Snowdon at Sunrise

22 June 2024 - 23 June 2024

Are you looking for a unique physical challenge? The Charlie and Carter Snowdon at Sunrise Trek could be just the thing for you!

With our fully trained mountain guides, we are going to take you up Snowdon in the dark so you can see the sunrise as you climb!

Snowdon Facts

Distance: 9 miles - 14.5Km (there & back)

Ascent: 3,199 feet - 975 metres

Time: About 6 hours (there & back)

Grade: Medium

Snowdon is the highest mountain in Wales and England. Its Welsh name, Yr Wyddfa, means tomb or monument. Legend has it that it is the tomb of the ogre Rhita Gawr, who supposedly met his end when King Arthur climbed to the top of Snowdon and killed him. Snowdon is a part of a close-knit family of jagged peaks and offers views across Snowdonia, Anglesey, Pembrokeshire, and Ireland. The whole area has been mined for copper since the Bronze Age, and you will find the ruins of old mine buildings and tramways across the whole mountain.

If you are moderately fit, climbing Snowdon is definitely within your reach. Although Snowdon is one of the highest mountains in the UK and the tallest mountain in Wales, it is probably the friendliest for the novice walker to ascend.

Registration is just £50 per person and we ask that you try to raise £150 in sponsorship to support The Charlie and Carter Foundation.

What is Included
Highly experienced mountain leaders (fully qualified and first aid trained)
Safety equipment (carried by your Mountain Leaders)
£5m Public Liability Insurance
£5m Professional Indemnity Insurance
