Your guide will talk through the day over breakfast, pick up your packed lunch, then it's time to get into the mountains. England and Wales' highest peak is today's objective. There are various route options to the summit and the final decision on route will be taken by your guide on the day based on the weather and the group's ability.

Feeling accomplished and happily tired, relax back at the accommodation looking forward to a beautiful stonebaked pizza from the Snowdon Inn.

The team will have sole use of a Bryn Eryr, a great bunkhouse just outside Llanrug (about 15minutes away from Snowdon). Normally it would comfortably sleep 42 people(!), this summer is will be great for our small team and allow plenty of space for everyone to feel comfortable and have the option of their own room.

The bunkhouse has shared same sex showers and toilets. There is off road parking, WiFi, comfy mattresses, a beautiful pond and a fire pit in the garden for the sociable evenings and most importantly warm showers.
