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.
