North Wales

Short on time but big on adventure? This is the ultimate non-stop adrenaline experience

With so much to do in North Wales, we didn’t think cramming it into just 36 hours was possible. But when  challenged to create the ultimate experience for You Tube and Instagram star JJ Yosh, we found a way to do it! And now you can live it too. If you think you can handle it?

Perfect for couples and friends.

Hours 1 to 20


Make sure you’ve had a good night’s sleep, the next 36 hours will be non-stop adventure! Kicking off at 8am, your personal guide will collect you from your base in Manchester, Liverpool or Chester (please contact us to discuss other collection locations).

Your stay with us is only brief, so lets get it off to a flying start! We’ll head straight to ZipWorld, the home of Velocity2. Here we’ll get you checked in and kitted up, ready for your safety briefing. And then you’re off for the experience of a lifetime, soaring through the air above an old Welsh slate quarry at speeds of around 100mph! Covering a distance of roughly 1 mile, this is the longest zipline in Europe and the fastest in the world. It’s like nothing you’ve ever experienced.


Once your feet are firmly back on the ground, there’s time for a quick lunch stop to fuel up for your next adrenaline hit. Your guide will then take you to your next adventure location, Holyhead on the island of Anglesey.

Did you know coasteering was born in Wales? So where better to experience it than here!

Once kitted up and briefed by our coasteering instructor, you and your friends will set off to scramble, splash, leap and climb your way around the rocky North Wales coastline. Get ready for a physical afternoon and make sure you’re ready to take a leap of faith… well, several leaps actually! You’ll be rewarded with a unique perspective of this beautiful and naturally wild area. There’s plenty of sea birds to look out for and maybe even the odd seal or two, as well as intriguing macro life amongst the rock pools too.

Once you’re back on dry land, grab a quick shower to wash away the salty seawater and get ready for your next adventure.


It’s time to grab your overnight kit. We’ll head back to the mainland for our starting point in Snowdonia, then we’re off for an evening hike and a night of wild camping under the starry skies.

Our wild camp location will depend on what time of year you choose for your 36 Hour Adventure experience. This allows us to factor in weather conditions and choose the place we feel will be the best experience for you. Options include staying in a traditional Welsh mountain bothy or tents.

Wherever we stay, we’ll enjoy simple hearty food and, weather permitting, a glorious dark sky full of stars. Snowdonia National Park is a designated International Dark Sky Reserve, making it an incredible place to lay back and look up at the spectacular night sky above.

Hours 20 to 36


We’ll be up early to catch sunrise in the mountains, the most magical way to start your day. After a quick brew and traditional Welsh cakes whilst we pack up camp, we’ll set off on our dawn hike. The sun will still be climbing into the sky so you’ll want your camera ready to capture the stunning light.

Once back at our vehicle, we should* have time for another light breakfast bite to make sure you’re fully fuelled up (*depends how many photo stops you make!). And then we’re off to your first adrenaline adventure of the day.

We’ll be taking you to the pretty riverside town of Llangollen, where your first experience will be Extreme Riverbugging. If you’ve never seen riverbugging before, you’re going to love it! Your bug is a small individual raft. Lay down face first and use your hands as paddles to head down the river, navigating a series of rapids along the way. When your face is just inches from the water, even the small rapids will set your heart racing! Swerve rocks, plunge through narrow rapids and even have a go at surfing. You’ll be grinning all the way down river until we reach the town centre exit point.


By now you’ll have worked up a big appetite, so grab a hot shower and enjoy some tasty food at the watersports centre cafe.

It’s only 1pm and already you’ve camped, hiked and riverbugged today. Now it’s time for your next and final activity in North Wales. You’ll have been dunked enough this morning so we’ll keep it dry. You won’t be keeping your feet on the floor though…

By now you’ll have seen the towering cliffs of limestone that dominate views from the town. Under the guidance of a qualified instructor, your final experience is to climb and abseil these imposing crags. Whether you’re a first timer or an experienced climber, stepping backwards from the clifftop is a fitting way to bring your epic micro adventure in North Wales to a close.

It’s time to say goodbye to Wales. And finally you can take a rest as we drive you back to your Manchester, Liverpool or Chester city centre base.

With so much to discover here it’s impossible to pack everything into just 36 hours. But together with your partner or closest friends, you’ll have experienced an epic personal adventure, with awesome stories to share of your time here in North Wales.

Do you reckon you can handle it?
