Where can you do outdoor activities in Wales?

The National Outdoor Centre in Snowdonia is the perfect place for all things outdoors, beginner or expert.

Nestled in the lush greens of Snowdonia, Plas y Brenin is the one true place in Wales for all outdoor experiences. If you’re looking to pick up a new skill, develop new ones, or you’re just seeking a bit of an adrenaline rush then their expert team is there to help you. There’s a huge range of courses, one-day activities or holidays to choose from – hop on your bike for a ride around the hills of Snowdon or take a 5-day summer camp in mountain biking; stronger on the water? Then take a guided sea kayak around North Wales; if you don’t fancy getting wet then take a 2-day rock climbing course. These activities are arranged by only the highest standard of instruction and the best equipment and facilities.
