Event itinerary

Day 1: Friday – arrival and preparation

The long-awaited adventure begins in the late afternoon in Llanberis, where the adventurers will be met by the crew for a full safety briefing. Charity Challenge can arrange collection from Bangor to the hotel for anyone arriving by public transport. Please note that this evening’s meal is NOT included in the price.

Day 2: Saturday – The challenge (approximately 10.5 miles of off-road cycling, 9 miles trekking and 2.5miles kayaking)

After an early start and a hearty breakfast we head to Llanberis, where the cycling part of our journey begins. With Snowdon’s rugged peak behind us, we cycle along the shore of Llyn Padam (Llanberis Lake) passing the slate quarries of the Snowdonia National Park towards Llyn Cwellyn.

Lying between the Snowdon Massif and Mynydd Mawr (Big Mountain), this is where we swap bikes for boots and begin the ascent of Snowdon itself. Though it starts with a gentle climb on the Snowdon Ranger path, the walking soon gets trickier as we are faced by a steep slope as we join the Llanberis Path up to the summit.

Snowdon and its surrounding peaks have been described as true examples of alpine typography and from our elevated viewpoint you can take in the surrounding lakes and cwms and, weather permitting, some of the most extensive views in the British Isles. On a clear day you can see four kingdoms, 24 counties, 29 lakes and 17 islands!

Descending a long, gradual slope, we will need to dig deep for the adventure’s climax – a 2.5 mile kayak across Llyn Padam. Nestling in Snowdon’s ever-present shadow, the lake lies amongst the beautiful landscapes of the Llanberis Pass and provides a fitting end to this awe-inspiring journey. After some obligatory photos and team celebrations, the group will be transferred back to the hotel from where we depart.
