Overall Rating
Based on 0 reviews - View All



Enjoy a rare opportunity to escape light pollution and soak up the magic of a truly dark sky above the Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park.

Our experienced Mountain leaders regularly run Snowdon night walks, guiding hikers carefully along paths they know intimately. It’s a powerful experience that will connect you with your fellow walkers, the mountain itself and nature in an unforgettable way. Take a moment to turn off torches and see if you can spot the Milky Way!
