Gorge Scrambling

Gorge scrambling is canyoning's little brother! It's a great activity for families with smaller children. It's easier and more relaxing than canyoning and the gorge we use is truly spectaular; you'll think you're in Jurassic Park not North Wales! The gorge is suitable for 4 - 10 years olds.


After getting kitted out with wetsuits, bouyancy aids and helmets there's a short walk through ancient oak woodland down into the deep river valley. This valley is incredibly beautiful and it's a protected nature reserve. We arrive at an ancient broken stone bridge that once spanned the gorge and we get in to the pool for a play around before we start scrambling up the river bed, working our way up the gorge. During the trip we swim through lovely rock pools, slide down natural water slides, climb through waterfalls and jump in off the rocks.
