As Wales has been able to continually develop its fantastic tourism industry, adventure attractions have become a more and more popular type of development that is proving to be of extreme desire. As such, the Welsh Government has put into action a ‘Wales Year of Adventure’ campaign that will officially name this year – 2016 as the year of adventure. With this, many attractions have enjoyed an increased level on attention, engagement and number of visitors.

With real world wide head turning developments such as Surf Snowdonia, Zip World and Bounce Below, it’s no wonder that the country has seen front page spreads across some of the biggest newspapers and online media outlets in the country, with many amazed at what exactly Wales offers.

North Wales in particular has been able to cement its status as the adventure hub thanks to the likes of these huge developments.

Some of the popular destinations within North Wales for adventure activity attractions include

Zip World – Europe’s largest and fastest zip wire that takes riders of a lake and quarry

Bounce Below – A unique, in-cave/underground trampoline heaven that boasts phenomenal location

Surf Snowdonia – The world’s first in-land surf arena that is open to the public and provide the perfect two metre wave, as well as a ‘splash and crash’ arena.

Dragon Raiders Group Activity Park – The selected location of CITV’s Bear Grylls programme, this park provides survival camps, Segway’s and paintballing.

Coed Y Brenin Mountain Biking – a world class mountain biking destination that receives visitors from across the country.

While the area attractions are by no means limited to the above, these give a real insight into the way that many of the attractions seem to be going. The evolution and gearing up towards the more adventure inclined visitor is certainly one to consider ahead.

As numbers of tourists increase, so does the requirement of quality accommodation, whereby we do our bit by providing excellent places for those needing caravan parks in North Wales. Caravans are becoming a more popular choice as the desire to be more mobile has grown, thus meaning visitors can pitch up somewhere new whenever they like. While we love to welcome touring groups to our holiday parks, we also offer static accommodation through lodges and static holiday homes for both purchase and hire, meaning you can have access to the nearby area and its fruitful adventure attractions.
