Welcome to
Bryntysilio Outdoor Education Centre

Climbing Mountains, Changing Minds, Making a Difference


Bryntysilio sits in ten acres of its own grounds, situated two miles outside Llangollen in North Wales.  We use the rivers, hills, canals, lakes and mountains within the beautiful surroundings of North Wales and Snowdonia to engage children in the landscape.

Bryntysilio has a long-standing reputation for offering quality courses in adventure learning, safely delivered by our highly qualified Adventure Tutor team.  We provide a wide range of adventurous activities through our residential, day and outreach courses to schools, organisations and companies from all over the UK, here in North Wales. The choice is yours, and whatever you choose, we know you will go away having had an amazing time, gaining confidence, new skills, and great memories, inspired to go on more adventures of your own in the outdoors!

“But what if I fail of my purpose here? It is but to keep the nerves at strain, to dry one’s eyes and laugh at a fall and baffled, get up and begin again.”

Robert Browning
