snowdon multi activity challenge

This new and exciting Snowdon Multi-Activity challenge involves a combination of cycling 17km around Mt Snowdon, trekking 15km to the summit and finally canoeing 4km across Llyn Padarn to the finish line.  A good level of fitness is essential as at times you will feel physically and mentally tired. However the sense of achievement and satisfaction from completing the challenge makes it all worthwhile!

Day 2: We wake up early for breakfast before a final briefing and the start of our challenge, with Snowdon behind us we begin by cycling along quiet and undulating country roads following the shores of Llyn Padarn passing through the slate quarries of Snowdonia National Park, after 17km we arrive at Llyn Cwellyn our first check point of the day. From here we swap our bikes for boots and begin the assent of Snowdon via the Snowdon Ranger Path which is thought to be the earliest of the six main routes to the summit.
