About the Challenge

Snowdonia National Park in North Wales is synonymous with beautiful, rugged landscapes and wonderful but demanding trekking. The highest mountain in England and Wales at 1085m, the views from the top of Snowdon itself are spectacular and on a clear day you can see for miles along the coastline.  Our challenging weekend trek takes us not only to Snowdon’s peak, but traverses other mountains and valleys in the National Park, providing a relevant, rewarding experience on a range of terrain and gradients. It will help you to gauge your fitness and training progress, boost your confidence and improve skills under the guidance of experienced leaders.

Detailed Information

  • Being vegetarian or having other dietary requirements is not usually a problem provided you let us know well in advance. If you know there are plenty of foods you cannot eat you may wish to bring extra snacks from home so you can top up your energy supply.

  • Your trip will be led by experienced Discover Adventure leaders, assisted by mechanics and support crew depending on the type of trip. Our leaders are selected for their experience in harsh wilderness environments, knowledge of travel in remote areas, friendliness and approachability, sense of humour and ability to safely and effectively deal with any situation that arises. You are in very safe hands with a Discover Adventure leader. The crew will have radios and/or phones, medical kit and other safety apparatus where necessary, as well as vehicle support.

  • Space is limited and hard-sided luggage is not recommended, so we suggest your kit is packed in a soft rucksack or expedition kitbag. Ask us about our specially-designed low-cost kitbags if you don’t have one already. You should bring a small daypack to carry for items needed during the day as you will not have access to your main luggage until the evening.

  • Your safety, and that of the rest of the group, is our highest priority. Our trips are designed and planned with safety in mind. Your crew will be equipped with communication devices, medical kit and other safety apparatus appropriate to the destination. They always have access to our 24-hour emergency UK back-up. Our leaders are responsible for safety on the trip, and will make any changes to the itinerary they deem necessary should local conditions dictate. Pre-trip administration is all done with your safety in mind.

Preparing for the Challenge

  • Clothing

    We could be exposed to bad weather at any time so be prepared for all conditions. We provide you with a detailed packing kit-list on registration, as well as details on useful discounts you are entitled to as a Discover Adventure customer. We are always available if you need advice.

  • Our challenges attract people of all levels of experience and fitness, all ages and backgrounds. We expect all participants to train hard in advance to achieve this challenge, but we respect everyone’s limits. We design our challenges so that everyone can go at their own pace: this is not a race. For logistical and safety reasons we sometimes need to re-group, so the front-runners will find themselves waiting for the slower ones. Please relax, and remember that this is a team effort that enables people to achieve their personal goals and earn sponsorship.
