Guided Walk Description

We start from Nant Gwynant and wind our way up onto the higher levels of the mountain. After negotiating the upper slopes we arrive at the summit of Snowdon! Our descent route is the reverse therefore the first part in particular is steep and loose scree before we reach the path proper and begin to descend the valley. We have the option here to visit the cafe at Nant Gwynant which offers excellent snacks and hot meals. A walk of around 8 miles.

Note: All our staff are qualified, knowledgeable and will always strive to give you the best experience coupled with ensuring your safety and others.

Guided Walk Reviews

We loved walking through the forest to start the day and the waterfalls as we made our way up to Snowdon. Lovely day out.
