Do you fancy just getting away from it all? Getting away from busy campsites and caravan parks and the hustle and bustle of modern life and getting back in touch with nature in an adventurous setting where you carry your own kit and set up camp each night, watch the sunset over the mountains and sleep under the stars away from all the light pollution, in remote areas of outstanding natural beauty and tranquility.

Sometimes you’ve got to take a walk on the wild side … and camp there too!
For plenty of adventurers, wild camping is the ultimate escape into the outdoors.

Walk in the wilderness through mountain valleys and over mountain passes, seeing diverse wildlife, anything from wild mountain goats and horses to peregrin falcons and golden eagles, as well as the many beautiful mountain flowers and heather!

Come and spend  3 days trekking and wild camping with us and meet new friends in a small social group, led by an experienced Mountain Leader on what is certain to be an unforgettable adventure!

Formed over 400 million years ago, the wild Carneddau range is a wide expanse of high mountain and moorland to the north of Snowdonia National Park, just a valley away from the busy tourist bustle of Snowdon.
Often climbed from the Ogwen Valley, as they are conveniently placed opposite the Glyderau, home of the famous Tryfan mountain, they have a multitude of approach options.

“Mountains know secrets we need to learn. That might take time, it might be hard, but if you just hold on long enough, you will find the strength to rise up”
-Tyler Knott

We start our adventure from Llyn Ogwen, the glacial lake that is located in the valley separating the impressive mountain ranges of the Carneddau (home to Wales’ second and third highest mountains) and the Glyderau, home to the famous Tryfan.

After meeting your mountain Leader at 8.30am and after quick chat and kit check, you’ll make a start.
Make sure you’ve had a good breakfast as this is a tough but equally rewarding day.

Following Afon Lugwy on the Snowdonia Slate Trail, the river that spills out from Llyn Ogwen, we pass the mighty Tryfan on our right as we make our way to the small village of Capel Curig.

Here we can spend a moment looking around the famous Joe Brown’s, a well known and established outdoors shop and picking up any last minute items that might have sprang to mind.

After a brief stop we continue to the picturesque village of Betws y Coed, passing the beautiful Swallow Falls in an area of outstanding natural beauty, before heading into the forest to find our first night’s camp.

After a peaceful night under the stars and after our breakfast, we make our way southwest towards the village of Dolwydellan, where we’ll pass the remains of it’s castle and are treated to views of Moel Siabod (872m), the highest  mountain in the Moelwynion range.

We proceed taking in the stunning scenery, before we arrive at the most amazing of wild camping spots, with a forest behind us and a Llyn before us, surrounded by mountains.

Our final day, is a lot shorter than the previous two as we make our way back to Roman Camp, with views of  the Glyders and the Snowdon Massif.

Here we jump on the bus homeward bound, where we’ll stop for lunch on the shores of  Llyn Ogwen  and you can take boots and socks off and revitalise your feet in the water after what has been an unforgettable adventure.
