All things wonderful about Wales

Wales will be celebrating Saint David's Day tomorrow, Tuesday 1st March.

St David's Day to me signifies the start of the Spring and as I am typing away this afternoon looking out the window, the sun is shining high in the bright blue sky with only a scattering of cloud. The gorgeous vibrance of the Daffodil which flourishes throughout March always makes me smile too.

I also know that pretty soon after celebrating St David's Day, Mother's Day and Easter are all too quick to follow. That's why I thought I would get ahead of the game and make sure everyone gets to planning their pressies in plenty of time!

Mother's Day rocks up first on Sunday 3rd April...

Activity Wales have years of experience when it comes to arranging special treats for mum and this Mother's Day snapping up one of our fantastic gift ideas will truly say thanks to mum in style.

If you are looking for a special and thoughtful gift then choosing one of our Mother's Day Experience Day Gift Vouchers will not disappoint.

For the more adventurous of mums who are never shy to try something new we have exciting activity experiences such as Harness and Hydro Zorbing, Quad Biking and Coasteering.

If you're mum is still a fan of the old favourites then within our immense portfolio you can still find reputable experiences such as Spa Day Packages, Horse Riding and Pleasure Flights that will never fail to raise a smile.

Struggling to choose? Then think about purchasing an Open Activity Gift Voucher with Activity Wales and let mum make her own decision!

And then Easter to follow beginning with Good Friday on 22nd April...

Easter a great time to get all the family together to have an abundance of fun and eat an excessive amount of chocolate for breakfast.

Planet Zorb in North Wales

Roll up, roll up and let's get dizzy racing downhill with this new and exciting addition to our ever growing Activity Wales portfolio. Introduce Zorbing in North Wales...

Planet Zorb are offering you an amazing opportunity to try the latest adventure in North Wales, Zorbing. Planet Zorb have created a brand new, specifically designed Zorbing course that will see you cover ground of over 230 metres bouncing and rolling like a hamster in a transparent ball. This course is actually the second longest run in Europe.

Based in Gwynedd, Planet Zorb offer both Harness and Hydro Zorbing.

Harness Zorbing has you strapped inside the inner capsule of an enormous plastic air-cushioned ball, face to face with your fellow rider. As you gain speed there is no need to worry about the bumps and bouncing as your outer transparent ball will absorb any impact.

Hydro Zorbing on the other hand adds a splash of a respectable 30 litres of water to the experience! For the Hydro Zorbing you are not within a harness, so you will find yourself and a friend sliding from side to side, back and forward as you continue to roll down the hill.

Activity Wales have now created Experience Days that you can purchase online for both Harness Zorbing and Hydro Zorbing with our fantastic new provider Planet Zorb.
