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 breath-taking 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. This is a guided walk for those who want to join a small walking group led by one of our experienced Mountain Leaders.


The Snowdon Moonlight Walk


The Snowdon Moonlight Walk begins early evening, aiming to summit Snowdon, via the Llanberis Path, just before sunset. You will meet the group in Llanberis at the foot of Snowdon before heading up the mountain with our experienced mountain leaders.


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 unforgetable experience. It’s now time to head down the mountain in the dark with just the moonlight and your head-torch lighting the way.


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.

  • 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!

    My mother and I had a wonderful evening with Mountain Walks. The weather was perfect and the scenery really spectacular. The walk leadership was of high standard, friendly and very knowledgeable of the area. This was a lovely beautiful walk and I would definitely book with Mountain Walks again.

    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.
