Abseiling

Take in the beautiful scenery of the Gower Peninsula from a different perspective

If going down rather than climbing up is more your thing, then come and try one of our Abseiling Adventure days. You’ll complete heart-thumping abseils of different heights and character. The day has a real sense of journey as you travel to the different abseils via a variety of mini rock challenges like the ‘Horseshoe Cave’, ‘The Big Jug Traverse’ and ‘Rick’s Chimney’. If the tides are right you’ll even drop through ‘Giants Cave’ – a free-hanging abseil into a beautiful coastal cave.

You’ll get all of the best views of the Welsh coastline and Gower. If you’re lucky you may even have an audience of dolphins, seals, or sea otters from the sea below! This is also a great alternative to Coasteering, as we use the same stretch of coastline, so you’ll get to experience it from a new perspective.

ABSEIL ADVENTURE FAQs
Q. Do you provide the kit? A. Yes , we provide you with a harness and helmet.

Q. What should I wear? A. Wear comfortable clothing that you don’t mind getting scuffed or potentially torn against the rocks. Walking boots/shoes are ideal or trainers as a second option.

It’s always cooler and more breezy by the coast, so warm layers, hats and gloves and waterproofs if the forecast is anything less than hot and dry!

Q. Do we need to bring anything? A. Yes, you will need any medication (asthma pumps, EPI pens) If it’s sunny, make sure you’ve put sun lotion on, you can bring it along if you burn easily. Our guides can carry these items for you.

Q. Do I need to have any experience, can I skip any bits? A. The majority of our customers are complete novices. If you’re really not feeling it, then you can avoid the challenges.

Q. Do I need to be fit? A. A reasonable level of fitness is required. The session is approx 3 hrs long, plus the walk to and from the venue. So it’s a good 4hr day of moving along rocks and uneven terrain, while getting the adrenaline pumping! You’ll certainly sleep well that night!

Q. Do you have age limits? A. 7yrs old is the youngest. No older age limits apply.

Q. What if the weather is bad? A. We’ll still go ahead in the rain, so please be prepared for this. If we do have to cancel due to dangerous stormy weather, then an alternative activity will be offered. If we cannot provide you with an alternative, you will receive a full refund.

This will be entirely at your own risk and you will not the responsibility of the guide.

Q. Can I bring my dog? A. The coast path is ideal for dogs if you have a spectator to look after him/her. The abseil adventure is not a suitable course to bring the dog along due to the heights and drops.
