Snowdonias Classic Walks - 2 Day

  • Hike
  • Hillwalking
  • Beginner


Snowdonia is home to some of the UK's most dramatic and beautiful landscapes. On this weekend Snowdonia hillwalking getaway, you'll take to some of Snowdonia’s Classic Walks, which could have you journeying into Cwms formed by ice age glaciers, walking by legendary lakes, on paths marked by our ancestors, all with a story to tell.

Your instructor will chat with you about your interests and aspirations & tailor each day to suit your ability; whatever you’re looking for, we want to ensure you get the most from your time spent with us in the mountains.

Our instructors will introduce you to some of the more remote areas of the national park; seeking out idyllic journeys through the rugged, open countryside and introducing you to the many rare species of flora & fauna, some of which are unique to the area. You will be spoilt with some incredible views while you learn about your surroundings on a weekend of discovery & wild beauty.
