Snowdonia Adventures Latest Statement COVID-19

Updated 4th June 2020 – We can provide Private coaching/instruction on a limited basis -Yay!

Governing bodies have been advised by Welsh Government that the regulations do allow for private instruction provided:

  • The instructor is only providing instruction to one household at a time (the instructor counts as the other household).
  • Both the instructor and the clients stay within the travel restrictions (five miles for most people).
  • There is no sharing of equipment, so the clients must already have their own equipment.

 

Private guiding, coaching for individuals, and small groups from the same household

We can provide 1:1 private courses and guiding to individuals and small groups from the same household subject to certain conditions being met.

Those courses and activities will probably be lowland, hill and mountain based where social distancing can be achieved safely.

Activities such as rock climbing, coasteering or gorge scrambles/canyoning will Not be possible until a later date, due to the need for closer proximity of our staff and clients meaning safe social distancing would not be possible.

The Law in Wales, Scotland and NI is different to the new changes announced for England on 10th May.
