Tour Overview

Claim the ultimate bragging rights when you hike the highest and toughest peaks in Snowdonia national park. The 14 Peaks is a famous 24-hour challenge that only the toughest and bravest (or craziest?!) undertake. We prefer to savour our hiking a little more though, and even over 3 days this is no walk in the park.

Itinerary

icon Day 1 : Friday

Location: Betws-y-Coed

Accommodation: Hotel

Meals: Dinner

Arrive at your comfortable 4-star hotel in Betws-y-Coed on a twin-shared basis.

As a solo traveller you’ll have peace of mind of only sharing with one other guest and of course if you’re bringing a friend even better, you can have the room to yourselves!

Enjoy a welcome evening meal with your guides

icon Day 2 : Saturday

Location: Betws-y-Coed

Accommodation: Hotel

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch

Once you’re fuelled up for a big day of hiking, we’ll drive you to your starting point. Your epic hiking experience will begin near the northerly point of Snowdonia.

Head straight up into the Carneddau (“the cairns”) mountain range. A large plateau covering 10% of the area of Snowdonia, the Carneddau features six of your Welsh peaks. Pick them off one by one, beginning with Foel Fras at 942, taking in the third highest peak in Snowdonia, Carnedd Llewelyn at 1,064m, and finishing your big day on Pen Yr Ole Wen at 978m.

From here you’ll be taken back to your accommodation for a well-earned rest.

Within walking distance of your accommodation there are a number of bars, restaurants and cafés.

icon Day 3 : Sunday

Location: Betws-y-Coed

Accommodation: Hotel

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch

After a good night’s rest, get your walking boots on for the second day of your Snowdonia hiking adventure.

You’ll pick up where you left off yesterday, starting with Tryfan. At 915m it’s the lowest of the 14 peaks, but what it’s lacking in height it makes up for in ruggedness. It’s a sign of what’s to come today, with the Glyderau being a range of big slabby peaks. A real contrast to yesterday.

You’ll conquer five more peaks today. Pause for the classic photo on Glyder Fach’s famous cantilever stone, before concluding day two by summitting Ellidir Fawr and descending to Nant Peris. From here we’ll take you back to your hotel.

Kick your boots off, fill your stomach and sleep well.

icon Day 4 : Monday

Location: Betws-y-Coed

Accommodation: Hotel

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch

We saved the biggest til last! The Snowdon Massif is home to Snowdon, the highest mountain in England and Wales at 1,085m high.

It’s also the busiest peak in the national park, with around 500,000 visitors each year. Which is why we saved the biggest til Monday. So while everyone else is at work, you can enjoy this monolith of a mountain.

Make sure you’ve brought your head for heights. Today you’ll warm up with a grade 1 scramble up Crib Goch, followed by a knife-edge traverse. Completing this is a badge of honour in itself.

Next on your bucket list is Crib Y Ddysgyl, the second highest peak in Snowdonia at 1,065m. And finally, ascend Snowdon itself.

Take it easy at last, as you enjoy the walk down. And get ready to celebrate your achievement with a well-earned beer or two in the local pub.

icon Day 5 : Tuesday

Location: Betws-y-Coed

Accommodation: Hotel

Meals: Breakfast

Enjoy your final breakfast in your Welsh mountain home before packing your bags ready for check out at 10:00.

After an incredible three days conquering Snowdonia’s 14 Peaks together, it’ll be (socially distanced) bear hugs all round with your new hiking buddies.
