You Mudafaca! It is time to score one more mountain!

Cadair Idris is set in the South of Snowdonia and around one of the most beautiful Welsh conservation sites voted "Walks of a Lifetime Winner" by Trail Magazine readers.

On this trip, you will enjoy a lovely hike via a forest, a tarn and finally, the peak with incredible views over Snowdonia.

At the peak, there is a shelter where we can rest before heading back down.

At night, you will rest safely in a cosy dorm room in a peaceful location with its own lake.

The mountain has steep ascent and descent, so you must have good knees and stamina.
