Snowdon UK Trek 2018
Want to experience Snowdon’s breath-taking, rugged scenery? By taking on Wales’ highest mountain, you could help us provide care for people living with a terminal illness and their families.
If you take on our nine-mile Snowdon trek, you’ll navigate up a winding route to the summit. Be prepared for a steady climb on a mixture of rough and well-kept pathways.
At 1,085m (3,560ft), you’ll be able to admire the breath-taking views of the Snowdonia National Park at your feet with Anglesey and the Irish Sea in the distance.
Is this trek for me?
A team of experienced mountain guides will be there to show you the way.
You’ll need a good level of fitness with prior training to take part in this challenge. You should be able to walk over varied terrain for between five and seven hours, including steep inclining and declining pathways and steps. In the months leading up to your trek you should also have done two to three walks of a similar length.
Training tips will be provided.
This challenge is self-led. You’ll be provided with direction on where to walk and there will be a team of mountain guides along the route to provide assistance and check you're staying on course at all times. If you wish to walk with a guide please inform the events team on 07545 419 569 before the day of the event.
