Snowdon Sunrise and Sunset

A wonderful new adventure

It’s easy to understand why climbing to the summit of Snowdon to watch the sunrise is one of our most popular adventures.

During daylight hours Snowdon is a wonderful challenge. Taking it on in the dark brings a whole new adventure in itself.

Climb to the summit of Snowdon at night to see the sunrise across Snowdonia. Enjoy the start of a brand new day with views across the mountains 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 England). Its rugged beauty attracts people from all over the world. Views from the summit have been voted the best views in the UK.
