Snowdon Trek

The trek

Snowdon is situated in the glorious mountain range of Snowdonia, where on a clear day you will be treated to some absolutely spectacular views.

Whether you’re looking for an adventure, meet like-minded people or wish to make the world a better place by raising funds for some of the most deprived people on the planet; take on this superb challenge in the heart of Wales, climbing from the foot of Snowdon to its summit in one day.

Climbers will be given expert mountaineering guidance from team leaders, helping each participant to conquer the 1085m tall mountain. The total trek will take approximately 5 hours up and down the rocky terrain. The route is liable to change in line with weather conditions to ensure the safest route is taken.
