An afternoon on the edge

Share unforgettable moments on a portaledge with friends. Drink in the exposure and spectacular views from this unique angle.

Traditionally the reserve of experienced mountaineers, we have been working hard to bring you a taste of the high life- literally…  and here it is! We are the UK’s original Cliff Camping providers…

A once in a life time experience. How many people do you know who have done anything like this? Come and give it a go!

Although intimidating upon first acquaintance, this adventure is open to all and requires only a confident approach.

If you’re looking for somewhere to stay to extend the trip check out these cottages.

On a sea cliff there is never a dull moment. Life and energy is in motion on all sides; waves lapping below, birds circling above and the fresh sea breeze on your face. The exposure and excitement of the portaledge is a hard thing to describe to the uninitiated.

We’ll cook up a hearty hot meal which you can enjoy as you relax on the ledge, a seal may be exploring below, or the sun setting as you soak in the serenity.

Sat comfortably on the ledge, blanket around your shoulders, glass of port in hand; life’s stresses become less important – this is time for you. For many people, such a powerful personal experience helps put life’s challenges into perspective. It’s ace.

We’ll meet in the afternoon and explain how the experience works. You will be carefully shown all the necessary skills to enjoy being on the ledge and stay safe, under the careful eye of our expert instructors.


Safety is our number one priority. You are always securely attached, it’s just as safe as abseiling or rock climbing. We will be on hand at all times to ensure everyone is safe, relaxed, and relishing the experience. This is what we do, and we are good at it!

Gaia staff have used portaledges all over the world, once spending over a fortnight living on an overhanging wall in the Venezuelan jungle!

The Welsh Weather

The portaledge experience in a wild Welsh valley is serene and unforgettable. As the weather in the mountains is often very different to that at the coast this can provide a good alternative.

If the heavens really open we do reserve the option of cancelling the trip – in this unfortunate case we will offer an alternative date to suit you, or return your fee.

Kit list

You just need warm clothes, and sensible trainers or light walking shoes, we’ll provide everything else.
