Experience Itinerary

Arrival

Arrive in Bala ready to check in to your hotel from 14:00.

Take the afternoon to relax ahead of your family adventure holiday, perhaps a walk around Bala’s pretty high street. 

Your welcome meeting will take place at 18:00 followed by dinner for you and your family at the hotel. Get to know the rest of your group while enjoying locally produced food as you look forward to sharing experiences with other like-minded travellers and watch your family connect with new friends.

Canyoning

Get ready, you’re going canyoning! Climb, scramble, jump and splash your way through the challenging terrain of a hidden river gorge for a truly fun but physically demanding experience. It’s a full day out in a stunning part of North Wales – enjoy the views as together you abseil down waterfalls and leap from rocks into the river below!

Enjoy a free evening with your family in Bala, winding down after the physical activity of canyoning.

Whitewater Rafting

Put on your wetsuits, jump on your raft and head off for a morning of whitewater rafting. The Tryweryn river is a famous dam release rafting location in Wales. Ride upper Tryweryn’s natural, Welsh mountain whitewater rapids in an adrenalin fuelled morning. Create lasting memories for both yourself and your family as we ensure everyone gets the most out of their adventure holiday.

Enjoy your free afternoon to explore more of Bala and the surrounding area. Why not take a walk along Bala lake, watch the wildlife or check out the lake railway.

Hiking and Stay in Bunkhouse

Pack your bags, you’re going hiking! Your family adventure holiday continues in beautiful Snowdonia national park, hiking and paddling while you take in the incredible landscape.

Your guide will take you along the less trodden paths to the famous Snowdon summit. Take in the epic views of this famous national park with its iconic peaks and stunning lakes.

This evening you’ll relax in a remote off-grid bunkhouse, tucked away at the foot of Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales and England. It’s an incredible setting for a family adventure holiday and the perfect place to kick back and gaze up at the dark starry night sky in this International Dark Sky Reserve.

Hiking and Kayaking

 After you’ve enjoyed breakfast, hike to the shores of Llyn Padarn, one of the most famous lakes in Snowdonia. Here you’ll swap your hiking boots for a kayak and set off to paddle this stunning lake. Enjoy a totally different perspective of the mountains as you glide across the water.

This afternoon you’ll be hiking back from Llyn Padarn back to the bunkhouse to enjoy another starry night in the foothills of Snowdon around the campfire.

RIB trip

After breakfast you’ll be hiking out from your remote bunkhouse to be collected and taken to Menai Bridge.

Hold on tight, your family adventure holiday continues with an action packed RIB trip along the Menai Strait. Along the way you will get the chance to see Garth Pier, the second longest in Wales. After feeling the wind in your hair and taking in the views, the RIB will make its way back in a fast, fun and exhilarating blast back to base, with bumps and turns along the way.

Once you’re back on dry land, you’ll be collected for the short drive to Beaumaris, ready to check in to the hotel that will be your base for the next few nights.

At one time Wales had over 600 castles and today 100 of those still stand, either in ruins or restored. One of the most impressive is Beaumaris Castle with its ‘walls within walls’ design. If you have some energy left, take a short walk with your family to explore this fascinating historic town and its magnificent castle at your own pace (or more likely, have a hot shower and crash out in a comfy bed!).

Coasteering

Enjoy a free morning to relax and explore the many boutique shops and cafes of Beaumaris.

This afternoon get ready to jump, climb, scramble and swim your way along the coastline of Anglesey! Coasteering combines the best of rock and water-based activities, and North Wales offers one of the best coasteering experiences you can find. Get some intrafamily competition going as you scramble across rocks, get swirled around in the water and climb tough walls as far as you can before crashing back into the waves.

It’s a truly exhilarating experience and a fantastic way for you to get up close and personal with the rocky Welsh coast for your final day of your family adventure holiday.

Departure

It’s the last morning of your family adventure holiday, so it’s time to pack your case and look back on the great week of new adventures and memories you’ll have to take home with your family.

Our minibus will take you back to the tour starting location in Bala so you can make your way back home. Expect to leave the hotel at 10:00.
