Dyfi Valley Archery Adventures (have-a-go events)

Dyfi Valley Archery Adventures offers half-day, full-day and evening sessions of field archery (simulated bowhunting) for beginners. The session includes training, equipment and insurance but not transport or accommodation. Experienced archers will introduce you to traditional wooden arrow archery, field style, and when you are shooting safely and confidently will guide you around our beautiful 'big-game' field course in the woodlands of the Dyfi Valley. You will be able to test your skill against up to forty realistic three dimensional animal targets and pictorial target faces from rabbits to wild boar. You may shoot against each other in competition or just for fun; you may use your own equipment, if you have it, by prior arrangement. There are few more absorbing and relaxing sports which are open to all ages and which take place in such beautiful tranquil surroundings (between Machynlleth, Powys and Aberdyfi, Gwynedd.

Evening sessions (spring and summer only, 3 hours approx.) are £40 plus £10 per person. Corporate enquiries are welcome; guided big game rounds for experienced archers are available by arrangement.
