Be guided in Snowdonia by a magical moonlight and starry sky for your night stand up paddleboarding adventure. It is truly a special way to SUP in North Wales, experience being close to the water, senses heightened to hear wildlife. Snowdonia has been awarded Dark Skies Reserve due to the outstanding quality of the night air! We are pretty proud as its 1 of only 11 dark sky reserves in the whole world, impressive! If conditions are good we also run sessions in a sheltered bay in Anglesey. We are stoked to be featured by The Guardian as one of the 12 of the best night-time activities in the UK. We have been fortunate to see 25 shooting stars whilst floating on the water.

So come and join Psyched Paddleboarding to paddleboard on a starry night in Snowdonia, North Wales. Create wonderful memories and experience special moments.

Note: Paddleboarding experience is essential, so please book onto a Beginner SUP session to learn the basics.

This was my first time doing SUP and it was brilliant. Went to a stunning lake and paddled out under a full moon and star studded sky it was absolutely beautiful. I loved the whole experience from start to finish. I thoroughly recommend Psyched Paddleboarding.
