Go Below Underground Adventures offers precisely that – exciting and exhilarating adventures that take place below the ground! You will find Go Below nestled in the beautiful Betws-y-Coed, which certainly doesn’t seem like the sort of place that could be hiding something as thrilling as this.
The attraction is best for those children aged 10 and above, as the full underground adventure experience lasts a whopping five hours. It is fantastic value for money, but littler people may be too tired to reach the end, so keep that in mind.
What can you do here? Well, it would be easier to say what you can’t do, but we’ll try anyway – there’s abseiling, scrambling, boating, climbing and even zip lining, all of which takes place deep underneath Snowdonia!
Thankfully it is all fully guided, so you’re accompanied by experts every step of the way. In case the action and excitement isn’t enough, you also get a bit of history about the slate caverns you’re making your way through as you climb and traverse.
Apart from a torch and maybe a camera, the other thing you should not forget is some food – you can enjoy an underground picnic! How many other people can say that?
Go Below is located on the A5 trunk road at the junction with the B4406. It is easy to get to from the motorway and is close to Blaenau Ffestiniog. On the same site is the Conwy Falls Cafe, a great place to refuel afterwards.
