Activities Cardiff, Swansea, South Wales Conditions Report 05.05.2016

Gorge Walking, Gorge Scrambling, Canyoning, Ghyll Scrambling activities near Cardiff, Swansea and South Wales

The weather seems to have calmed down after last week and conditions should be good for both Gorge Walking and Canyoning this weekend. Water levels should be constant on both the Sychryd and the Mellte Gorges across the weekend and the water being held in the land should also ensure the waterfalls remain a constant level.  As always, any rainfall in the previous 12 - 18 hours could lead to flashing on the Gorges, increasing water levels and water flow force, so make sure you are aware of the level of rainfall on the mountain regions to stay informed and safe.

Coasteering activities near Cardiff, Swansea in South Wales

The swell is set to be low this weekend with a fairly low tide meaning we could see acceptable conditions for Coasteering in parts of South Wales, particularly Caswell Bay and Ogmore-by-Sea in the Swansea area. The swell is also set to stay small into the early part of next week too.

Wind could play a factor however, particularly into Sunday, with the potential of strong gusts. Easterlies should be OK but be aware of any Westerlies or Southerlies and as always, keep an eye on changing conditions, particularly swell size and the tides.

If conditions do become unsafe, you can always head inland and take advantage of some of the beautiful Gorges South Wales has to offer with a Gorge Walk or Canyoning.

Surfing, Surf Kayaking, Beach Activities and Paddle Boarding

The small swell over the weekend and into next week that makes Coasteering a possibility means the surfers are going to find the right conditions much harder to come by. You may be able to head to more exposed areas around Porthcawl and Swansea and use the tidal conditions to help. The other option is to start your weekend early and get down to South Wales on Friday when were expecting slightly bigger swell.

Your final option if you just want to get outside and enjoy yourself is to try out some Coasteering, Gorge Walking or Canyoning.

Activities in Cardiff, Swansea and South Wales

We'll be taking groups on both Gorge Walks in the Brecon Beacons and some Coasteering in Swansea this weekend. Wedding season is also upon us now so we're in full flow with Stag Do's from Cardiff, Swansea and across South Wales joining us for some activities as they look for something a little different. We've also got some beach activity days coming up over the next couple of weeks too.


As always in South Wales you need to be aware of the potential of flashing in the Gorges after any spell of heavy rain. Temperatures in the rivers will once again be around the 4°C  mark and sea around around 10°C so you will take precautions with regards to thermal protection. We are expecting strong gusts into the later part of the weekend in South Wales so as always stay informed of local conditions and stay safe.
