The mountains around the hostel are steep and challenging but ultimately worth it! You can reduce the difficulty by not doing the walk (of course)!

Come and explore the glorious Ogwen Valley in Snowdonia just before Autumn turns to Winter!  Hiding nestled between the Carneddau and Glyderau ranges, besides the UK's favourite mountain, Tryfan.

We will be staying two nights in the Ogwen Valley, at the YHA's longest standing hostel. 

The main activity will be a mountain hike either on the Carneddau range or up the Glyders or Tryfan.  This will depend on the group's ability and the weather on the day.  Depending on the range of other leaders available, there may be additional easier/more technical events on offer.  Equally, if you want a quieter weekend you can take yourself to nearby Bethesda, Betws-y-Coed Bangor, Anglesey or Caernarfon.

For those who don't want a quick get away on Sunday, my current plan is a short walk around the waterfalls of Betws-y-Coed.

As usual there is shared buffet on Friday evening.  Please bring something to share, ideally enough for around two people.  We love home-made and creative contributions!  Breakfast is provided both mornings (toast, cereals, fruit and yoghurt) and dinner on Saturday evening.

Most beds are bunk beds and bedding is provided.  Some rooms are en-suite.

Sorry - this event is not suitable for dogs.
