What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in outdoor activities, hiking, exploring and living life to the fullest. All skill levels are welcome. I started this group to show how accessible hiking can be from Manchester. I'm an experienced/qualified mountain leader and qualified minibus driver allowing me to offer you the cheapest price possible for your adventure.

Not everyone has transport to the mountains, but we do! Simply put... We Pick You Up, Drive You To The Mountains, Guide You Up The Mountains Safely, Have An Amazing Adventure, Drive You Back Home In Time For Tea!

If you are new to all this, I've created this page to help: https://www.bee-adventures.co.uk/welcome (https://www.bee-adventures.co.uk/welcome)

You will meet great people and have lots of laughs! Safety is essential but we never take ourselves too seriously. Come join one of our events and see for yourself. Feel free to message me any questions or concerns you may have and if I'm not up a mountain with no signal I will reply as soon as I'm back down :)

We have added to our list of activities and will now be running hiking, via Ferrata, expeditions and camping.

Please book on our website before you RSVP, then you will defiantly have a seat on the bus.

🐝 Description 🐝

Difficulty - Moderate

Wales’ highest mountain dominates the skyline of North West Wales. Perhaps something is calling you to conquer this 1,085 metre (3,560 feet) peak. Maybe it’s on your bucket list, or you’re doing it for charity. Or you just fancy seeing the views from the top. Whatever the reason you will not be disappointed!

Snowdonia is a wild landscape, with sharp, souring and beautiful peaks rising up high above the valleys. Picturesque and slate scarred villages scatter the region and are excellent bases for exploring or just relaxing and enjoying the views.

Once at the start of the hike, you will be led by trained mountain leaders. We welcome anyone to join us! We have guided all abilities and believe there is no better achievement than stepping out of your comfort zone! We take the high Pyg track up to the summit and the low lakeside Miners track down.
