Snowdon Adventure 2013

Spend the day adventure training, whilst taking in some extensive views of  Snowdonia.  Our weekend consists of canoeing, trekking, indoor climbing and raft building.

Your weekend starts on Friday 20th September 2013 meeting at Bryn Engan Cottage located in Snowdon National Park, Wales. For those who arrive early there is a nearby bar located across the river within the mountaineering centre Plas y Brenin.

On Saturday morning following a large breakfast and collection of packed lunches, we will then meet our instructors for the day and be kitted out with all our equipment for the days adventure.

We will spend the day around the centre taking in the stunning view of Mount Snowdon.  The centres lake will provide us with a ideal location to carry out the canoeing with the centres expert instructors.

Climbing which is a exhilarating activity and will leave us with a great sense of achievement.

The raft building will test your team work and abilities to tie basic knots. Once the raft is finished the team gets to test it out on a river crossing. This could be quite an interesting event.

Remember all activities are optional, so don’t feel any pressure you can watch and take pictures.

Following our adventure day, we will return back to our cottage before meeting up for our three course evening meal at the adventure centre. The bar will be open at 1845 for those who require it. There is a floodlit ski slope and a indoor climbing available nearby at additional cost for those interested if you have the energy. Also there will be a guest speaker offering a free leature in the centre if you just want to relax with a beer.
