    Another fantastic walk with Snowdon Walks. The group was lovely, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable guide, great pace, and incredible scenery in a place I would never have dared go alone. Just an all-round brilliant day! Totally recommend.

    The two day scrambling weekend was without a doubt the best activity weekend of my life. As a fairly experienced hill walker I’d always assumed those big craggy rock faces were way beyond my limit but with some expert guidance and friendly encouragement I achieved more than I expected to be able to – I’ll be coming back to tackle some more scrambles and I can’t wait to give Tryfan’s North Ridge another go as soon as I can!
