Welcome to Wales, my name is Gemma and I was born in the wild, raw mountains of Snowdonia. This is my home and I love to explore all the hidden Welsh gems. I am trained in Mountain Leading, Climbing Wall Instructing and certified in Ride Leadership (British Cycling) and Outdoor First Aid. I have hiked all over the UK, Switzerland, Iceland, France, Germany, Italy and Canada during the Summer and Winter Months. There is no app for this type of experience. A walk in nature and the smell of the mountain air will renew your soul. The great outdoors is a great passion of mine, let’s ground your spirit deep into the earth. I believe the great outdoors brings back balance to our modern lifestyle. I am your local Welsh expert. I will recommend the best places to eat, top adventures and places to stay.

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.
Please ensure you are fully equipped for the outdoors. Check the weather on the day (snowdonia.live / metoffice) and bring extra layers (e.g. hat, gloves, neck warmer) and waterproofs. Please wear appropriate hiking shoes and make sure your day pack is packed full of energising snacks and drinks.
