North Wales Active - Gorge Walking Information


In North Wales We have 2 main gorges that we use and both have different elements and challenges. All challenges are fun & range in difficulty but not essential to complete the gorge. Jumps range from 2ft-30ft (depending on the gorge) so start low and build upto a level that suits you.

Age range is 10 years + for Gorge 1 & 12 years + for Gorge 2.


North Wales Gorge Walking has become hugely popular over the last few years due to the accessibility of the gorges and the fact that it's an all weather and all year round activity. 

North Wales Active only use experienced & qualified instructors who know and work in these Gorges all year round.


Gorge Walking Start times


We reccommend starting about 10.00am or 13.00 but can arrange a time to suit you. The whole experience lasts 2 - 5 hours depending on Gorge and group size and ability.


Gorge Walking Fitness


You dont have to be super fit but a small amount of fitness is needed to complete each gorge. Swimming is at a minimum in Gorge 1, Gorge 2 has a bit more swimming and a few abseils in it.

See Gorge Walking descriptions above.
