meet your leader gail

Introducing Gail - a qualified Mountain Leader (summer) who has a passion for natural surroundings, wildlife and the mountains. She has lived in Snowdonia now for 9 years in an area she fell in love with from an early age. She has many years of walking and trekking experience both at home and abroad - Scotland, England, Nepal, India, California, Spain, Australia, New Zealand and of course Wales. She constantly finds refreshment, solace and inspiration from nature and the mountains, in green places away from it all.

She is intuitive and spontaneous and enjoys carefully planning tailor-made walks to suit. She knows that the experience of walking out into the mountains can be both relaxing, exhilarating and self empowering. Gail works part-time as a voice therapist for the NHS and knows firsthand the importance of stepping out of the 9-5 grind....

  • creating opportunities to relax and unwind
