At 1,048 meters in elevation, Snowdon is the highest peak in Wales and is easily accessible by hiking along the Llanberis Path.

Starting from the village of Llanberis, this 14-kilometre round trip walk is the easiest trail up to Snowdon's summit, making it the perfect route for casual hill walkers and families.

As we hike through hike through this national nature reserve, we will have the chance to see some of the flora and fauna that are native to this part of Wales, including the famous Snowdon lily, which is not found anywhere else in Great Britain.

Once we've reached the summit, we'll enjoy spectacular views out over our surroundings. The view from the top of Snowdon is the best one in the British Isles. If it is a clear day, we will be able to see Ireland, the Peaks District in England, southern Scotland and the Isle of Mann.

Before we begin walking back down, we'll also take a moment to stop in a the summit cafe and enjoy a refreshment (not included in the price) before hiking back down to Llanberis.

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.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
