The route


The walk will begin in Llanberis at dusk where you will meet your group and mountain leaders. After a friendly welcome chat with the group we will brief you on the evening ahead and ensure you are ready for the challenge. The walk begins at dusk, aiming to summit Snowdon, via the Llanberis Path, just before sunset. The pace is relaxed and we have enough leaders so you don’t feel pressured to walk at the fastest pace. After enjoying a spectacular sunset from the summit we switch on our head torches and begin the descent in the dark back down the Llanberis Path.


Snowdon is generally a very busy mountain, often with long queues at the summit, but on the moonlight walk we will have the mountain to ourselves. This is a rare opportunity to experience Snowdon when it is quiet and enjoy some of the most beautiful views across Snowdonia.

    What can i say…from start to finish everthing was brilliantly organised. Very well informed of everything that was going to happen. And the guides did a fantastic job of pushing us to reach the top of Snowdon. If your thinking of booking a walk through these people then go for it. Just brilliant.
