We are conscious that much of the social time on our weekend events involves drinking alcohol to a greater or lesser extent. Obviously it is never obligatory: some choose to do so and others don't. Now and again drinking alcohol becomes the focus of an event (intentionally or otherwise), and for some people that is not desirable. Therefore, having listened to feedback from our members, and ever mindful of our aim to improve the physical and mental wellbeing of our members, this hostel event will be ALCOHOL FREE.

The Carneddau is a range of mountains on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park and is the largest contiguous areas of high ground in Wales and England. Rowen YHA is nestled on the hillside beneath these peaks and this weekend is a great opportunity to experience a typical hostel event with OutdoorLads and to explore this stunning area during Autumn. 

On the Friday night we have a buffet dinner, settle into the hostel and get to know our fellow OutdoorLads.   

On Saturday there will be at least one local walk/activity on offer. This could include a mountainous walk  into the wilderness on our doorstep. Alternatively, there are gentler options such as Tal Y Fan Mountain, which is accessible to any mountain bikers who may wish to come to event. The event leader will publish more details closer to the day.

On Sunday we will pack up, clean the hostel and then, after breakfast, head out for another short walk or  activity.  There are a number of local attractions to visit including Conwy Castle, Conwy Water Gardens or even some surfing at the nearby Surf Snowdonia.

There are four places for dogs at this hostel, at an additional charge of £30 per dog for the weekend, allocated on a first come-first served basis (three dogs have now been booked, with one place remaining.) Please make enquiries with the office on support@outdoorlads.com if you wish to bring a dog. All dogs must be kept out of the kitchens, and out of the dining rooms when people are eating. There will be dog-specific bedrooms allocated, so you won't have to share with a dog if you don't wish to. UPDATE: All four dog spaces on this event have now been taken.
