Activities in Snowdonia & North Wales with Backtrack Camping

Get more from your visit at Backtrach Camping and explore the wonderful landscape of Wales.

Half Day Wool Spinning

Learn to produce yarn from the fleeces of our resident sheep. We'll show you how to card fleece and spin it into yarn using a traditional wheel. All the wool you spin is yours to take home and knit/weave into whatever you please.

Adult £15 each. Child (12 and under) £7.50.

Other Outdoor Activities

Booking in advance is essential for the following.

For small groups and families, we can arrange a variety of activity days through local outdoor experience provider Antur Draig. These include:

Canoeing and Kayaking

You'll be accompanied to a mountain lake and provided with all the safety kit and tuition you need to enjoy sampling canoeing or kayaking. Hot drinks will be provided as well.


Particularly enjoyed by youngsters as it includes making fires in various primitive ways without the aid of matches and cooking over the fire a variety of goodies to eat.

Mountain Adventures

Such as ascending Snowdon by routes unknown to most, or a less well known mountain that you can have almost all to yourself, where the only other people you are likely to encounter are sheep, mountain goats and myriad varieties of birdlife.

Historical and Nature Walks

Our area is littered with iron age forts, stone circles, ancient mines and many other fascinating historical remains. We're also lucky enough to share the area with an abundance of wild flora and fauna. We'll tailor a walk to suit whatever aspects inspire you.
