Snowdon is the highest peak in England and Wales, and one of the most challenging climbs for amateur ramblers at 1085 metres high. Push yourself to achieve one of the ultimate walking accolades, conquering Snowdon and marvelling at the majestic views from its peak. With a guide by your side you won’t have to worry about directions, never mind even looking at a map. On your way to the summit, your guide will show you all the spots of outstanding natural beauty.
You will meet the professionally trained guides at the centre of Llanberris where you will take a short ride on the Snowdon Sherpa bus to the top of the Pen-y-pass The Pen-y-pass will be your start point for the adventure.
From here your experienced guides will walk with you along the Miners path, this is initially a nice gentle route passing some pretty lakes and old mine workings before a steep ascent to the summit. The summit is normally very busy but you will have a chance to spend time here and have a photo taken at the top. As well as some of the most amazing views Wales has to offer, the top of Snowdon has a lovely cafe. If it is open you will also have the chance to grab a drink or use the toilets. Please note the cafe is not always open as this depends on the weather and if the trains are running. You will descend via the Llanberris path - this path shadows the railway line and returns you to Llanberris and your waiting car. At this point you may wish to visit a local watering hole to enjoy a well deserved drink! Please note this walk is approximately 11 miles.
