Zipwires, coastlines & wild camping
Make sure you’re well rested, the next 36 hours is going to be big. You’ll be picked up at around 8am, and with no time to hang about, it’s straight off to ZipWorld, the home of Velocity2.
This is the definition of jumping in at the deep end, as you’ll be briefed, strapped in, and shot through the pure mountain air at over 100mph, over the sheer cliffs of an old slate quarry, the dramatic mountains of Snowdonia rising dramatically either side of you.
The fastest zipline in the world, and the longest in Europe at roughly one mile long, is a true once-in-a-lifetime experience, as you fly freely amongst the incredible scenery.
Once your feet are firmly back on the ground, we’re off to Holyhead on the island of Anglesey, the birthplace of coasteering. There’s time for a quick lunch stop, then it’s time to leap, quite literally, back into the action.
There’s no better way to truly experience and feel in touch with this wild, rugged coastline than by scrambling along narrow ridges and cliffs, taking leaps of faith into the fresh Irish Sea below for a big hit of adrenaline.
Explore the dramatic scenery and spot the local wildlife: sea birds, the odd seal, and fascinating macro life in the many rock pools.
After this, shower off the salty seawater and grab your overnight kit, as we’re off back to the mainland and the wilds of Snowdonia. Enjoy the secluded trails and setting sun on an evening hike, then camp in complete solitude on a wild camp under the stars.
Wherever we set up camp, we’ll enjoy some simple, hearty meals, and with luck, relax beneath a dark canvas scattered with clouds of stars. Snowdonia is a designated International Dark Sky Reserve, so there’s no better place to lie back and simply stare at the wonders above you.
