Gorge Walking, Coasteering, Outdoor Activity Conditions in South Wales

Gorge Walking, Gorge Scrambling & Canyoning Outdoor Activities

We've had some heavy rain over the last few days here in South Wales which has meant the river levels have risen noticeably. They are currently around the 0.4m mark but with a day of heavy rain forecast in the area again and a Met Office yellow warning today you are unlikely to be able to run an activity on the River Mellte this afternoon or evening. Depending on the amount of rainfall overnight, the levels may be acceptable tomorrow but it is vital you check the weather in the local area and reported river levels.

There is more rainfall forecast in the Brecons on Saturday, so you will need to be very aware of current levels, rainfall, etc before starting any activity on the rivers. Flashing will be a real danger across the weekend. Under no circumstances must you even consider entering the water without an experienced guide with you who knows the local area. You will also, as always require full safety equipment.

With the amount of recent rain the banks of the rivers will be very slippery, so even if you are just walking in the Brecon area near rivers, you need to be very careful and ensure you stay well away from the banks edge.

Coasteering Activities In Cardiff, Swansea & South Wales

Conditions aren't looking good for Coasteering along the South Wales coast this weekend. The swell is on the high side of what we would like and there are some strong winds due across the weekend too. You have a couple of potential options if you are staying in Cardiff, Swansea, Porthcawl, etc and want to take part in an outdoor, water based activity.

You may be able to head up into the Brecons and take part in some Gorge Walking or Canyoning, although as we've explained above that too may suffer from the conditions. You could also potentially head to one of our more sheltered bays and take advantage of some of the swell by having a decent surf.

Surfing, Surf Kayaking, Beach Days and Paddle Boarding

As we mentioned above, surfing could be your best bet for some water based activities this weekend in the South Wales area. There is some decent swell due, at around 4ft - 6ft and whilst there is a reasonably strong wind expected at times, if you head to some of the more sheltered bays, such as Caswell Bay in Swansea or Rest Bay in Porthcawl you should see enough protection for a good, enjoyable surf.

Newer surfers or weaker surfers may find the conditions on Saturday a little tough, but the swell could die down a little bit to 2ft - 4ft on Sunday, so this may be your best day.

Cardiff, Swansea & South Wales Stag & Outdoor Activities

We don't let a bit of weather get in the way of putting on a full weekend of fun filled outdoor activities! One of the big advantages of being able to run such a range of activities is that we can virtually always find something for our guests to do that they'll unlikely have experienced before.

We'll still be welcoming the usual mix of Stag Dos from Cardiff and Swansea, Hen Parties from Porthcawl and it's the start of the summer holidays so we've got some youth clubs and scout troops joining us next week too. We're not sure exactly where we'll be and exactly what the activities will be but we do know that they'll be fun, challenging and wet!
