Overview

Tackle the highest mountain in England and Wales under a blanket of the night sky. Trekking Snowdon at 1,085metres during the daylight forms a great challenge, but by using your head torch to light your way and with the moon as your back drop, the summit brings another huge sense of achievement to such an iconic feat.

Seeing the sunrise across Snowdonia National Park will be a memory to cherish for a lifetime! Upon your descent you will enjoy the awe-inspiring mountain landscape views and be impressed with the distance you covered under a starry sky.

Itinerary 

Day 1

Arrive late afternoon in time for an introduction and briefing about the weekend’s events and prepare ourselves for the challenge ahead. Everyone is welcome to join us for dinner, before we then head to bed to rest up for the ‘real’ challenge ahead.  

Day 2

Register ourselves onto the challenge from 2am and have some ‘breakfast’ before switching on our head torches and setting foot along the trail at 3am. We will either climb via the Llanberis path or PYG Track, the route will be weather dependant. After a tough climb by moonlight, we reach the summit of Snowdon and take in the fantastic scenery as the sun rises. We take some group photos to celebrate our success at the summit, and then head back down to Llanberis for some well-earned celebration brunch. 

Approx 7-8 walking.

Essential Information

Weather & Safety

The weather in the Snowdonia National Park can change very quickly, what can start out as a good day can soon become very poor. It is very important to be well equipped and prepared for all conditions. Our route will be ascending and descending a great deal and a good level of fitness is required. The Leader reserves the right to change the itinerary at any time should the conditions require it. In these circumstances we will make the best alternative arrangements possible that maintain the integrity of the original itinerary.

What are the group sizes?

Our maximum size group is 12 per Mountain Leader with a minimum of 6.

Who will be leading the group?

At Adventurous Ewe we employ experienced and fully qualified Mountain Leaders to accompany and lead you. They are Mountain First aid trained and have extensive experience in leading in the mountains and the three peaks challenge. They will be ultimately responsible for your safety on the mountain and the rest of the group. They will be carrying full safety equipment and mountain first aid kits with them.

How fit do I need to be?

A good level of walking fitness is required. This is a tough challenge and physically and mentally draining, sleep deprivation plays a part here, affecting some people more than others. As much preparation and training you put in beforehand the better chance of success you have.

Get The Right Equipment:

Our seasons now are only determined by the temperature of the rain! You need clothing and equipment for all weathers. It is very possible to encounter sub-zero temperatures and near arctic conditions, heavy rain and high winds during the night. Walking boots are essential – don’t even think about training shoes. You should always have a minimum of one whistle within your team, some extra food, and a head torch with spare batteries in your rucksack. Personal first aid kit.

What do you do to protect the environment?

We limit the impact we have on the surrounding environment and stick to paths so as not to cause further erosion on the mountain. We will ensure that all rubbish is disposed of responsibly and take all rubbish away with us.
