What will students see and do?
Established in 2003, Boulder Adventures is based in Llanberis, at the foot of Snowdon, and operates both from the Bryn Du Mountain Centre and the nearby Padarn Watersports Centre in Padarn Country Park.
The independent outdoor adventure company offers a range of both land- and water-based activity courses, which can last from half a day to a week. Those on a residential trip will stay in a picturesque Victorian house situated 200m from Llanberis High Street, within beautiful oak woodland, and offers great views of the surrounding Snowdonia National Park.
Activities on offer include rock climbing and abseiling on rock faces in the Llanberis valley or in the Llanberis slate quarries, kayaking on Llyn Padarn, canoeing, coasteering on the Llyn Peninsula, gorge scrambling in the Conwy valley, mountain hiking, canyoning and raft building.
The duration of each session depends on the number of participants and conditions on the day. Boulder Adventures’ packages can also include additional activities such as night walks, problem-solving exercises, orienteering and wild swimming to ensure a varied and full programme.
