This family holiday is the ultimate experience for adventure-seekers.
You won’t be afraid to make a splash as you make your way through a river gorge or discover the darkness deep down in a local mine. In between our adventurous activities we will be getting close with nature as we discover what wild creatures live in our grounds and cook an evening meal over an open fire after an afternoon of bushcraft.
One day will be spent with your adventure leader who will lead you up a local mountain in Snowdonia, sharing it’s hidden secrets along the way. Evenings will be a mix of led activities and own time for you to enjoy with your family. You will also have one day free so that you can go out and explore the local area. Ask your leader on the best places to visit in the area!
