Competition Winners

Last week we had a great bunch of students in from Tudor Grange Academy. They were a really worthwhile group who put in loads of effort to make the most of the opportunity having won the Alpkit Foundation competition for a free residential with us.

The students went rock climbing, canoeing, gorge scrambling and climbed Snowdon with us.

Snowy Days.

The last two weeks of January have seen Boulder Adventures delivering six Prince’s Trust Team programs. Intended to challenge the teams and the weather has certainly added to that challenge. With the temperatures dropping and the snow coming down the teams have had some spectacular scenes for the adventures and worked hard to prove what they can achieve together

Now a Licensed Transport Operator for 2019.

At Boulder Adventures we have a number of transport solutions for our customers. We like to walk if possible, certainly the greener option. You can walk to our water sports centre or up Snowdon from the Bryn Du Mountain Centre. Other times we need to use a minibus or van. Many customers drive to us so have use of their own transport for the trip in which case we can allocate an instructor or kit van to your course. Many school groups will turn up by coach, if this is the case we can then provide minibus transport to get to the activities that require it. We are a licensed transport operator so you can trust our staff are fully qualified and experienced for driving as well as instructing. Having our own vehicles on site means we can also offer pick-ups from Bangor Train Station for those that require. Being a licensed transport operator means we can be pre booked for journeys without being on one of our courses. So if you are staying in Llanberis and need a drop off to start a mountain walk please get in contact.
