Enjoy the start of a brand new day with views across the mountains of Snowdonia and coast from Wales’ highest mountain.

Snowdon, or Yr Wyddfa to use its Welsh name, stands at 1085 metres and is the highest mountain in Wales (and higher than any in England). Its rugged beauty attracts people from all over the world. Views from the summit have been voted the best views in the UK.

We want everyone to enjoy their challenge and reach the summit in their own time so will walk at a pace suitable for the whole group. It is important that the group stays together with the leader/s. Depending on numbers taking part groups may be split into smaller groups of similar pace and ability.
