Gay Outdoor Club
The activity club for gay men and women and their friends

North Wales

The North Wales GOC is a very active, very friendly group of gay men, lesbians, bi-sexuals of all ages. With over 100 members we engage in many activities. Although our main focus is walking, we also have offered abseiling, underground exploration, scrambling, and camping and youth hostel trips. We also hold pub social nights and other indoor socialising events.

Events are held across the large North Wales area from Snowdonia to the coastal strip, from Anglesey to the Clwydians.

For more information regarding the North Wales GOC contact Clive on 077 06410 747or drop a line using the contact page.

In January 2010 our group featured in a BBC radio 4 recording. So we are famous now.

The All Wales weekend away at St David's

14 Sep 2015 | North Wales, South Wales, West Wales Groups

The All Wales weekend for those who don't know, is a weekend away every September, organised in turn, by each the three groups in Wales, North Wales, South Wales and West Wales.

The three year turn around, comes around, really quickly and this year it was the turn of my group West Wales and we chose the very beautiful and (in my opinion) spiritual St David's....

The Aberglaslyn Pass

8 Nov 2014 | North Wales Group

The Glaslyn may not be one of the largest rivers in Wales, many will never have heard of it and those that have may well struggle to say where it is, but we think it is one of the best riverside walks going!

Starting in the picturesque village of Beddgelert our walk first headed to the famous Gelert's grave....
