Outdoor Activities: Mountaineering
The mountainous areas of the world have always been a challenge. Wales offers a great range of challenge, did you know that Sir Edmund Hillary and his team trained in Snowdonia for the Himalayas?
Our instructors have years of mountain experience; many have been mountaineering all over the world. We are able to offer you a wide range of multi day, full and half day routes across Wales. We can take you to some of the most challenging locations in Wales. Areas will include the classic routes but also less busy areas, off the beaten track and in areas of outstanding natural beauty.
Alternatively, why not take a mountaineering course with us? It’s a great way to get you started so you can get on with mountaineering yourself. Aspects of the course include: mountain safety, route selection, equipment, and navigation, with an ethos of self reliance and competence to be able to enjoy the mountains.
