Snowdon from the Miners Track  

Snowdon Guided Walk


Course Stats

Climb Snowdon on a Snowdon guided walk. At 1085m Snowdon, or Yr Wydffa as it is known in Welsh, is the tallest mountain in England and Wales. On a fine day it is possible to see the Isle of Man and Ireland from the summit. Most of my guided walks are lead by Jen who is a fully qualified Mountain Leader.

You will normally be guided up the PYG track but sometimes we use other tracks if it safer to do so given the weather and conditions. Your guide will lead you at a steady pace and will make sure you stop for plenty of refreshment stops. It can feel like hard work but the reward of getting to the summit is amazing and you might even be lucky enough to get a great view across North Wales and beyond.

To book on a Snowdon guided walk please read the information on the booking page and then email me so we can sort out a date for you and your team.

If you wish to complete a more challenging route or would like to have a go at Crib Goch or the Snowdon Horseshoe then get in touch and we can arrange a private guided day.

Where and when do we meet? We will normally at Pete's Eats in Llanberis at 9am.

What kit do I need? Having the correct gear is essential - check out the kit list below.

Who can come on a guided walk? Anyone can join a guided walk, however under 18's must be accompanied by a parent.

Am I fit enough? The climb up Snowdon normally takes 5 to 7 hours and includes some steep uphill sections on a rocky path. Having sufficient will power is more important than fitness for most people!

What happens if the weather is bad? I will not cancel a walk because of bad weather - provided you have the right equipment it is possible to make the ascent in wet and windy conditions. If the weather is dangerous then an alternative walk will be undertaken.

Kit List: Walking boots, waterproof jacket and trousers, hat and gloves (needed all year), food and plenty of water, a warm fleece and an extra spare warm layer, camera, personal medication, a rucksack to put it all in, sunhat, sunglasses and sun cream, walking trousers or tracksuit bottoms - not jeans, a thermal base layer or similar. If you need more advice then just drop me an email.
