Calling all adrenaline junkies

If you’re seeking your next thrill fix, here’s a rundown of my top 5 high adrenaline activities in North Wales.

1. Climbing in Snowdonia

We don’t just sell holidays for a living, we also endure some gruelling adrenaline activities in the name of research! Last winter we went out with two of the fantastic folks over at Gaia Adventures¬†and had an absolute blast. We got soaking wet whilst hiking to and climbing a rock face which we subsequently abseiled down. There were bruised knees and sore muscles all around the next day, but it was well worth it! You’ll get an incredible buzz once you’ve climbed that rock and you’re soaking up the amazing views from a new vantage point.

2. Zip World Fforest, Betws-y-Coed

If you have ever wished you could be Tarzan, then this is the place for you! Perfect for all the family, this award-winning adventure park nestled in the trees is not for the faint-hearted. Swing through the woodland on their high ropes course, plummet through a trapdoor from 100ft or fly through the sky on Skyride, which features in our ‘Can You Handle It?’ video. Trust us, it’s a¬†lot of fun!

Go Ape

3. Go Below, Conwy Falls/Tanygrisiau

If you’re scared of heights, skip to number 4! However, if you like to challenge yourself, our next one is definitely for you. Test your nerve by journeying through a mountain via a series of exciting adventurous challenges on one of Go Below’s three epic underground adventures. If you’re looking for an even cooler adventure, you can opt to spend a night underground with their Deep Sleep experience.

4. GYG Karting, Cerrigydrudion

GYG Karting is ideal for those thrill seekers looking to put their driving skills to the test. Being North Wales biggest and most thrilling outdoor race circuit and voted as Red Bull’s number 1 go karting track in the UK, there’s nowhere better to take your friends for a competitive day of racing. Will you come out on top?

5. Bounce Below, Blaenau Ffestiniog

What’s not to love about a trampoline…underground? You can bounce the time away whilst enjoying a light show deep within a slate quarry. It’s child friendly too, so perfect for younger thrill-seekers looking for adrenaline activities in North Wales. Utter genius!

After all that climbing, bouncing and zipping it’s time to find somewhere to eat, drink and sleep! Here are some holiday cottages near some of the most popular adrenaline activities in Llanberis, the Conwy Valley and Maentwrog (for activities in Blaenau Ffestiniog).
