Join us for our Easter getaway where once arrived there will be no driving - all walks begin and end at Blaenau Ffestiniog :)

Yes, this is a residential par excellence! A camper van based camp (or not - you can go for B&B or tent campsite nearby and not miss out on any of the fun!) with two of the finest walks available in the UK!

  • Two nights of socials
  • Two days of adventures
  • Walking, hiking, trekking!
  • Friends old and new :)

Who would have thought grey old Blaenau Ffestiniog could offer up so much joy, but it can! Andy will guide you to the spot where, as a young lad, he and two others had an epic and nearly didn't make it out alive...

We'll walk through old workings and quarries and even a few underground visits including an amazing incline that underground, gets us from the top to the bottom of the hill!

 

So, you sort your own Blaenau Ffestiniog accommodation and pay for your own food which we'll likely have out in the town. The fee here is for the guiding and organising, so simply two day rates - fifty quid!

Here are videos made of the two walks we'll be undertaking during this wonderful weekend up North...
