Our aim is to enable you to experience and enjoy the mountains. Whether that is through a course, break or adventure activity with us, we hope that the enthusiasm, experience and knowledge of our guides and instructors will open up the mountains and surrounding landscape. Mountains can mean many things to people; a sanctuary from city life, a visual feast, a physical challenge, a fulfilling pastime, or somewhere to recharge the batteries. Along with the history, folklore, geology, flora and fauna of an area such as Snowdonia, you have a very special place, which has been drawing visitors since the 18th century and the development of the railways. Many people are happy to wander the beautiful valleys, but if the idea of standing up above on the summits or climbing some of our rock faces appeals, then come and join us, you won't regret it.
