Arthog Outdoor Education Centre is a purpose built residential centre within its own private grounds in a stunning location overlooking Barmouth Bay and the Mawddach estuary. The coastline is varied, with a mix of expansive sandy beaches, rocky shores and cliffs. The seaside village of Fairbourne is close by and the small coastal town of Barmouth sits across the estuary from us - accessible on foot via the railway viaduct.

The centre has established an excellent reputation as a leading provider of adventure activities, capitalising on the diversity and quality of activity venues in this extraordinary corner of North Wales. 

From here it is a short step to the majestic slopes of Cader Idris, the stunning coastline and Mawddach estuary, the challenging trails of Coed y Brenin forest and the historic towns of Barmouth and Dolgellau.


The area abounds with opportunities for enjoying the outdoors at many different levels, but equally offers the visitor a rare glimpse of a landscape influenced by human activity over thousands of years. Ancient burial sites, standing stones and hill forts, are intermingled with more recent castles, mines and settlements.
