While it may not be known as a premier canyoning destination, Wales abounds with some of the best spots for practicing the sport in the world.
The hilly and mountainous interior of the country means there are plenty of interesting and unique places to check out. While Brecon Beacons National Park may be the most popular, Snowdonia National Park near Llanbedr and Betws-y-Coed also offers many excellent canyoning options.
Farther to the east, Llangollen has plenty of gorge walking, climbing and canyoning options to explore too. To the south, Ross-on-Wye and Newport are also full of great opportunities and are pretty close to Cardiff as well.
Whether you are a beginner or expert, plenty of canyoning adventures await you in wonderful Wales.
Throughout the year, Wales is a wet and mild country. Average daily temperatures range from 6 °C in the winter to 20 °C in the summer, meaning canyoning can be done year-round. Rain is common throughout the year, but falls more often in the winter than in the summer.
Any trip to Wales will begin with a flight into Cardiff International Airport (CWL), which can be reached directly from most major European airports. From here, it is easiest to rent a car and drive up into the mountains as public transportation is limited.
