Mountain Walking

f your idea of a refreshing break is to reach a mountain top by walkers' routes then look no further! Our long weekends offer three days (four at Easter) of magnificent hill walking. Your guide will be a qualified and people-friendly mountain leader sympathetic to the fitness and wishes of the group. They'll chose routes tailored to the weather, your abilities and wishes.

Three days of Magnificent Hill Walking 
We've two different breaks - each emphasising different goals, but on both we aim to reach the top of a mountain on most days. Hence you should be fit enough to walk for about seven hours a day (including stops!) including at least 2,000 feet of ascent often over rough ground and with some steep slopes. However our pace will be slow and steady .

Over these long weekends we aim to share our knowledge of the quiet routes to the tops undiscovered by the usual weekend walker. This is the break for you if you've done some longer (over 3 hours) lowland or moorland walking but want to find out if mountain hikes are for you.  This is also the break for you if know you like mountain walking but don't want to follow the crowds and tick off the main popular peaks. You probably want the confidence of having a local guide to take care of the route-finding whilst you recharge your batteries with a hike off the beaten track.

2. Walk Snowdonia's Classic Peaks
 If you've done some hill walking before (or are a fit beginner) and want to touch the summits of Snowdonia's  well-known "must-do" peaks such as: Tryfan, Snowdon, Cadair Idris, Carnedd Llewelwyn and so forth in the company of like minded people, then this is the break for you. We aim to ascend one of these each day - but by walkers' routes - so don't worry no roped climbing involved!

Congenial Company and Cosy Nights 
After tea in bed and a splendid breakfast your leader will offer you route choices for the day. Then it's off out in the minibus (if we don't walk from the door) for a full day of great walking. 
When you get back there'll be a traditional country tea waiting to keep you going whilst you have your bath or shower ready for a marvellous dinner enjoyed with the leader and your fellow walkers, a glass of wine and tales of the day's experiences.
