We generally meet for our activities at 9am for the morning session and 1230pm for the afternoon trip. During busy periods we sometimes run another trip at around 330pm. Each activity lasts approximately 3 hours. Our adventure activities are suitable for adults and children age 4+. No previous experience is required, all equipment is provided, all activities are guided and most activities require some level of basic fitness (you need to be able to cope with 2 hours of physical activity/light exercise).
We meet at specific locations for each activity; generally in the Barmouth to Blaenau Ffestiniog (coastal) area. You can book your adventure online up to 24hrs before the trip runs; we're almost always fully booked at weekends and holidays; booking in advance is advised. After booking, you're automatically sent all the information you need, including what time we meet, where exactly we meet and what you'll need to bring with you (all safety and specialist equipment is provided by us). If you'd like to know beforehand where an activity takes place, just drop us an e-mail.
We welcome adults, families, couples and organised corporate, hen and stag groups. If you're part of a group of 6/8 or more people then it's best to get in touch and book direct; our online booking system will only allow up to 6 people per booking (to avoid getting overbooked), but we can accommodate up to around 16 people per group for most of our activities. If your group is bigger than 16, we can norrmally still accomodate you (it will always be a private trip), get in touch! If you have any questions at all about whether or not our activities are suitable for you, we're happy to help. Specific information for each activity is detailed below:
The adventure activities industry in the UK is not regulated by law. This means that just because a company appears to be operating legitimately does not necessarily mean they have qualified and experienced guides, and, potentially worse, a valid insurance policy. Whoever you choose as a business/guide, it's up to you to make sure they're legit, they have an appropriate insurance policy, and their staff are experienced and hold the correct qualifications.
All participants are covered for public liability and negligence on the part of the company for up to £5'000'000. Should you wish to be covered for personal accident and injury (recommended), you must take out your own holiday insurance.
For more information on the qualifications we hold and our professional affiliations (including the BMC, BCA, AMI, BCU, BSA UKCC and British Cycling), please drop us and e-mail and we'll be happy to send details.
We do not allow unaccompanied children on any of our adventures. All under 18s must be accompanied by a paying and participating parent/ legal guardian (there's no max child:adult ratio). We are not ALLS registered and this is a legal requirement for anyone running these types of session.
