater plunge pool and a path leaving on the right, marking the end of the gorge scramble. Take the path into the woods and follow the steep track back down to the car park.

Don't miss out on the opportunity to explore the beauty of Snowdonia and experience the adrenaline of gorge walking. Book your Afon Ddu gorge walk adventure today!
