North Wales is renowned for outdoor activities and is a great escape to free the mind and relax, or to experience some exciting new challenges which can be enjoyed by everyone; no experience required.

White water rafting in North Wales is the best in the UK and you can combine this with a choice of other adventurous activities and a wide range of accommodation. Prices range from £135 to £205 per person and you can combine rafting with any of the following activities: Quad Biking; Canyoning; Zip Lining; Clay Pigeon Shooting; 4x4 Off Road Driving; Mountain Biking; Pony Trekking; Rock Climbing; and Bushcraft. 

Here are five of our favourite Adventure Breaks:


If fast and furious action is what you desire, then why not negotiate the mud-caked trails on an all terrain quad bike, challenging your skills as you negotiate gruelling slopes and evil descents. Either way, the hills are king.

Activity 2: Quad bikes Price: £172.00 pp (2-5 people)

Like white water rafting, clay pigeon shooting is an exhilarating experience, requiring lightning reactions and an ability to think calmly under pressure. There is no denying the rush of watching your clays shattering one after another as your aim improves under expert tuition.

The historic slate mine is the venue to enjoy the thrills as we take you on a ride of a lifetime on two ziplines, the first a meagre 800m of torpedo speed down the Little Zipper before taking the 20 minute guided tour up to the launch pad of the 1600m Big Zipper. the speed test was initially 80mph and now they say 100mph... Whatever speed you fly at, the acceletation at launch is incredible and at an altitude of 700ft over the lake, the most amazing view (if you have your eyes open!).
