Event Description

The Snowdon Moonlight Walk is an evening not to be missed. Climb Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales, at dusk and enjoy a breathtaking sunset from the summit (if the weather allows). We then turn our head-torches on and walk down in the dark! This is an opportunity to enjoy Snowdon at its quietest and see Snowdonia like never before.

The walk will be relaxed and friendly. Your group will reach the summit just before sunset, and if the weather is on our side, witness a truly amazing view as you watch the sunset from the highest summit in Wales. This really is a truly unforgettable experience.

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.

When is it?

There are several dates between April and September. You can view the dates below or on the booking calendar above.

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.

  • What our clients say...

    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 our clients say...

    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.
