This is a tried and tested expedition in North Wales and takes in some fine scenery, the best of the quiet walking routes and includes a night in a bothy and a night wild camping at Andy’s favourite wild campsite in the North.

We’ll meet at Moel Siabod Cafe in Capel Curig where we can leave the vehicles for a small fee.

This trek is an introduction to wild camping and wild country and takes in the best of the lesser visited parts of  the Snowdonia National Park including the Carneddau and the Ogwen Valley.

Some camp kit is available for hire from Andy. It is advisable to purchase your own though but do consult with Andy as he has lots of experience and gives great advice. Backpacking training, camp craft and mountain navigation are all things Andy will be teaching, if wanted, over the course of this long weekend.

We will be walking in North Wales a few days prior or after this expedition so do consider joining us for some additional days on the hill. 

Join Andy for a day long walk or for for five days of wonderful walking in North Wales.

Do search the programme for other great events!
