Day 1: Arrival
When you arrive in Llanberis your guide will give you a detailed briefing of the adventure, then you’re free to explore the town or rest up in your hotel room. Tomorrow’s challenge awaits you.
Day 2: Snowdon Challenge
After breakfast you’ll hit the road for your first activity cycling along rolling country roads through the beautiful Welsh countryside. Follow the shores of Llyn Padarn and skirt along the edge of Snowdonia National Park while the peak of Snowdon beckons in the distance.
Arrive at the base of the peak and change into trekking clothes for a hike up the Snowdon Ranger Trail on the west side of the mountain.
Zigzag through lush green turf, pass through a flat boggy area, then ascend to the ridgeline before reaching the summit for a victory photo and incredible views of nearby lakes and distant lands.
Descend via the more gradual Llanberis Path, finishing in Llanberis itself.
Swap gear once more for a 4km paddle around Llyn Padarn. You’ll complete a large circle on the lake, enjoying views in every direction on the way.
Finally, cross the finish line for a glass of champagne. What an achievement!
17km cycling, 15km walking, 4km kayaking, total 10 – 12 hours
