Thank you! You're one step nearer your Snowdon Sunrise. Find out more below, including how to book.

Is it for me? 

Yes, you can do it! If you are moderately fit, climbing Snowdon is definitely within your reach. Although Snowdon is one of the highest mountains in the UK and the tallest mountain in Wales, it is probably the friendliest for the novice walker to climb. You will follow the Llanberis path, which is the longest and most gradual of the six main paths to the summit of Snowdon, and offers fantastic views of Cwm Brwynog, Llanberis and over the Menai straights towards Anglesey. 

We’ll also send you a training plan once you sign up and we also offer an 8-mile pre-event training walk on Saturday 15 June from Winchcombe to Cleeve Hill and back. You can meet the team, ask any questions, get your legs ready for your challenge and, of course (and most importantly), finish off with a well-deserved cuppa and cake. 

How far do we walk? 

  • Distance: 9 miles (14.5mm) (in total there and back)  
  • Ascent: 3,199ft (975m)  
  • Trekking time: about 6 hours (in total)  
  • Grade: medium
