Qué harás

Drive through CWM Penmachno, pass the quarry to the end, meeting point on the left, oppersite chapel. Come in wellies. The reviews capture the experience, please read below as written by people's experience:
Imagine driving over a single lane mountain track to a tiny hamlet, hiking up to mine shaft hidden in a forest. The host then unlocks the rusting bars & you walk in a dark tunnel dug 160 years ago, as fresh water streams out, taking you with head torches deep under the Welsh mountains & into abandoned caverns & waterfalls. It's magic, Alice can unlock. Hearty, wet, exciting & magical.
We really enjoyed this experience. It’s a fair trek to the mine but a beautiful one through the woodlands walking up a stream... uphill! The views were amazing!! The mine itself was great and very wet. There’s one part where you climb up a waterfall/steep stream! This was lots of fun but quite challenging and exhausting. Once out the mine, there’s another steep uphill walk. Alice is lovely, very chatty! She isn’t a fountain of knowledge on the mine like her husband, but clearly very experienced walking this route! It took nearly 3 hours as no rushing, no issues waiting for group, we looked around an abandoned village. No phone network here.Highly recommend this trip, very good value for money.
Other things to note
Wellies and water proof coat needed. Bring snacks and water.

I have been exploring the slate mines of North Wales for over 10 years. There is a nice mine at CWM Penmachno, it's an interesting route through, the mountain and out the top. Just need wellies, I provide hard hats and torches. I am a qualified mental health nurse and can provide encouragement and support. I am also a member of the British Caving Association. You need to be able to manage a three mile walk and stairs. I can also give information about the local community and it's history.
My son first went through this mine at the age of 3 years and my father in law was 80 years. I am happy to take children free on this experience.

Fantastic experience, well worth doing! Incredibly exciting, and interesting, with beautiful locations. Great for those looking for an adventure. The waterfall and pools inside the mine were astonishing.

Super trip, Mary knows so many interesting facts about the history and workings of the mine. The trip includes plenty of stops to look around and take photos. Walking up the stream is fantastic. Would definitely recommend the extra walk to the village if the weather allows.

Great afternoon exploring the slate mine and derelict village. Mary was a lovely guide and easy to chat with. Wellies are a must!

We thoroughly enjoyed Mary's tour of the old slate mines, and learnt so much about this tradition along the way. Such a great afternoon from start to finish. Our 6yr old loved it!

We had a great time today. It's quite feat to impress my children these days but they loved the mine and village. The mine is really atmospheric - you can get a sense of what it must have been like to work there as well as the impressive feat of constructing the cavern system. It's incredible to think there is such vast and complex structure underneath the beautiful landscape. Walking up through the underground river was fun. While some bits you have to think about in general it feels pretty safe and underfoot isn't slippery as I presumed it would be. Mary was a great guide - really knows the history of the mine and is engaging and happy to answer all questions. The scenery out of the mine is lovely. We saw some peregrines flying on our way back too. I'd really recommend this tour. Because it's small and the cavern feels remote it's really special.
