Adventure overview

Beginner's Gateway to Wilderness Camping: Step into the wild with our expert-led wild camping and hiking adventure in Snowdonia.

Whether you're pitching a tent for the first time or looking to brush up your outdoor skills, this weekend is your chance to dive into the wonderful world of wild camping.

Wake up to a sunrise on a mountain summit, swim in hidden lakes, and learn the essentials of camp craft, all while enveloped in the breathtaking beauty of Wales' finest landscapes.


  • 6 pm Meet Euston Station, London - for train to Snowdonia (return ticket included).
  • Camping - overnight


  • Explore Snowdonia's wilderness, valleys, and mountains.
  • Wild swimming - if you're keen
  • Wild camp under the stars, possibly on a summit for sunrise if weather allows.


  • Hiking - continue exploring off-the-beaten-path locations.
  • Train - back to London, arriving around 9 pm.

On this wild camping trip in Snowdonia, you’ll spend two days and two nights in the lesser travelled parts of the Snowdonia National Park, camping out in the wilderness and hiking its more remote mountains. You’ll have a chance to swim in mountain lakes, watch a sunset and, if the weather allows, even camp on a mountain summit.

This is a fantastic introduction to wild camping, something every adventurer needs to try, but we know it but can be a bit daunting at first. Join us on this weekend in Snowdonia for a fully supported introduction and a chance to share our favourite parts of this magnificent landscape.


Meet at Euston Station, London to catch the 6 pm train to Snowdonia (included in the price).

We'll head out into the wilderness to explore the best this gem has to offer, traversing beautiful valleys, mountains and even a wild swim if you're keen.

  • Don’t focus too much on this though…

Is there a minimum age for this trip?

  • 18 years old

How fit do I need to be?

  • You'll need a moderate level of fitness for this one. Don't worry though, you don't need to be a super hiker. Keep in mind though that you'll be carrying kit for wild camping too (approx 10-12kgs)

Roughly how many miles will we be walking each day?

  • Distances vary and we may need to change the route during the trip, but expect typically a 3km night hike, 14km on day one and 10km on day two.

What size will the group be?

  • Up to 8 guests per group (usually).

How many mountain leaders will be walking with us?

  • One guide per group of 8.

Do I need travel insurance?

  • Yes, check that it covers the trip you’re interested in
  • We also recommend you get some personal insurance to cover you for injury or any personal loss or damage.

Is the guide insured?

  • Yes, our guiding partners are insured for all the activities they offer, but you’ll still need to take out your own travel insurance.


How do sleeping arrangements work if three people book this trip?

  • We’ll provide 1-man tents and can offer 3-man tents for couples or two people – or friendly groups of three.

What should I pack?

  • We’ll send you a full kit list once you’ve booked


Is there a discount for group bookings?

  • Unfortunately not, we offer a competitive and fair price so we can’t offer further discounts.

Is there a discount if I make my own way there or travel from a different starting point?

  • Unfortunately not for this trip.

Can we have a campfire?

  • Unfortunately, campfires aren’t allowed as we like to leave no trace. That doesn’t stop you enjoying a brew under the stars though.
