Meet your guide on the Snowdon Mountain Railway concourse while it's still dark. Arrive early to check you have everything you need and ask any questions before starting the climb.

Snowdonia: Crib Goch and The Snowdon Horseshoe Hike

3. Snowdonia: Crib Goch and The Snowdon Horseshoe Hike

Challenge yourself to complete the renowned Snowdon Horseshoe route, often described as one of Wales' best ridge walks, in the company of an experienced mountain guide. Start your adventure with an easy climb from Pen-y-Pass along the Pyg Track before veering off to tackle the exposed ridge of Crib Goch. If you're feeling brave, march confidently along the top of the ridge, or alternatively crawl along on all fours. The pinnacles give you a bit of easy vertical scrambling before the easy walk to Snowdon's summit. Afterward, descend to the south to the rough, rocky Y Lliwedd with its amazing views back to Crib Goch. Continue down into Cwm Dyli before joining the Miners' Track back to the start.

What people are saying about North Wales

Fantastic experience in the mist and rain but Simon kept us all upbeat and was superb throughout, Even though it wasn't a particularly nice day we did all achieve something very special together and felt like proper hikers due to the weather conditions. Simon is a great guide and I would certainly recommend Simon if you were thinking of getting a guide.

Thank you so much Simon !! My hike was amazing and maybe I would have given up before but thanks for pushing me. Also the chat about the mountains and your conversations during the hike has Inspired me already. Looking forward to another hike with you some time again in the mountains

our guide was so kind and friendly! was such a good experience! couldn’t recommend more :)
