Snowdon, Snowdonia

Our guided mountain walks in Snowdonia will take you over the jagged peaks, steep rocky slopes and airy ridge lines and will make anyone feel like a proper mountaineer. Formed over a period of 650 million years, the peaks of Snowdonia were created from ancient oceans, volcanoes and glaciers. Evidence of their dramatic birth is still evident across the national park, you just need to know where to look!

Sir Edmond Hillary used these mountains to train for Mount Everest before his successful first ascent in 1953! There is something for everyone in North Wales so take your pick. Snowdon isn't the only mountain here!

Snowdonia is home to my favourite mountain, Tryfan. Join me on a guided mountain walk in Snowdonia to learn why Tryfan is my favouite and I am sure you will discover your favouite mountain here too! Shy away from the crowds of Snowdon and discover what else Snowdonia has to offer!
