Who doesn’t love an adventure?
Snowdonia has recently been dubbed the adrenaline capital of the UK, with activity parks such as Surf Snowdonia, Bounce Below and Zip World to name just a few. There’s something for everyone – and by staying in a hotel in Snowdonia, it means you will be given the chance to explore more freely, as all the necessities will be a mere arm’s reach away!
If adrenaline and adventure is what you seek look no further than North Wales. Here are just a few adrenaline filled activities for you and your rented campervan to explore.
Surf Snowdonia, Dolgarrog, LL32 8QE
Nestled into the valley is the World’s first inland-built surf lagoon. Magnificent man-made waves that reach head height are attracting people from every corner of the globe, and it’s easy to see why. Pull up in your campervan and get your wetsuits on. Why not try out a surfing lesson? Also on offer is an exciting Crash and Splash Lagoon assault course as well as paddle boarding, gorge walking, kayaking and canoeing – what more could you want!
Zip World Fforest, Betws-y-Coed, LL24 0HA
Not far from Surf Snowdonia is this tree-top rope course, set with incredible views of the surrounding valley. With three separate courses to tackle, you won’t leave bored. Try Plummet; the World’s highest powerfan tree parachute simulator, Skyride; Europe’s first 5-seater rope swing, or the Zip Safari; an exhilarating rope course suspending you mid-air in a canopy of trees. The excitement is endless – but comfort can be found in a hot drink made in the warmth of your hired VW van, before setting off in search of a new adventure. Perfect!
Zip World Bounce Below, Blaenau Ffestiniog, LL41 3NB
In your campervan, travel down the A470 towards the slate quarry town of Blaenau Ffestiniog for another major adrenaline attraction. Here homes more of the Zip World franchise; Bounce Below and Zip World Titan. Bounce Below is a series of indoor trampoline-like nets that suspend the jumper over the deep Ffestiniog caverns. Hours of adrenaline-fuelled fun for all the family!
Zip World Titan, Blaenau Ffestiniog, LL41 3NB
Right next door is where the real adrenaline begins. Titan is one of two major Zip Line attractions in North Wales. Get your flying gear on! Titan, the first four person zip line to exist in Europe offers breathtaking views across the surrounding area as you fly mid-air – a real rush for even the biggest of adrenaline junkies. Some, however, view Titan as just a warm up to its somewhat more extreme sibling; Zip World Velocity; a 5 minute drive from Blaenau Ffestiniog.
Zip World Velocity, Bethesda, LL57 4YG
Behind the wheel of your VW, take a 5 minute drive further down the A470 to Bethesda: home of Zip World Velocity. This exciting attraction is the fastest zip line in the world and the longest in Europe. This is a highly recommended challenge for any lover of adrenaline! Warm up first on the Little Zipper before taking the exciting plunge, right from the peak of Penrhyn Quarry. It’s easy to see why Snowdonia is renowned for its adrenaline sports when Zip World alone has so much to offer. Meanwhile your trusty Conwy VW Campervan will be on stand-by as you fly through the stunning backdrop of North Wales – food, drink and comfort at the ready!
All this and much more is readily available round North Wales. With our luxury campervans anyone can explore the area with great ease, and make use of the adrenaline filled activities just waiting to be experienced. So, what are you waiting for?
