May..... Spring is well and truely here

White Water.... With your feet in a Whoooshing Well

If you’ve ever been white water rafting then you’ll know the thrills and excitement involved. If you haven’t yet experienced it, then just imagine this – You and your group are all fitted out in smart wets suits, buoyancy aids and helmets, you’re each given an oar … you’re sitting aboard your brightly coloured craft with your professional helmsman taking you through your paces – the instruction is to paddle gently, the raft gathers momentum, the rivers gurgle turns to a gush, spray covers your face, lots of shrieks and laughter and very soon you’re riding the white water …WHOOSH !!

 What’s not to love? It really will give you something to talk about all week ! You’ve done it once, maybe twice ….? You love it but now you’re looking for something with a little more Whoosh…?? Try ORCA – You’ll paddle the same stretch of river at the Tryweryn White Water Centre with its grade 3-4 white water rapids. This time there’s only two of you and you have your own inflatable Orca – a kind of professional specialist Canoe, you’re in charge and you ride that white water like a pro! The thrills really are WHOOSH Super Sized! Again, you’ll be fully prepared with kit and instruction and the two and a half hours on the water will fly by. Adrenaline, fun and smiles guaranteed!

More on white water rafting & Orca... WHOOOSH HERE



Will your weekend give you something to talk about all week?




Q: What’s better than Two WHOOSHES …??

A: Four WHOOSHES of course


… and to grant you four WHOOSHES … those lovely people at VELOCITY have doubled the number of Zipwires to four at the legendary VELOCITY ZIPWIRES in Penrhyn Quarry in North Wales.


With speeds reaching an eye watering 125 mph, you’ll reach 60 mph in just ten seconds – WHOOSH. The new VELOCITY 2 offers a steeper decline, longer landing zone and state of the art patented braking system, now you can land up to 70% faster than before – Believe us … that’s some WHOOSH !!! This is a new benchmark in Zipwire experiences – you’ll be A-WHOOSHING and A-BUZZING for hours after you try this !!! GO TO WHOOOSH


Why not challenge three mates to fly alongside you, the four zips can be booked so that you start together – Four WHOOSHES, One challenge. Can your mates back up the chat?


If there was such a thing as an ADRENALINE’O’METER we’re pretty sure that this would score a perfect ten !

This adrenaline fuelled activity is proving popular with people from all over the UK and beyond so we suggest that you book as quickly as possible, and whilst you’re coming to North Wales or what we like to call the UK’s adventure playground, why not make the most of your trip and try some of the other fantastic activities that we at Adventure North Wales have to offer. We have over 30 exciting challenges for you to try from White Water Rafting to Quad biking, 4x4 driving and so much more – hey and we can even book your accommodation for you.


How’s that for a one stop shop? We will design your weekend to make the most of your time and give you something to talk about all week!






Hi Tracey,

Just a quick mail to say many thanks for organising our weekend, everybody who went thoroughly enjoyed themselves. I would like to give some feedback from the guys that went.

Friday - Into the Mountain - The 2 guides who took us were very professional and organised and we all felt very safe and able to enjoy the experience, it was a great day.

Saturday - Gorge Scrambling - The 2 guides who took us were fantastic they certainly made the day. They were totally focussed in ensuring everybody who went got the most out of it, it was that good nobody even mentioned not doing the other gorge that was closed. They certainly know what they are doing and how to tailor the event to those who are there. We would definately want to use them again next year.

Once again many thanks for putting this together and we will be speaking again to organise next year.

Kind regards





Hi Tracey

Just a quick note to say a huge thank you for helping organise a great weekend away!

Both activities were a first for all concerned and whilst I don't think anyone is going to take up canyoning as a full time hobby in Wales (my goodness its cold!) we certainly aren't going to forget it in a hurry

It all went like clockwork and everyone's now safely returned to their desks with tales of extreme bravery and high jinks - and some great material for my speech!

Many thanks again





Afternoon Tracey,

We have arrived back from our activity weekend. Everybody really enjoyed it and heard nothing but positive comments back. The "Ty sinamon" house is really nice and is well looked after, we couldn't believe how nice it was.

Thank you for all your help in sorting this out for us.





Hi Tracey,

I would just like to thank you so much for the amazing two days we had in Bala. The canyoning was out of this world, and the quads was a real boys toy day. The instructors on both activities were excellent and I would be very grateful if you could extend my thanks to them also. The group were taken back by the setting, the adrenalin rush and the overall organisation from the start to finish.

We will be coming back to attempt the rafting and a few more activities in sept time.

Again many thanks for all your time and effort, Dan
