Glyderau Guided Walks

Our guided walks on the Glyderau offer something different for the regular hillwalker. The ruggedness and complexity of the Glyderau provide options to try easy scrambling along some of the more popular routes or you can opt for a challenging day's walk combining different peaks such as Elidir Fawr and Y Garn. The Glyderau can provide stunning views over to Snowdon, the Carneddau and down to Nant Ffrancon but they can also be difficult to navigate so your guide will look after this whilst you enjoy the unique experience of travelling over these ancient rocks.

Here's what Mike and Jane from London thought of their guided walk on the Glyderau:

"The weather was terrible but Steve made up for it with his enthusiasm and coaching as well as his local knowledge. Will book again."

Guided Walk Description

We offer guided walks over different areas of the Glyderau but here's how a typical day would be like:

Starting at Llyn Ogwen we make our way up and into the heart of the Glyderau via our chosen route.

The exact route will depend on the weather on the day but we can access the higher ground via some Grade 1 scrambling where a head for heights and sure footing is required or we can head upwards via the many walking routes available. 

The cost is an inclusive day rate which means when you book, it is exclusively booked for you alone or for you and up to 7 additional members of your group. This means unlike other companies, we won't cancel your booking because of insufficient numbers. We keep our ratios low so that you get a personal, quality experience and whether you are a solo traveller or you bring some friends along, we'll make sure that you are looked after. We hold the Eryri Gold Ambassador Award and are a Snowdon Visit Specialist which means we have invested time and effort in improving our knowledge so that you get a first class experience.

Please contact us for private guiding days and larger group discounts. We offer these walks through summer and winter and we can arrange a date to suit you.

Note: All our staff are qualified, insured, experienced and hold current first aid qualifications.

Guided Walk Schedule

I was impressed by the geology of the Glyderau which Steve described in detail as we walked. Thank you!
