What you'll get up to

Canyoning is Gorge walking on steroids. This isn’t for the faint of heart and it is an intense, heart-beating activity that you will never forget. It involves jumps, drops and leaps of fate that will test your nerve and leave you feeling you can take on anything !!!

Our experienced staff will guide you through the gorge, while keeping you safe we will encourage you to experience some adrenaline filled fun.

Abseil down a flowing waterfall to drop into the giant pool below, slide off a natural rock formation into the famous cauldron pool and beat the canyon challenges, all in the backdrop of the stunning Snowdonia National Park.

The natural beauty of this location is jaw-dropping to say the least. Kitted out in your wetsuit, harness, helmet and Buoyancy aid we take you through this wilderness and on what can only be described as a true adventure. Walking through an SSSI site and protected UK rainforest the BMA staff’s local knowledge will educate you on the present environment and hopefully show how important these locations are.

The Bearded Men's top tip

We recommend you come with a good fitness level and a desire to push yourself further than you have before and we’re sure you’ll surprise yourself.

The day out of a lifetime

Rich J

Amazing experience. Jason and team were brilliant, making sure everyone was safe and comfortable with what we were doing.

Can 100% guarantee that being pushed backwards into a pool of mountain water in late September clears your head of even the worst hangover!
