  • Cnicht Circuit
    4-5 hrs
A beautiful mountain, not nearly as high as Snowdon, but with a particular charm and atmosphere. Nicknamed the 'Matterhorn of Snowdonia' you get a good mountain feel
and the chance for a short scramble to the summit.

  • The Ardudwy Way
    5-7 hr days
A new spectacular walking trail for North Wales opened in 2010, covering 50 km easily divided into 3 parts. The main route takes you on a journey through many timelines, from an old Coaching Road to ancient Burial Sites to 19th Century Mining remains. Mostly you have views of the Sea on one side and Mountains to the other. The trail is suitable for low level walkers and lends itself to a slow relaxing pace. Pont Scethin, Ardudwy Way

  • Cadair Idris
    7 hrs
A beautiful high mountain with stunning deep glacial lakes. Choice of ascents up a scree, through a woodland with waterfalls or an easier switchback. A rugged mountain with fabulous views over the Mawddach estuary, to the Rhinogs and out to sea. An absolute gem. Llyn Cau, Cadair Idris
  • Snowdon Circuit
    7+ hrs
A sought after walk up the highest mountain in Wales. Proper mountain terrain, rocky tracks, craggy landscapes, stunny views if clear but very atmospheric even if not. Route chosen depending on ability, experience, weather and mountain conditions on the day. A walk to remember! Snowdon Standing Stone
