Surf Snowdonia Pods
The pods are amazing! After riding the waves you can just to do one of the Surf Snowdonia pod packages. They’re are perfect for families as each sleeps up to 4 people.
Moreover, you can enjoy a beer on the decking and seating area outside of your pod area.
You should that the Adventure Parc Snowdonia Camping Pods don’t have toilets or showers inside in them. But, there is toilet and shower facilities on-site.
Are dogs allowed in the Adventure Parc Snowdonia Camping Pods?
Sorry, no they don’t accept dogs in the camping pods.
How does Surf Snowdonia work?
You will have to do either one of the surfing lessons or you can pay to just used the wave pool. The artificial lagoon sends waves up and down the lagoon every couple of minutes.
Depending on your surfing ability is where you will surf in the lagoon. Better surfers will go towards the middle of the lagoon and beginners will go towards the end.
The Snowdonia adventure parc says there is roughly 45-55 waves every hour for you to enjoy.
Is Surf Snowdonia open all year?
However, you can still visit the walks that are nearby. And, you can purchase tickets online when ever during the year.
What is the Snowdonia Surf opening times?
In seasons the Parc usually opens from 8am-11pm.
Crash and splash
The crash and splash is the other alternative to the surfing. It’s a water obstacle course for both children and adults. I never did this activity but I watched it and it did look pretty awesome 🙂
You will get a briefing how to use the equipment and you will be allocated a time slot to use the Snowdonia surf crash and splash.

Surf Snowdonia Review
We arrived to a welcoming reception and were allocated a glamping pod by the side of the Snowdonia Adventure Parc lagoon side. The pods sleep up to four people, with two single beds and one double, however an important reminder is to bring your own bedding and pillows or you might be in for a sleepless night!
Outside each pod there is a seating area and artificial grass to sunbath if you’re lucky enough to have some sunshine. Don’t forget to make use of the hot tub and sauna’s situated by the lagoon lakeside, a perfect way to end a perfect day! The Surf Snowdonia review is looking good so far!
#day 2 surfing
Day two started off wet and miserable, which didn’t give us much get up and go.
Despite the rain we was ready for some awesome surfing on the Snowdonia Adventure Parc.
After squeezing into my wetsuit we watched a quick safety briefing and learnt the basics on land before heading into the water. Despite the sun shining the water was still freezing, however we soon forgot about that when the surfing fun started.
Wave one and we both fell straight off our boards, however with every wave we go better and better until we were riding out the wave to shore.
Hands down one of the best experiences ever and I would recommend it to anyone. Our 90 minutes were up and unfortunately it was time to head home. We will defiantly be returning to Surf Snowdonia in the near future to practise for the real thing in 6 weeks’ time when we head of to South East Asia for an adventure of a life time and hopefully the water will be a few degrees warmer over there! We couldn’t rate the Surf Snowdonia review any higher!

However, the walls are free and provide just as good views. Furthermore, the streets of Conwy are mega to just walk around and see all the quirky shops. There are also plenty of great coffee shops.
