19th-20th June 2021

We have taken our time to curate a wonderful, less travelled route on Snowdon for you. Once you set off from Llanberis you will briefly cross the iconic Snowdon Mountain Railway (the only railway to any mountain summit in the UK) on your journey towards the mighty 1085m summit of Yr Wyddfa, the mountains Welsh name.

This quieter route will see you cross a high pass beneath Moel Cynghorion before you join the Snowdon Ranger path that will then wind its way above the crag tops of Clogwyn Du’r Arddu, before meeting the summit ridge and your ultimate goal.  Once you’ve grabbed your summit selfie you will then descend back via the Llanberis path and cross underneath the railway, passing the Halfway House café. Finally, you will pass beneath the railway one last time before you exit the mountain path and return to the Royal Victoria Hotel to celebrate!

Total distance: 17.5km

Total ascent: 1118m

Total time:  6-7 hours
