A good, full day of hiking for people with reasonable fitness but not much mountain experience.

What To Expect
If you and some friends would like to climb Snowdon (or indeed any other peak in Snowdonia) without having to worry about the planning and navigation, and you'd like to have an expert lead the way and make sure that you stay safe, then this is the adventure for you.

Based on what you'd like to achieve and on your fitness levels I'll design a route which introduces you to the mountains in a manageable and fun way, allowing you to move at your own pace and take in the beautiful surroundings whilst still being challenging enough to give you that buzzing sense of achievement once you're back down.

Routes will be very flexible and can be easily changed or adapted based on the weather so you can rest assured that whatever the conditions, you'll remain safe.

How Long Will We Be Out For?
We will aim to have an early start (09:00 would be ideal) and be out for around 8-10 hours, depending on the route, weather, amount of light and people's fitness levels.

How Fit Do I Need To Be?
Even though we'll be going relatively easy routes we're still climbing a mountain so you'll need a reasonable level of fitness in order to make the most of the day. There will be plenty of breaks for people to rest and refuel.
