Dip your toe into new experiences

Just add water...

Let's take it easy. It's time to disconnect and live in the moment. Our watersports care less about sports and more about feel-good therapy. Adrenaline adventure activities have their place but not here. We prefer calm and soothing slow adventures where you can watch the ripples in their water, feel the bubbles around your skin and hear the quiet hum of the natural landscape of North Wales.

Why North Wales?

Beginner friendly activities

Snowdonia Watersports

There are over 250 lakes in Snowdonia National park including the popular Bala lake (Llyn Tegid) and Llyn Padarn. There really is something for everyone. And we love to find quiet spots for peace sakes. Outside the park, we’re partial to exploring the calm bits of the River Dee.

Why choose a water adventure with LLiW?

Wild swimming and paddleboarding days are suitable for all levels but ideal for complete beginners. That means, making them as calm and stress-free as possible so you can just enjoy the water activity! There’s no rush, no jargon, no need to be the fittest, fastest or strongest. All of our North Wales watersports experiences are guided by women-led activity providers. To help keep you safe and acquire new skills in and on the water, it makes sense to learn from the best. Plus, the outdoor sector is still heavily male-dominated, so by adventuring with us, you’re helping to keep more women in the outdoor sector in business!

Guided paddleboarding & yoga

no pressure to stand up or stay dry

We’re proud to work with Caz from SUP Lass, a highly qualified WSA guide accredited by the Leave No Trace organisation. Most of the sessions happen at North Wales‘ Loggerhead’s country park at a private sheltered lake.

Paddle board hire available

You’re welcome to bring your own board or hire one from SUP lass – she has everything you’ll need to get on the water safely. 

Experience SUP Yoga

There’s nothing quite like a floating meditation or a chance to improve your mobility, strength and balance with plenty of giggles guaranteed. Moving on the water gives you the opportunity to explore your body in a different way compared to dry land. Join a SUP yoga class in Wrexham. 

Guided wild swimming & yoga

Dip, splash, float - whatever feels great

Safely explore

Getting into open water can feel intimidating and scary, but you’ll have Harriet from HEB coaching, an open water swimming coach to guide you and keep you safe in the water. Explore the clean blue lakes of North Wales, whilst learning how to incorporate mindfulness and meditation into your day for the sake of your mental wellbeing.

Frequently asked questions

We hover around Snowdonia national park, and the Dee Valley and from time to time, head to the North Wales coast.

 

Currently, it’s wild swimming, paddleboarding and SUP yoga. We’ve been asked about surf, coasteering, and white water rafting but feel they don’t encapsulate the calmness we’re looking to provide. Kayaking is a strong possibility but we’ve yet to find the right kayaking providers. We’re constantly growing so keep a lookout for future adventures!

No. For swimming, a bathing suit and footwear you don’t mind getting wet is just fine. Some choose to have a neoprene jacket to keep their arms warm. You are welcome to bring your own wetsuit.

For paddleboarding, it’s recommended to layer up and accept your clothes may get wet. Some choose to wear a wet suit or a dry suit but it’s not mandatory and we do not provide them. Please remember to bring footwear you don’t mind getting wet.

Yes – it’s our hope that if coming alone, you’ll meet some likeminded people for future adventures!  Equally if you bring a friend – the more merrier.
