Snowdon Sunrise March – ABF The Soldiers’ Charity – August 2018
Date/Time: 18/08/2018, 1:45 am - 9:00 am Location: Padarn Lake Hotel, Llanberis
Snowdon Sunrise March
A starlight march to the summit of Snowdon with ABF The Soldiers Charity. A once in a lifetime adventure to watch the sunrise over Snowdonia National park from the highest point in Wales.
Leaving Llanberis at 2.15am we will head along the Llanberis Path in the light of our head torches, reaching the summit of Snowdon (or Yr Wyddfa to use it’s Welsh name) in time to see the sunrise from one of the most beautiful destinations on earth. We will return along the same path in the first light of dawn, reaching Llanberis just in time for breakfast.
