Welcome to the oldest hostel in Wales in the stunning Ogwen Valley. This is the perfect place to explore the mountains of northern Snowdonia - we literally hit the footpaths right from the door. Tryfan, The Gldyers, Devil's Kitchen, The Carneddau; it's a proper roll-call of some of the biggest rocky attractions in the national park.

Our weekend here is dedicated to full-on mountain days, giving you the chance to get the most from this amazing landscape and push your own limits. You will encounter steep and uneven rocky paths, precipitous rocky steps, some high degrees of mountain exposure and potential discomfort if the weather is not kind to us. Your reward will be to conquer some of the finest, most beautiful mountains in the UK.

And when we've done all that during the day, there will be the chance to do it in the dark all over again in the evening, because we'll be leading a 2 hour night navigation walk, providing the chance to feel the full majesty of the mountains with none of the distractions of the daylight.

Later, back in the hostel, to mark the fact it is Valentines Day, we have developed a potentially award-winning party game; it could be a hoot.

There may be an extra leader willing to offer a low-level walk, but that's not really the point of coming to this location at this time of year, so don't bank on it. If you're really stuck for things to do, there is plenty to see by car - we're ideally placed for checking out the villages, castles and attractions of northern Snowdonia.

On the Sunday there will the option to do a another (shorter) walk, making the most of our weekend in this jawdroppingly divine place.

Dogs: Please note this event is not suitable for dogs.
