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 Paul using the contact page.

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

A couple of sort-lived showers went everyoen diving into their rucksacks to extract a rainf jacket, but the precipitation had ended no sooner than the jackets were donned....

Cwm Eigiau disaster trail walk
