Join the Elite Adventures team for this fantastic opportunity to take a guided walk to the roof of Wales – Snowdon (1085m) A truly unique opportunity to join a like-minded group, get active and savour the wide expansive views across Snowdonia from the highest mountain in Wales.
The Rhyd Ddu path is one of the quietest routes up the mountain and you will see Snowdon from a completely different angle to those taking on the more popular Llanberis, Pyg or Miners tracks. You should expect a full day on the mountain with areas of steep ascent.
WHO IS THIS EVENT FOR?
This event will appeal to everyone from seasoned adventurers to Sunday hikers. The group will be fully guided, getting you safely up to the mountain summit. This is an ideal walk for anyone who would like to summit the highest mountain in Wales and use a more remote path up the mountain. This was does include a short section which is classed as a ridge walk so a reasonable head for heights is required. Our team of mountain leaders will be with you each step of the way and do what we can to minimise any risk to our participants. The walk is aimed at all experience levels however, you will need to be reasonably fit to ensure your own enjoyment and that of the group as the trip will take around 7 hours.
You will be fully guided by qualified mountain leaders.

If you’re fundraising you’ll confirm which charity you’re supporting via a drop down menu. Be careful to pick the correct one. Once your booking is completed your chosen charity will be notified of your participation and will be in touch with you to support you in your fundraising efforts.
CHARITY FUNDRAISING DEADLINES:
All sponsorship goes direct to the Charity via their recommended giving pages. At least 50% of the sponsorship target should be with the Charity by 3 weeks prior to the Challenge. At this time the Charity confirms you are on track to meet the agreed minimum fundraising target. Failure to raise this amount may result in cancellation by your charity. The remaining 50%, and any extra, should be with your Charity by 4 weeks after the Challenge.
The walk will take place in most weathers but the leader will reserve final judgement on the day (in most cases) and maintains the right to abandon any walk if they feel the safety of themselves or any participant is at risk.
Under 18s taking part cannot sign themselves up – they must be signed up by someone over 18.
Once they’ve registered with us, it will take about 5-7 working days to add them onto our registration forms, and you can then sign up to your chosen challenge in aid of them.
Alternatively you can Self Fund your place and fundraise for them independently with no fundraising commitment.
