  • What our clients say...

    “It was my first time at Snowdonia so I was a bit apprehensive about what to expect. But it was excellent from the word go… Jo encouraged us from start to finish and I tackled scrambling and other aspects of mountain walking that I never envisioned myself doing. Out of the comfort zone but in a safe, controlled manner. Jo made you feel like you could anything!”
