Why Choose Arete?

Highly Qualified and Experienced Members of Staff

At Arete Outdoor Centre we employ highly motivated and experienced members of staff who are enthusiastic about the outdoors.  On our team we have members of staff who are qualified teachers with school teaching experience in both the primary and secondary field. Other members of staff have a wealth of experience and hold some of the highest qualifications in the outdoor industry. This mix of staff gives us a great knowledge of what is needed to provide effective activities for all groups, something not all centres can do. All members of staff are passionate about the outdoors and participate in different activities in their own time.


We can offer a range of different activites to suit the wishes of the group and fulfil curriculum requirements. Requirements can be discussed with a member of our experienced team.


Arete is based just outside Llanberis and central to all activity locations.  The North Wales coast and mountains of Snowdonia are within easy reach of the centre. This allows us to make the most of the time spent here.


Arete has a 77 bed centre which can be used by large or small groups.  It can be sectioned off to meet the requirements of different groups. The centre offers catered and self catered options.
