In at the deep end; on your first day of hiking you’ll summit 7 of the weekend’s 15 peaks.
First stop is Foel Fras (942m), the northernmost of the Welsh 3000s. Follow the ridge to climb 3 more peaks in quick succession. Double back to catch Carnedd Llewelyn, the highest summit in the Carneddau at 1064m.
A steep hike takes you down into the beautiful Ogwen Valley to return to your hostel for the night.
8 – 10 hours walking
Day 2: The Glyders
Today you’ll tackle the 5 peaks in the Glyders. Your first goal is Tyfan (917m), the lowest of the Welsh 3000s but most challenging with a fun scramble at the top.
Cross a formation known as the “Castle of the Wind” to attain Glyder Fawr (999m), the highest peak in the range and the perfect place for lunch and to call it a day.
8 – 10 hours walking
Day 3: Snowdon Massif
Today, Mount Snowdon; the jewel of Snowdonia.
Follow the rocky ridge to the summit of Crib Coch. One last ascent and you’re on top of Snowdon (1085m), the highest peak. Take victory pics, and enjoy your final mountaintop lunch.
Depending on weather, you’ll complete the Snowdon Horseshoe or descend via the Pyg Track. Either way the scenery is spectacular.
