Adventure ahoy: Adventure Basecamp Wales is a scenic wild camping site in a peaceful rural location just outside Snowdonia National Park, with easy access to outdoor activities of all sorts within a short drive. If you're into karting, zoom to here sharpish: with one of the UK's largest Motor Sports Association-approved karting circuits, this is quite possibly going to be the park of all your petrol-themed dreams…
Apart from the world-class karting, there are plenty more reasons to stick around here for quite some time: the site lays on e-bike, mountain bike and hiking adventures, with several wild biking trails and a whole heap of walking trails straight from base (activities vary by season and booking ahead is highly recommended – put your request in the 'special requests' section of the booking form). If that sounds too strenuous, there are several lakes in the local area to laze around at, and the site is in a Dark Sky Reserve for idling after dark.
In between all that, Adventure Basecamp Wales guests have enthused about the team's excellent and friendly customer service and the utterly handsome views from the site. Another thing that gets a rave review here is the food: fresh bean coffee is served to keep you fuelled throughout your stay, alongside breakfast and lunch bites and homemade sugary treats.
The team highly recommends that you venture out to sample local Welsh products too, including Welsh meat, cheese, wine and local honey. There are plenty of farm shops and country pubs that your cordial hosts will be more than happy to point you towards.
Among the amenities are a sparklingly clean toilets and hot showers; free wifi is available in the main building.

From Adventure Basecamp Wales you can quite easily explore all the Snowdonia mountains, and, if you’re a keen scrambler, shin up epic Welsh ridges and the famed Tryfan mountain. The popular Ogwen valley, a hiking haven, is within easy reach: ask the site team for details.
Take a wild swim in Wales’s wild natural lakes or try out the outdoor watersports on offer, from paddleboarding, canoeing and rafting to the world’s biggest inland wave lagoon at Surf Snowdonia. As well as natural glacier lakes, the region has acres' worth of natural forest with mountain bike trails.
More peacefully, the site is surrounded by pretty villages, such as Betws-y-Coed, 25 minutes' drive away: stop at Conwy Falls for a photo opp or try freefalling, plummeting, ziplining and swinging at ZipWorld Fforest treetop adventure park.
Right next to this are two underground attractions: Bounce Below, a trampoline park in the old slate caverns, and Go Below, where brave contenders journey through a mountain via a series of challenges ranging from ziplining through caverns to boating across a subterranean lake and abseiling down to the deepest point in the UK.
