What To Expect 

Typical Itinerary- During this adventure, you’ll explore diverse coastal regions:

  • The limestone coast of Llandudno and the Orme: Expect a dramatic coastline with thrilling caves, imposing cliffs, seabirds, boulder-strewn beaches, and a unique ‘seaside atmosphere.’
  • The quartzite coast of Anglesey: Discover a climber’s playground from a fresh perspective, with tidal races, rugged vegetated coastlines, and a rich variety of flora and fauna, from the seals of Puffin Island to the porpoises of the North Coast. Sandy beaches also await.
  • The wilderness of the Llŷn Peninsula: Navigate the dramatic coastline of North Wales’ most exposed peninsula. From the pilgrimage to Bardsey Island, the serenity of the Tudwals, to slipping beneath 1000-ft cliffs on the North Coast, you’ll have the chance to meet the dolphins of Porth Ceiriad or surf on classic beaches – something for everyone.
