guided adventures

If you have got the skills and now want to put them to good use in cool places, then these are the trips for you. They are all run at low ratios with small teams to maximise safety and choice in some of the most beautiful mountain environments we have had the pleasure of visiting.

For every trip we run we have chosen destinations that can be visited from the UK without the need for air travel to try and minimise our carbon footprint. We are constantly striving to make sure our trips are environmentally sustainable. 

I have listed them in the order that we run them throughout the year, pick your season and come and join the adventure.

We also run Private Guiding throughout the year in Snowdonia.  Read More.

the snowdonia fifty

NEW for 2020

This is my attempt to put together a list of 50 adventures to be had in Snowdonia that will work all year round in a variety of different weathers. 

I wanted to put together a list that would inspire us to stay local, to enjoy what we have here in North Wales and to inspire us to get out whatever the weather might throw at us. Hence the list is not all climbing – it is meant to be something anyone can aspire too, perhaps with a bit of training along the way.
