Other Guided Walks in Snowdonia

There are hundreds of ways to link together the various footpaths, valleys and mountain summits of Snowdonia and the rest of North Wales. Of course mountains like Snowdon, Cadair Idris and Tryfan receive a lot of the attention and are the most common requests we have for guided walks in snowdonia and North Wales - but there is a lot to explore elsewhere.

 

If you get in touch and ask us about quiet walks in Snowdonia, exciting walks in Snowdonia or just ways to link together the different mountain ranges then we can help. To get you started, here are a few guided walking routes that we think really are worth looking at:

 

  • Moel Siabod from Capel Curig
  • Cnicht from Croesor
  • Rhinog Fach and Rhinog Fawr
  • Cadair Berwyn from Pistyll Rhaedr

 

Moel Siabod from Capel Curig

 

Moel Siabod is a bit of a hidden treasure and very much a 'local's mountain'. The best way to the summit is arguably via the easy scramble of Ddaer Ddu ridge, but a walker's route can be found via the forests behind Plas y Brenin.

 

Cnicht from Croesor

 

Cnicht is small but worthy of the nickname "the Welsh Matterhorn". It rises steeply from a broad ridge, accessed by the mining and quarry village of Croesor, with summit views across the Glaslyn estuary and to the Lleyn Peninsula.

 

Rhinog Fach and Rhinog Fawr

 

The Rhinogs sit in a relatively isolated pocket between the coast and Coed y Brenin, and with narrow roads and remote car parks greeting the few visitors that arrive. Tough navigation and rocky terrain make these coastal mountains feel like they should be on the Scottish west coast.

 

Cadair Berwyn from Pistyll Rhaedr

 

The Berwyns sit outside the Snowdonia National Park - but that is no reason to overlook them. They have a sense of wildness that you wouldn't expect being so close to the border with the relatively crowded English counties. There is a lot to exploire here, but our favourite route is via the waterfall of Pistyll Rhaedr.
