Walk and crawl through large caverns and small tunnels to explore one of the local limestone cave systems.
Caving offers the potential to raise confidence and self esteem.
Benefits of caving
We take you from the centre to the Gower Peninsula for a long day of sea adventures, where you explore the coastline close up. This activitiy involves a lot of climbing, jumping and swimming.
Your coasteering adventure will be tailored to meet the abilities of your group. We can offer this as a long activity day, or you may wish to combine it with an overnight camp.
A wet and wild day of river-rock hopping, sliding down rapids, scrambling, climbing and crawling up and down waterfalls and jumping into plunge pools.
Benefits of gorge walking
Often the first thing our groups do after their journey to the centre is walk up to the top of their first mountain, only 15 minutes away.
Enjoy a picnic lunch at the top of the mountain, by a stream or a sheltered cairn. A mountain day offers a fabulous educational and memorable experience.
We have a number of on-site activities which can be tailored to suit the age and ability of your group. These include high and low ropes courses, an abseil tower, a kayak pool, a challenge wall and balance beam, as well as other problem solving group activities.
Orienteering is a great opportunity to work independently or collaboratively. This activity takes place on our centre grounds or in the forest and demonstrates how quickly you can learn new skills.
By starting with considerable support and feedback, groups quickly progress to working on their own and experience the challenge and satisfaction of reading a map. This may be by looking for markers, or by recreating "search and rescue" scenarios.
On our on-site dedicated facilities or the local limestone crags, rock climbing engages the body and the brain in an exhilarating blend of natural movement and overcoming fears.
There are lots of choices for watersports at Longtown; a kayak or stand up paddleboard session, a canoe river adventure, or enjoy a sedate journey along the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal through the stunning Brecon Beacons National Park.
What does a typical open canoe journey involve?
