Guided Walk Description

You'll meet your guide at the village of Llanberis at 08.45 for a kit check and finalise plans for the day.

The exact route will depend on the current weather conditions but our preferred route involves taking public transport to Pen y Pass (ticket included) and walking the PYG track from the Pen y Pass car park to the summit. We normally descend via the Llanberis path to finish back at the village of Llanberis.

The PYG track is a route that brings us into the heart of Snowdon. It starts from the Pen y Pass car park and meanders it's way up and through the stunning scenery and mountain slopes that surround Snowdon. Although much of the walk is on a formed path there are also areas of short duration where the use of both your hands and feet are required to move along safely. It rises up to meet the main summit path.

We normally descend the Llanberis path which is slightly longer than the PYG track.It has a couple of steeper slopes but your guide will help you negotiate these.

It closely follows the railway track but it's always better to stay on the recognised footpath. Your guide will point out features relating to history, geology and nature that surround you while you descend back to the village of Llanberis.

The total distance walked during your Snowdon day can be between 7 and 9 miles.

You should be prepared to walk between five and seven hours in mountain terrain but at a steady, manageable pace.

These are open dates where you will be part of a friendly group of other like minded people.

The maximum number of people on our guided walks will be 6. This is part of the additional safety measures introduced by us to reflect the Covid-19 period.

Please contact us for private guiding days.

Guided Walk Reviews

I researched Anelu Aim Higher from Canada and could not have been happier I chose them. Steve was very helpful with the booking and prompt and professional with all email correspondence. On the day we climbed Snowdon Steve was fantastic. He was really helpful and supportive and helped me summit providing poles and managing my pace as my quads burned! I always felt safe in his hands. He is also a very knowledgeable guide who knows local history and geology and it was a great experience. Being guided up Snowdon by an experienced local Welshman who is a great ambassador for both the outdoors and Wales was a fantastic experience. I can give Anelu Aim Higher my strongest recommendation. Thanks Steve for a great day on Snowdon!

Still smiling days after my ascent of Snowdon, largely due to Stephens skilled guidance. He ensured I felt safe on a rainy January morning with gusts of 45 mph and snow at the peak, whilst building my confidence to manage some tricky, but rewarding, terrain. Also, really interesting to learn about the local area and the formation of the Snowdonia mountain range. Wonderful photos and videos sent promptly afterwards, extremely professional and a fun experience which I look forward to repeating with Aim Higher!

1 year on and photos popped up on my fb. What an amazing day we had, cannot recommend Steve enough from transport to helping us get to the summit of Snowdon. I'm afraid of heights but knew I wanted to conquer my fear, Steve helped and encouraged me all the way and keeping a great sense of humour. He makes me want to climb more over and over again. Thankyou for your skills and knowledge. Let's do it again
