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 .
Hike Uncrowded Mountains
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.
