Snowdon Massif

1 Day

All year




* Summit one of the most iconic peaks in the Snowdonia mountain range

* Have your trip lead by a professional, knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide

* Test your skill to scramble by traversing the many craggy peaks


Tryfan Mountain (915m), with its pointed structure, is one of the most iconic and scenic peaks in the famous Snowdonia National Park in Wales, UK. Famous for its craggy peaks, its over 100 lakes and views over to Ireland, Snowdonia’s mountain range is a hiker’s paradise.

Tryfan peak dominates the horizon in the stunning Ogwen Valley and this ascending walk and scramble provides the hiker with a nice level of challenge without being overly exhausting. Those with a reasonable level of fitness, who are able to hike for several hours in changeable weather conditions, are encouraged to sign up.

We will follow the famous north ridge that rises from the valley towards the twin pillars of Adam and Eve and this will provide you with adequate challenges, scrambles and spectacular viewpoints along the way. The route down will be less steep and easier on those tired legs.

Local tradition says that on your first Tryfan climb you must jump from pillar to pillar. However, being located 3000 feet up and on a cliff’s edge, we won’t make this compulsory!

Join me now on this exciting day out in the beautiful mountains of Snowdonia and you won’t forget it!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
