Classic Walks in Snowdonia

Classic Walks in Snowdonia
If you enjoy hill and mountain walking and would like to be introduced to the fabulous opportunities around North Wales then we offer a guided classic walks in Snowdonia course. Whether it is a few hours gentle stroll between cafes or an all-day mountain challenge, we have it all.  
 

Do you want to come and experience the classic walks in Snowdonia? Hike the very best routes and be shown the most amazing views and locations? If the answer is yes then our classic walking in Snowdonia will open a door to a side of the mountains you never knew was there.

Many lowland walkers want to challenge themselves by climbing bigger and bigger hills, what this means is eventually you are going to have to climb a mountain. Officially this is a peak above 600 metres, in many people eyes they see a mountain as a steep rocky peak. Fortunately, in Wales this simply isn’t the case. There are plenty of Mountains that have very pleasant routes to the top where you have to go out of your way to find any rock or scree. So if you want to walk up a mountain rather than climb one this is the course for you.

The classic walks we use are found all over Snowdonia and we can move around to get the best of the weather. Typical routes are

  • Snowdon Ranger Path,
  • Y Garn,
  • Moel Siabod,
  • Carnedd Llewellyn,
  • Elidir Fawr
  • Meol Elio
  • Mynydd Mawr,
  • Nantle Ridge
  • many more of the Welsh Munros’ (14 peaks).

As well as guing on these routes, we can also take the time to introduce some navigational skills. So that should you wish to return or venture out on your own then you will have the foundations of the skills you need to be an independent hillwalker.
