Snowdon Summit Camp (Postponed)

Please Note: Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions in Wales this event has been postponed and will be rearranged for later in the year.  Please keep an eye on the information bar for next available date.

 

Snowdon is probably the UKs most popular mountain and rightly so. However, if you are bored of the crowds and want to see this mountain from a different perspective what better way to experience this unique part of Wales than sleeping on the summit of its highest mountain?

Join us for this fantastic and sociable small group event to the summit of Snowdon the highest mountain in Wales for a summit bivouac. Join a like-minded group, get active and savour the wide expansive views across North Wales.

The Snowdon summit camp  is one event not to miss this summer.
