Join one our Guided Snowdon walks and take away the stress of navigation. Your guide will choose the most appropriate route and will provide a safe, enjoyable and informative day in the mountains.
Snowdon is located in Snowdonia National Park in North Wales. It is the highest mountain south of the Scottish Highlands and stands at 1085m or 3560ft above sea level. It is the base of an ancient volcano and has been sculpted by glaciers into the impressive pyramidal peak you see today. On a clear day there are amazing views and every country in the UK can be seen.
Gradient Adventure will provide a full guiding service to help you reach the summit of Snowdon whether summer or winter. We only use local and knowledgeable qualified mountain leaders and mountain instructors. All guides carry full safety equipment to deal with any unforeseen circumstances. We can cater for individuals and groups alike and have organised charity events for up to 150 people.
Although popular, an ascent should not be underestimated. As with any mountain, conditions can change rapidly, temperatures can drop below -10 and winds can be in excess of 100mph. It can be a real challenge, Sir Edmond Hilary even used it to train for the 1953 ascent of Everest!
