Adult Courses

We run a number of adult courses throughout the year, which are usually organised by groups of friends or colleagues who want to try their hand at some outdoor activities. Plas Gwynant provides a base for them to stay, excellent instruction and equipment during the day, and all meals are included. Most adult courses run over weekends, although we can organise them at other times when requested.

These courses prove to be particularly popular, and participants often surprise themselves with what they achieve during the activities. They also provide the basis for an excellent social gathering for the weekend, with most groups coming back time after time.

Most participants choose to complete a mixture of outdoor activities during their stay, but if groups wish to focus on certain activities that they have experience of or skills they wish to develop, we can support that as well.

Subject to demand, we also run courses based away from Plas Gwynant for people that would like to take the next step.  Examples of these courses are:

  • Sea kayaking trips in the Western Isles of Scotland
  • Winter mountaineering trips in Scotland


We have also been used as a base for groups to do their own thing, examples of this are:

  • Family re-unions
  • 40th birthday celebrations
  • Canoeing and Mountaineering club meets

“We had a great day out with the kelly kettles, knifes and other things. Debbie put a lot of work in and we made fires and basically just ate a lot, enjoying being outside.  It seems like a very smooth operation in a beautiful location, thanks.”  – Snowdonia Canoe Club July 2014.
