STORY BY Debbie 4th February 2021

This year, National Outdoor Centre Plas y Brenin is celebrating 65 years of helping people of all ages and skill levels get active in the outdoors.

Whilst the activities might have changed over the years, from horse riding to mountain biking, their love of adventure and commitment to educating people about the benefits of the outdoors, along with helping nurture skills and confidence in the outdoors has never wavered.

Founded in 1955, Plas y Brenin is a world-renowned provider of adventure sports training. From a base in the scenic heart of Snowdonia, Plas y Brenin’s work is multi-facetted, from providing accessible opportunities for all to experience the outdoors and discover their sense of adventure, to developing inspiring coaches and leaders in adventure sport.

The centre also offers an extensive programme of personal skill development courses in rock climbing, hillwalking and mountaineering, kayaking, canoeing, sea kayaking and mountain biking, enabling those to develop their skills further, regardless of their skill level. The centre also delivers a diverse and vibrant events programme, with adventure talks, environmental lectures, mountain safety lessons and sector-leading conferences.

The big prize on offer is an incredible adventure break for two. Whether you want to try something new or challenge your pre-existing skills, the adventure break will be personalised for two to enjoy four activities over four days and nights, with accommodation and food provided during the stay.

Also on offer are five runner-up prizes of epic adventure activity day; full days of either rock climbing, abseiling, guided mountain walking, stand-up paddleboarding, canoeing, kayaking and guided mountain biking, which are tailored to skill level and age, to ensure maximum enjoyment.
