Pace and Paddle

A walk with a difference!  We’ll be doing some good walking between Trefriw and Llyn Parc (in the Gwydir Forest), and also a 2-hour pack-rafting session on the lake. Pack-rafting is where you carry your light, raft with you, then inflate it when you get to the water. The two hours includes the walk to the lake, so we will have about an hour on the water. Life jackets will be provided.

There will be two groups of 8 people:

  •  The first group will go by our minibus to Hafna Mine, then walk up to Llyn Parc (1 or 2 miles) for the pack-rafting session. Afterwards they will walk back to Hafna Mine for lunch, then back to Trefriw (5 or 6 miles).
  • The second group will walk from Trefriw to Hafna MIne to join the first group for lunch, then on up to Llyn Parc (a total of 5 or 6 miles) for the pack-rafting session, then return to Hafna Mine (1 or 2 miles) to catch our minibus back to Trefriw.
