Wales: Women's Snowdonia weekend expedition


Women's Snowdonia weekend expedition // 22nd - 23rd September - £234 + ticket fees

Snowdonia National Park is the home of Welsh mountaineering.

With its rugged mountains, craggy faces, and rocky ridges, it is the perfect playground for a weekend of hiking and wild camping with likeminded women.

You'll leave invigorated, having explored some more remote areas that you might not necessarily venture to alone.

So what's included?

  • All main meals are included

  • Guiding by Insured Mountain Leader & First Aid qualified instructors

  • Mountain safety & first aid equipment carried by your instructors

  • Hire of tents at roughly £20 for a lightweight 2-person tent available

Itinerary:

FRIDAY
If you are staying in the area the night before we leave, your best options are Llanberis or Bethesda.
From there, JT Expeditions will organise a taxi pick-up and drop-off to start and end points of our hike.

SATURDAY
We will be hiking the Carneddau and wild camping amongst these rugged mountains, 19 of which are over 600 metres in height, including Carnedd Llewelyn which is the 3rd highest mountain in Snowdonia.

SUNDAY
We will walk the Glyderau. This range is slightly smaller but is one of the finest examples of a glaciated land form in Britain. It's fairly rocky and was shaped by glaciers during the last Ice Age around 10,000 years ago!
