If you're looking for the most exciting, adrenalin packed adventure activity then the Canyon Xtreme trip is for you. This is one of out most popular adventurous, and it's one of the best activities in Snowdonia. We swim, slide, jump and scramble down the cascading mountain river. It's great fun, packed full of adventure, and you can push yourself to the limit.
We do all the best bits of the normal canyon trip (the top gorge, the big slides, the waterfall abseil/zip-line) and then carry on down the river to the 'Xtreme' section. This includes a mandatory slide off a 15ft waterfall, optional jumps from 15-40ft, some more slides and pools, and finally a big long climb out up a waterfall stream.
Adventure Rating: 5/5
Location: Blaenau Ffestiniog Area
You Need: Trainers | Swimwear | Towel
Under normal conditions, good swimming ability isn't necessary (you're wearing a BA so you float!) but a fear of water isn't helpful. If the river's high, then you need to be able to swim.
