Hot Air Balloon Ride

Not only will you be able to share this experience with your partner, family or friends to create a memory that you will each treasure for years to come, but a hot air balloon ride will also provide you with a unique view of this stunning country that you would have never seen before!
If you’re a keen adventurer and want to test your endurance levels to the max while glamping in Wales, mountain climbing is a fantastic experience that will push you to your limits. While there are many trails and routes you can take alone or with other members of your party, if you’re looking to tackle Snowdon – the biggest of them all – a guided hike is the best and safest way to do so and will enable you to get the full experience with the help of a professional. There are several adventure companies based in the Snowdonia National Park, so you’ll never be short for choice. However, we do recommend booking beforehand to ensure you are not disappointed on the day of your climb!
For those holidaying near Cardiff with a love of good grub, a Welsh food safari is sure to be a hit. Known for its vibrant freshness and hearty flavours, the Welsh cuisine is something you must try while holidaying here and this unique safari will allow to explore the capital city while sampling some of its finest culinary delights too! Other Cardiff food tours also include a shorter tasting tour and a lunch and landmarks tour.
While South Wales has some of the best places for wild swimming, North Wales also lends itself to several wet and wild outdoor activities such as coasteering, a thrilling activity that involves exploring the region’s beautiful coastline in the most exciting way possible. Edge along rock ledges, clamber across cliff faces and lurch from one crevice to the next before hurtling yourself into waves below! Not for the faint-hearted, this is the perfect experience for adrenaline junkies who love to live, quite literally, on the edge!
Another unforgettable experience that will help you to see North Wales in a whole new way, zip-lining is a fun and unique experience that the entire family will love. Head to Zip World in Penrhyn Slate Quarry to ride the world’s fastest and Europe’s longest zip line, Zip World Velocity 2! Feel the breeze ruffle your hair as you zoom through the air, taking the stunning panoramic views and feeling an adrenaline rush like never before as you fly!
