Getting There



Snowdonia National Park mountains

Make your way to the hotel for the 18:00 briefing. This is a great opportunity to meet your guides, team mates, and hear a bit more about the plan for your adventure. Don't worry if you're not going to make it - just let us know and we'll make sure you're briefed up next morning.

Post brief you'll be free to chill the beans ahead of tomorrows big challenge or trundle into town for a wee explore.

Dinner can be ordered in the hotel or there are plenty of eating places within walking distance.


Ain't no backin' out now!

We'll kick things off with a decent breakfast to fuel up for the day then it's off to start this epic challenge.

First up is the 19km cycle leaving the sea at Caernarfon to head forthe shores of Llyn Padarn (Llanberis Lake), passing the famous slate mines, rural Welsh farms, and the best scenery this wild country has to offer.

Cycing along the shores of Llyn Padarn, we'll catch our first exciting glimpse of Snowdon looming in the distance.

Once reaching the Snowdon Ranger Path it's time for a quick changeover off the bike and into your trekking get up, picking up your packed lunch. You and the gang will then pace it up to the summit having earned an unbeatable view (let's hope it's not raining!) from the highest point in Wales and England. On a clear day you can see four kingdoms, 24 counties, 29 lakes and 17 islands!

The Ranger Path is a lot quieter than some of the other routes up and passes beautiful lakes before climbing a ridgeline to the summit. There'll be time for victory photos and a breather before we descend the Llanberis path into Llanberis itself.

High on adrenaline, it's time for the grand finale - a paddle circuit of the glacial lake of Llyn Padarn - one of the largest natural lakes in Wales.

The final 2.5 mile kayak forms the final push. Emerging from the waters like Poseidon, glory is yours. Challenge completed! Now it's time for a celebratory tipple and lots of questioning to try to find out who's idea this crazy challenge was in the first place.

You'll most likely be pretty pooped after all that so it's a good idea to take a bit of a break before driving.


What Adventurers are Saying

Did the Snowdon challenge, absolutely loved it. Guides were amazing as was the equipment and itinerary. Will be doing more in future. 12 hours of activity and a decent hotel room... Great value!

Our group of 14 was a mix of experienced hikers and those who had never thought they could get up Snowdon. We did the Snowdon Challenge. The whole weekend was amazing. From the briefing on the Friday night to the finish on Saturday evening. The guides were brilliant and supported everyone to make it up the mountain. They never made anyone feel they were too slow or should perhaps give up. The whole team delivered a fantastic experience for everyone. Several members of our group had profoundly meanful experiences because they were able to get to the top of Snowdon with the help of the team. Packed lunch, bikes, helmets, kayaks, oars, you name it, it was provided. People who have never done an outdoor activity have said they cannot wait for the next one. Thank you to the whole team, it was brilliant.

The organisation was superb from start to finish and no stone was left unturned by the fabulous team. Special thanks to the team for giving the 10 of us some amazing lifelong memories.

Our Snowdon Triple Challenge was a pleasure from start to finish. They made it very easy for me. I had help with setting up my fundraising pages, to finding the right hotels and to advice on the actual event itself. The communication was brilliant. During the event itself the brief was excellent and the Guide was knowledgeable, friendly and got us all through the challenge. The whole experience was fantastic and one I would definitely recommend.

I'm not very fit and have never done anything like this before. Will I be able to do the Snowdon Sea to Summit Challenge?

Most likely yes. Whilst this is a good challenge, it's mostly 'normal' people (not triathletes or the like) who join on this. And all but a handful manage to complete the full circuit each year. We're not saying that to add any pressure but to let you know that it's very likely you'll do it. It's not about setting any records here. We'll be on hand to offer support every step of the way.

There's a support vehicle for the cycle so you can always hop in that if you're really struggling. If the Snowdon climb is proving too tough you can just go back down. And as for the paddle there's always the option to just pull over to the side...or let your partner take over. Whatever happens you'll be fine. Don't let fear of a lack of fitness stop you. Better to have to tried and failed and all that. If you really want to get round you will.

How far will I be cycling, hiking and paddling?

Bike - approx 10 miles/ 16km - 723 feet/ 220m ascent & 591 feet/ 180m descent

Hike - approx 10 miles/ 16km - 3,100 feet/ 945m ascent & 3,478 feet/ 1060m descent

Kayak - approx 2.5 miles/ 4km

How hard is it to climb Mount Snowdon?

Snowdon's summit is 1,085 meters tall and there are loads of routes up to top. We take the Snowdon Ranger Path because it's quieter than some of the alternatives. It's also non-technical and fairly steady all the way up. Hundred of thousands of people summit Snowdon every year so if you're determined to make it you have an excellent chance of doing so.

Can I book on alone?

Most definitely. More than half of those on our adventures book on solo. Lots of people will be in the same boat and you'll soon all be pals.

Is there a minimum age for this trip?

Yes, all our trips are for people of 18 years of age and older.

Is the Snowdon Sea to Summit Challenge safe?

In a word, yes. Obviously all outdoor activities carry some degree of risk but it's very low on this one. We've carried out extensive risk assessments and have a highly training team of experienced Mountain Leaders supervising and ready to help out if needed. You'll get full safety briefings.

What is the weather like in Snowdon National Park?

The last thing you want when doing a challenge like this is for it to be baking hot. Fortunately, summer temperatures stay pleasant at around 18-20 degrees on average.

Temperatures cool as altitude increases though so you can expect it to be between 3 and 10 degrees colder on the summit.

Can I book an extra night in the hotel?

Of course. It's subject to availability but otherwise you're free to stay as long as you like. Why not extend your trip and explore Zip World, Adventure Parc Snowdonia or one of the nearby castles?

Can I have my own room?

Yep, so long as there's availability. There'll be a supplement which will be confirmed on enquiry.

Where can I leave my stuff when I'm on the Snowdon Sea to Summit Challenge?

You can leave anything you don't need back at the hotel.

Is this a good option for fund raising for charity?

This is a great option. All the planning, logistics, and safety are taken care of for you and we've got loads of experience in running these for charity fund raisers


What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
