Description

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.

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.
