What is Canyoning?
The best way of describing our canyoning activity is white water rafting but without the raft. With our guides, you descend a stunning steep sided gorge by various ways and means. This can involve sliding down rapids, swimming down rapids, floating down fast flowing chutes and waves, walking behind some breathtaking waterfalls and of course jumping off those jaw dropping waterfalls.
“I would like to thank you for a fantastic weekend we all had with Adventure Britain. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed all the activities and everything ran like clockwork. Canyoning was amazing.” Dave Nicholson

Who can go canyoning?
Canyoning in Wales does require a degree of physical fitness. It can be demanding as it involves a lot of adrenaline, swimming and walking. However it is suitable even if you can’t swim as we provide you with buoyancy aids. For younger less physically able customers we offer alternative combined rock and water activities such as gorge walking.
Where can I go canyoning?
Adventure Britain sessions are based in the Brecon Beacons, Wales, UK. We use the rivers on the southern edge of the Park which provides us with a wonderful adventure playground. You can’t do canyoning to this sort of level and in such stunning surroundings in many other parts of the UK. It should definitely be on the list of things to do before you pass your sell by date.

“ Canyoning was by far the best activity we have done on any of our weekends away (which last count was 6). The staff and the way the activity was run were second to none, all the boys loved it and there is already talk of coming back.” Richard Gunner
What will I have to wear for my canyoning session?
For your session we will provide you with a full kit list upon booking. For guidance, we will provide you with a wet suit, buoyancy aid and helmet.
Good combinations of activities
Only suitable for combination with other activities for weekends or longer duration visits. It can be combined with any of the range of activities available whether it be caving, climbing, quads, paintball and clay pigeon shooting.
Can I use a camera?
Yes you can but we would only recommend bringing a waterproof disposal camera if it is your intention to take it into the gorge. With any other camera we cannot guarantee it will make it out in one piece.
Take away a video or photos
We can arrange for a professional photographer to follow you down the gorge.
In certain circumstances we can arrange for your group to filmed as they descend the gorge but this is only by prior arrangement.
