Gorge Walking

A group Gorge Walking

Gorge Walking combines our experience of rivers and rock to provide an exhilarating day scrambling through the gorges of Wales. You'll be submitting yourself to the challenges that the natural gorge throws at you.

What is it?

If you are after a wet and wild day out then this is for you. We will jump, squeeze, float or scramble down every rapid, waterfall or canyon we encounter. You will have an adrenaline-packed day to remember. We Gorge Walk at a number of venues within Wales. On arrival we will kit you out in a wetsuit, buoyancy aid and helmet. One of our Guides will give you a safety briefing before you get underway.

Our gorge related activities vary due to river/rainfall levels but we have a wide range of venues to choose from so we can provide you with the ideal location to suit the needs of your group - our rivers range from slow and sedate to white and wild. Gorge Walking is an all-year-round activity so it's ideal for a birthday party activity, a family day out or a stag or hen party.

Dinas Rock

A popular venue we use is Dinas Rock Neath. In the 19th Century this area was a Gunpowder Works which supplied ammunition for the coalfields of South Wales. This was the ideal location for such an industry thanks to it's thick deep woodlands and the tumbling water being a natural power source. During a Gorge Walk here at Dinas Rock you are scaling some of the waterfalls that were used to produce power for the Gunpowder Works and you will also see remains of ammunition from the Gunpowder Works. As well as discovering such fascinating history during your Gorge Walk you are also surrounded by a natural environment which serves as the playground for your safe and guided session with Adventure Beyond.

What to bring to your Session

Gorge walking is also a fantastic way to learn about the river environment - our sites are ecologically important sites and your guide will be on hand to show you each location's social and natural history. This activity makes an excellent alternative Geography Field Trip for school and college groups. Our minimum age is eight, and we will ask you to bring your own footwear (old trainers are ideal), towel and dry clothes to change into afterwards.
