Event Description

The Snowdon Moonlight Walk is a must-do adventure for anyone seeking an unforgettable experience. Ascend Wales’ highest mountain, Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon), at sunset for a unique challenge. Enjoy a breathtaking sunset view from the summit, and then descend the mountain in peaceful darkness using head-torches to light your way, taking in stunning views of Eryri.

Join us for the unforgettable Snowdon Moonlight Walk, an evening you won’t want to miss. Take on the challenge of climbing Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon), the highest mountain in Wales, at dusk and witness a breathtaking sunset from the summit – weather permitting, of course! As darkness descends, we’ll switch on our head-torches and carefully make our way down the mountain, giving you the chance to experience Eryri (Snowdonia) like never before.

Our walk is designed to be relaxed and friendly, ensuring that everyone feels comfortable throughout the journey. As a group, we’ll reach the summit just before sunset, and with a bit of luck, we’ll witness a truly magical view as we watch the sun dip below the horizon from the highest summit in Wales.

This is a truly unique and unforgettable experience that will leave you with memories to cherish for a lifetime. Don’t miss your chance to join us on this incredible adventure.

Enjoy Snowdon at its very best!

Snowdon is generally a very busy mountain, often with long queues at the summit, but on the Snowdon Moonlight Walk we will have the mountain to ourselves. This is a rare opportunity to experience Snowdon when it is quiet and enjoy some of the most beautiful views across Snowdonia on our most popular Snowdonia Guided Walk.

Where does it start?

The Snowdon Moonlight walks start and finish in Llanberis which is in the Snowdonia National Park, North Wales. We recommend staying in Llanberis or the surrounding villages if you staying before or after the walk. The Snowdon Moonlight Walk begins early evening, aiming to summit Snowdon, via the Llanberis Path, just before sunset.

Is it for me?

You will require a good level of fitness to climb Snowdon. The walk takes on average 7-hours with a total distance of just under 10-miles and 970m of ascent.

    Excellent organisation and information pre walk and good support, knowledge and humour during the walk. Guides even stopped to help someone struggling (from another group) in the conditions to ensure they were ok and mountain rescue were on way. Would definitely recommend and look forward to booking future adventures!

    What can i say…from start to finish everthing was brilliantly organised. Very well informed of everything that was going to happen. And the guides did a fantastic job of pushing us to reach the top of Snowdon. If your thinking of booking a walk through these people then go for it. Just brilliant.
