Hello and Welcome

Welcome to Snowdonia Mountain Guides we have lived and breathed rock climbing and mountaineering in Snowdonia for the last twenty years. It is the last thing we think about at night and the first thing that crosses our minds when we wake up. We have lived what can only be descibed as a dream lifestyle where the mountains and adventure are right on our doorstep. In doing so have come to know mountains and cliffs of North Wales intimately. What we offer isn't just a course in how to climb, navigate or ascend a mountain, instead we offer something more, an adventure into the unknown. An experience that we hope will help define your future enjoyment of the mountains of Wales and beyond.

Our guides are among the best there are in North Wales and our head coach prides himself on getting to know his clients, their abilities and what they want to achieve. In doing so it enables us to handpick routes to take you to your mental and physical limits under the watchful eye of our coaches and guides. In the process we will give you one of the most exhilarating experiences of your life. We don't sell holidays, we sell mountain adventures.
