Canyoning Wales Description

Canyoning Wales

Canyoning (aka Gorge Walking / Gorge Scrambling) takes place in the Brecon Beacons National Park South Wales, the best known location for this activity in the UK! Follow the rivers in Wales and magnificent gorges located in this famous waterfall landscape, accompanied by our qualified and experienced instructors.

Canyoning  (also referred as canyoneering in America) typically involves  walking, climbing, jumping, abseiling and swimming to navigate your way through rivers, gorges and waterfalls in remote and rugged locations. Our Canyoning experience takes place in the waterfall country of the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park, also used as a training ground for the SAS and SBS.

Suitably kitted out in a wet suit, buoyancy aid and helmet, your group will take the most exciting route to include tobogganing down rapids, traversing rock walls, jumping across boulders, scrambling up rock faces, crawling behind and jumping off waterfalls and exploring hidden caves. The day would not be complete without taking the plunge at Loonies Leap! There is no better place to do Canyoning in Wales.

We have been running Canyoning in Wales for many years and have discovered the most challenging, exciting, fast paced and adventurous experience possible. Our default Canyoning route lasts approximately 3hrs there is also an option for an extended route for more detailed information on the routes we use please click this link.

To arrange a booking we require a minimum group size of four, if you do not have a minimum group size you are welcome to join one of our open events.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will Canyoning in Wales be too difficult? Is there a recommendation on fitness and age?
Our instructors will assess the overall ability of your group, along with the weather and river conditions. Judging the weather conditions may lead to an alternative route being chosen. At the end of the day we want to ensure your safety and enjoyment.

What happens if a member of the group decides they want to stop half way through?
All (except one) of the elements of the route are optional, no one taking part in canyoning will be forced to do anything that they are not happy with. You can simply opt out of challenges and there is always an escape route. The exception is a waterfall scramble that everybody has to get through in order to progress to the next part of the gorge...nobody has failed so far!
