Watersports Snowdonia Style

With its miles of stunning coastline, beautiful lakes and rivers, there is plenty of opportunity in North Wales to take part in some of the best water sports the UK has to offer. As Wales is celebrating its incredible waters this year with The Year Of The Sea, we thought we would introduce you as to what is available when it comes to Watersports Snowdonia Style… CANYONING As it involves working your way down natural river gorges/canyons, Snowdonia is a great place to try out canyoning. To get down the canyons, you will use a mix of walking, scrambling, climbing, jumping, abseiling and swimming. It’s high adrenalin and not for the faint hearted, but one of the most fun watersports you can do here. FOR MORE INFORMATION ON CANYONING, PLEASE CLICK HERE.

Sadly however 88% of us will fail…. and the reasons why?….35% of us set unrealistic goals, 33% don’t keep track, 23% forget about them and 1 in 10 made too many.

Make your resolutions public – you are more likely to succeed if others are watching what you’re doing!
