Ziplining, Skydiving, Treeclimbing… Wales has it all and more. What are you waiting for?

1. Go Below – Abseiling

Go Below – Abseiling in Wales

Are you looking to descend into the belly of a Welsh mountain, zip-line, crawl or climb your way through the treacherous terrain. You can boat your way across a lake, traverse an abyss or even scale a waterfall, your trip with Go Below is bound to be full of thrills, chills and adrenaline-pumping thrills. All whilst being led by some of the most fun, qualified and experienced instructors in the country.

2. Zipline – Zipworld

Zip-lining over Penrhyn Quarry

Are you ready to travel 1.5km over a disused quarry at over 100mph, in South Wales. With 4 individual zip-lines to use, you can enjoy this thrill of a lifetime with up to 3 other friends. The Zip-line has been there since 2013 and with no incidents you can zoom through the sky worry free.

With Chief Instructor Carl Williams who has performed 13,000 jumps over 30 years at your side, there is nothing to worry about. Your journey from 12,000 feet will be in 45 very short seconds.

However, this isn’t all that Margam has to offer, the country park where the site is located is also home to the largest deer herd in Wales with around 6,000 you will most likely see some whilst on your Treetop Adventure.
