Day 1 - Thursday

Departure Day

Your Welsh adventure begins. Meet your staff at Edge in Musselburgh, load up the buses before we head off to our destination of Betws-y-Coed in the stunning North Wales.

The journey is a bit of a long one but we'll have a couple of stops to stretch our legs and have comfort breaks.

We'll arrive early evening so it's a quick drop-off before heading to the pub for a hearty dinner.

All that’s left to do today is settle in, get to know your fellow adventurers and get ready for the exciting adventures ahead.

Day 2 - Friday


We start the day with a choice of Underground Golf, an 18-hole course, set 500ft below the ground in a disused cavern, and only accessible by Europe’s steepest cable railway, or Bounce Below, 6 trampoline-style nets built into an area twice the size of St. Paul’s Cathedral, there’s plenty to be explored in this subterranean wonderland


Back as one big group of adventurers, we'll take on Titan 2, an exhilarating seated zip line experience. Traveling over 1 kilometre with stunning views of the quarry below and Blaenau Ffestiniog with Snowdonia beyond, you’ll speed back down to earth in a seated position – all the better for enjoying those panoramic vistas.

We'll then head to the Caverns. A challenging underground course, Caverns is a one-of-a-kind experience that takes up to 3 hours and will leave you exhilarated and drained in equal measure. Set in a historic slate mine, the various nooks, crannies, tunnels and chasms have been brought back to life with 13 zip lines, as well as via ferrata, rope bridges, tightropes and more, to push your bravery and endurance to the ultimate test with real teamwork and encouragement required to help each other round the course.

Day 3 - Saturday


We begin the day with a bang and blow away some cobwebs with Velocity 2 the fastest zip line in the world since 2013! Soar over Penrhyn Quarry, where you can travel at speeds of up to and over 100 mph while taking in unbeatable views of Snowdonia.

Optional Tour - Penrhyn Quarry Tour to discover the history of slate mines

The afternoon is for the speed demons of the group with Quarry Karts, the UK’s only mountain cart experience, seeing gravity fuelled three-wheelers descend an obstacle-filled 3 kilometre slate track. It all begins with transportation up to the top of the quarry in red, military trucks, with the start taking place 1,500 ft above sea level, where you’re treated to incredible views ahead of an intimidating descent.

Day 4 -  Sunday


The group will be split in 2 and you have a choice of Plummet 2, a tandem rapid descent from a 100ft tower or Skyride 2, a 5-seater 80ft high swing where you get a bird's eye view of the stunning vistas of Snowdonia 


The afternoon sees us back as one big group where we tackle the Fforest Coaster, a Toboggan style roller coaster on the edge of Snowdonia, it’s located particularly close to the ground so you get an incredible sense of speed, reaching up to 25 mph. Not just an adventure for thrill-seekers, however, you can control the brakes, meaning you can go as fast (or as slow) as you dare!

This is followed by a Zip Safari experience you will not forget! A truly epic treetop adventure, Zip Safari 2 takes place right up in the tree canopy, up to 60 feet above the ground, and is the ultimate way to experience an exhilarating, outdoor activity while feeling challenged and having fun. Featuring 21 zip lines and 17 additional elements that include rope bridges, netting, balance boards – even a treetop surfboard!

Day 5 -  Monday


It's an early start to get breakfast and packed for heading back north to Scotland.

Don't be sad because it's over, smile because it happened!
