You will then fly through the forest at exhilarating speeds!

ZIPWORLD SLATE CAVERNS - 1 hour scenic drive from Natural Retreats Llŷn Peninsulaa


ZipWorld Caverns
Zip World Caverns is a remarkable, uniquely exhilarating and atmospheric underground adventure that has been inaccessible for nearly 200 years. It is the ultimate all weather adventure! Navigate a 8m long gap in the rock, by opting to either ‘walk the line’ and scale the 25m drop using just a 12mm wide rope to stand on, or to inch your way, swing-by-swing, using the 14-rung monkey bars. Once successfully completed, you’re faced with the ‘stairway to heaven’, the third and highest via ferrata consisting of 36 steps that takes you to the highest point on the Caverns course, 30m above ground. And from here you meet your final challenge: the steepest zip wire in the UK.



ZipWorld Titan
The ultimate group zipping experience, Titan is currently the largest zip zone in Europe. Zipping in a seated position, you are afforded stunning views over Blaenau Ffestiniog and down the valley ahead. Zip World Titan encompasses three zip lines - Alfa, Bravo and Charlie. Each rider travels over 2,000m. The total length of the zip lines is over 8,000m!



ZipWorld Bounce Below
The breath-taking site, in a former slate mine in Blaenau Ffestiniog, North Wales, lets you play, slide, roll, jump and bounce from net to net in a cavern the size of a cathedral. Visitors enter a network of enormous caverns hidden underground, once home to a working Victorian mine, and now brought back to life as the only subterranean playground of its kind, offering a unique adventure in a beautiful and historic location.
