Whatever your ability, novice or expert, Snowdonia will have a mountaineering course or activity to suit you.

Keen to get started?  For some awesome indoor climbing, get over to Beacon Climbing Centre, Cibyn Estate, Caernarfon, where you’ll find hundreds of different colour coded climbs, from relatively easy challenges for those new to the sport, to professional level climbs designed to inspire and challenge future champions. Open 7 days a week all year round (except Christmas Day & Boxing Day)

Roped climbing walls up to 17m high, multiple low level bouldering areas including a 12m routing roof, a dedicated kids’ climbing area and something that’s entirely off-the-wall – CrazyClimb featuring a series of wacky climbing challenges.

Suitable for all ages from 5+, no previous climbing experience is required. You just need to book a Taster Session or Intro Course, using the simple online booking system to choose a date and time that suits you. All sessions are fully supervised by qualified instructors.

Great fun for the family

Crazy Climb is a lot of fun. It has lots of different climbs available. The staff are kind and encouraging I would recommend it for families.

Ready to take the next step…….

Outdoors can be a much more challenging environment than the climbing wall which can make it seem quite daunting to someone who has not done it before. North Wales mountains, crags and sea cliffs offer some world-class venues for rock climbing, scrambling and mountaineering.

Want to learn how to climb but not sure where to start?  Need essential advice on how to improve your climbing skills? Deep in the mountains of North Wales, Plas y Brenin is a unique place, run by outdoor enthusiasts for outdoor enthusiasts. Based in the heart of North Wales’ Snowdonia, Pals Y Brenin is surrounded by some of the finest rock climbing routes in Britain, from the towering sea cliffs of Gogarth and exposed mountain crags of Cwm Silyn to the inviting slabs of Cwm Idwal and Tremadog.

There’s even a choice of rock-to-rock climb on too with limestone, rhyolite, quartzite, dolerite and slate all within easy reach.

This unique position in North Wales and the Snowdonia national park not only provides great variety and flexibility allowing adaptability with course location and content to suit both the weather pattern and your ability.

Re-charge your batteries at the coast, or enjoy some vigorous exercise in the mountains. Just two of the many reasons to book a holiday cottage with Coastal Holidays.

The Snowdonia National Park covers most of the region and is an absolute feast for the eyes – a dazzling showcase of rugged mountains, magnificent estuaries and breath-taking coastline. Against this backdrop of outstanding natural beauty, you’ll discover charming towns and sleepy villages; imposing, historic castles (most notably, Harlech, Conwy and Caernarfon); plus a wealth of attractions for every age and taste.

Enjoy the ‘great outdoors’, with a huge range of adventure sports from scaling Mount Snowdon and daredevil mountain bike trails in Coed Y Brenin, to riding the rapids at the National Whitewater Centre. Or chug along by steam aboard one of Snowdonia’s mountain railways.

Other places to visit include the Roman Museum of Segontium, Swallow Falls, the National Slate Museum, Electric Mountain, Llandudno Ski & Snowboard Centre, Bodnant Gardens; as well as a number of RSPB nature reserves and all kinds of family attractions.

Ysgubor (sleeps 4), a well-presented barn conversion on the edge of the Snowdonia national park is an ideal base for exploring the delights of Snowdonia, perfect for hill walking, mountaineering and sea based pursuits with fabulous beaches nearby.
