Snowdonia in North Wales, is one of the UK’s most popular destinations for hiking and outdoor holidays. But there’s more to this region than craters and crags. It’s blessed with some of the most beautiful coastal scenery in Wales, on the Llŷn Peninsula and Cambrian Coastline. And its reputation for fine dining using Welsh meat, fish and cheese is growing all the time.
Here you can explore above and below ground with this unique adrenalin-fuelled break in Snowdonia National Park in Wales including 3 nights’ luxury accommodation with Snowdonia Shepherds’ Huts, as well as a Tree Top Adventure one day and underground exploration the next. Go back to the warmth and comfort of your shepherds’ huts after a thrilling day and soothe your body and your nerves in their wood-burning sauna, ready for more adventure the next day.
If planning a trip there, on your first day you’ll take an underground journey through the mountain with an experienced guide from Go Below Underground Adventures. As you explore the awe inspiring environment of an abandoned mine you’ll encounter forgotten deep blue lakes, lofty caverns and ancient mining machinery lying abandoned in the darkness. You’ll cross zip lines and traverses, climb rock faces and waterfalls, boat across water and abseil off ledges for that thrilling adrenalin rush that’ll leave you feeling totally exhilarated!
After spending the evening with your feet up by the fire, reliving the best bits of your day, you’ll get a good night’s sleep ready for the next day of adrenalin fuelled adventure – this time high above ground with Tree Top Adventures!
Firstly try out the Adventurers’ Course, a 90 minute tree top obstacle course, where you will swing, step, balance and fly around various obstacles in the heights of the woodlands. You finish the course with a small (48ft) PowerFan parachute simulator jump.
All this before facing two extreme challenges – the Sky Ride & the Powerfan Plummet – the worlds’ highest PowerFan parachute simulator! SO if your nerves are still intact, it’s time to scale Tree Top Tower to a knee quaking 100 feet to reach the PowerFan’s jump platform. Standing with heart pounding and knees quaking our fully qualified instructors do the final checks before your spectacular descent on the jaw dropping PowerFan Plummet. The revolutionary new technology ensures a featherlight landing!
Then it’s onto the Sky Ride, Europe’s highest and first 5 seater Giant Swing will leave you truly breathless as you are hoisted over 80 feet high into the air then released to swing out over the magnificent Conwy Valley.
This unique break is available throughout November and December (until 20th December) at a special price of just £189 per person, for 3 nights’ accommodation including activities, based on two people sharing.
Designed and built by owners Richard and Hazel Barclay, Snowdonia Shepherds’ Huts were set up in 2012.. The huts have been lovingly crafted and beautifully cared for and are full of charm. The two huts are exclusively yours for your holiday and include a comfortable sofa that pulls down at night to make a double bed with a lambs’ wool mattress, luxurious feather duvet and pillows, and a traditional Welsh blanket in one hut with a luxurious Welsh Mountain sheepskin rug on the floor, a wood burning stove for chillier nights, a dresser and a small table and chairs. In the other hut you’ll find a toilet, shower and wash basin.
