Open Group Expedition:

8th & 9th July 2017 - Just one place left

 

or flexible dates on a private guided basis

 

For a real 'back to nature' adventure you can't beat walking up into the beautiful mountains and finding a secluded spot to pitch your tent and spend the night. 

 

We offer wild camping and guided mountain walking two day expeditions in Snowdonia, North Wales either for individuals as part of a small group on set dates, or on a private guided basis for small groups of between 2 and 4 people on mutually convenient dates.

 

We provide light weight but strong mountain tents and suitable cooking equipment.  

 

These expeditions take place in a remote and usually quiet part of the Snowdonia National Park.  We meet at lunch time on the first day to discuss and plan the adventure, then head off up into the mountains for an exhilarating walk with stunning scenery.   

 

During the wild camping experience we follow the principles of 'Leave No Trace' minimising our impact on the fragile mountain environment.  You also learn about the law relating to wild camping in the UK.  We find a suitable place to set up camp early evening, and cook our evening meal to be eaten in magnificent surroundings!

 

On the morning of the second day, after waking up in the wilderness of the high mountains and enjoying a breakfast in the outdoors, if the weather permits, we walk to the summit of one of the stunning mountains, before walking back down the hill, arriving back in civilisation around lunch time.    

 

You must be physically fit to participate in these events as you will need to carry a large rucksack up the steep mountain side over rugged and sometimes boggy terrain.  In addition to your day walking kit, you will also need to carry your tent, sleeping mat, sleeping bag, cooking equipment and food.  All of this can weigh around 13 - 14 kilos.
