We deliver Mountain walking and rock climbing, coasteering, canyoning and gorge walking in the beautiful Snowdonia national park North Wales.

Active Cymru have delivered back to back adventure from the more extreme group sports to individuals experiencing the outdoors for the first time. We understand that each group has different strengths and weakness and take pride by developing and building on the individuals outdoor skill.

 

We love heading out in all weather conditions on land and in the water. In the UK we have a maritime climate making the seasons more interesting in the outdoors.

After completing training by a group of the most accomplished climbing and mountaineers at the National Mountain Center we started leading groups in the outdoors. We take pride in our work and go when the conditions are tough, its demanding and requires a little more preparation. We set ourselves apart for this reason and look forward to meeting you.

 

We pride ourselves on safety management, with a 100% safety track record.

 

As a professional coach trained in security on steep ground, rope work and rigging work as cliff-top safety management for film and television, have a look.


At Active Cymru we’re passionate about making adventures in the outdoors that allow you to explore the fabulous natural environments of the Snowdonia National park North Wales, and it’s all thanks to the adventurers and explorers from individuals like you!
