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 the small village of Capel Curig, where you’ll meet 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.

Today we are taking on the next highest mountains after Snowdon, thankfully though, once we summit Carnedd Llewelyn (1064m) we don’t have to drop down too much before ascending Carnedd Dafydd (1044m).
We’ll then proceed to walk to our first day’s camp situated in picturesque isolation next to a beautiful Llyn (Lake).

After a peaceful night under the stars and after our breakfast, we’ll descend following a small river to the foot of what was once voted Britain’s favourite mountain by Trail Magazine, the iconic Tryfan, with it’s distinctive rocky, sharp ridge, it’s instantly recognisable.

We skirt round, then up and over, before heading back down to Roman Camp, which dates back to the first century.

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

Now for our final day, which apart from one steep section, is nowhere near as long as the previous two days. Today we’ll make our way up the lonely mountain of Moel Siabod (872m), the highest in the Moelwynion mountain range.
On a clear day you can see 13 of the 14 highest peaks in Wales, the views are breathtaking!

We then make our way homeward bound down to Plas-y-Brenin where we’ll stop for lunch by the tranquil beauty of Llynnau Mymbyr and you can take boots and socks off and revitalise your feet in the water after what has been an unforgettable adventure.
