Snowdon Trek – Boomerang Centre – September 2018
Date/Time: 22/09/2018, All Day Location: Snowdon, Llanberis
We are trekking to the highest point in Wales to support Boomerang
Snowdon is the highest mountain in Wales, and at 1035metres is higher than any mountain in England. It sits majestically in Snowdonia National Park, its rugged beauty providing you with the most amazing opportunity for adventure.
The Boomerang team are inviting you to join them on a Snowdon adventure to fundraise for this wonderful charity.
This trek will take the Llanberis Path to the summit, arriving by lunchtime and (fingers crossed) for the most amazing views across Snowdonia.
You can find out more about Snowdon and the Llanberis Path here.
