What's the difference between Gorge Walking, Gorge Scrambling and Canyoning?

Good question! When it comes to the terms “gorge walking”, “canyoning”, and “gorge scrambling”, there can be a lot of confusion. In Wales, all three terms are often interchangeable and typically describe the same activity. However, as you can see from the photos and videos of our Gorge Walking Wales experience this isn’t just a simple walk in the park!

We generally refer to the activity as Gorge Scrambling because it’s more accurate, but this term isn’t as commonly used, which is why we tend to use Gorge Walking in Wales.

How Much Is Gorge Walking in Wales?

The cost of Gorge Walking in Wales typically starts at £40 per person. However, it's important to note that this can vary based on several factors, ensuring that you get the best value for your adventure. The final price will depend on the size of your group and the specific kind of Gorge Walking adventure you're looking to undertake.

  • Group Size: Larger groups often have the advantage of reduced per-person rates. For instance, if you have a group of friends or family members joining you for the Gorge Walking experience, the cost per person may decrease, making it more affordable for everyone.
  • Adventure Package: The kind of adventure you choose can also affect the price. Some Gorge Walking packages may include additional services or specialised gear, which could lead to a higher overall cost. 

To get the precise cost for your Gorge Walking adventure and to explore any available discounts or special packages, we recommend reaching out to the team at Blue Ocean Activities.

This age requirement helps us ensure that participants have the physical and emotional readiness for the challenges and excitement that Gorge Walking offers.

Does Gorge Walking Go Ahead in the Rain?

Gorge Walking can indeed take place in light rain, which can add a unique dimension to the adventure. However, your safety is our top priority. In the event of extreme weather conditions, such as flooded rivers, we may (incredibly rarely) need to reschedule the activity to ensure your well-being. Our primary concern is to provide you with a safe and enjoyable experience amidst the natural beauty of Wales.
