Unique activities hosted by local experts vetted for quality

  • Off the beaten track in Snowdonia
    We start by meeting near the local cafe to get to know each other and have a look at where we will go on the run. Setting off from there we will head out on our route. We'll go at a pace that you are comfortable with. Along the way I will let you know about the local history of where we are, we can talk about the plant life and the wildlife that lives here. I plan to make the experience easy going and to that end I welcome any questions you have be that "What mountain is that?" or "Where should I go for dinner tonight?" This isn't a race or an elite training session, it is designed around you individually. We will stay together every step of the way and ensure that we get the most out of the time! Some experience of running will be beneficial, being able to run 5km on roads would be ideal. Other things to note The terrain we will be running on is rough but not to worry as we will take the rougher areas slower to be safe. Don't hesitate to get in touch with any questions you may have!

Then we'll drive together a short distance to the parking area, where we'll get you kitted up with a Harness, Helmet, and climbing Shoes. Then we'll walk to the crag (climbing cliff), this could be anywhere between 5-30 minutes depending on which climb(s) we're aiming to do. The Climbs will be carefully tailored to suit your aims, ability, experience, the weather, and your desires. We'll aim to learn as we climb, instead of standing around for 1/2 the day talking about it, we'll get climbing and I'll teach you the skills as we progress. You can expect to come away having learned lots of new skills regardless of your previous experience, and having had a good day out with lots of climbing done.

  • SAORI freestyle weaving for everyone
    SAORImôr is one of only 5 registered SAORI studios in the UK and the only one in Wales. I offer this very special opportunity to do this unique craft in one of the most stunning areas of the UK. As a Japanese based craft this activity also offers a link between the mountains and sea of North Wales and the mountains and sea of Japan and a peep into Japanese culture and practice. Weaving is an important part of our Welsh heritage so by taking a short weaving class at SAORImôr you can learn more about how traditional Welsh blankets were made. A SAORI class is easy and fun. The looms are set up and ready for you to weave. Simply choose your colour and texture from the rainbow colour wall, sit at the loom and begin. No rules, no mistakes, just joy! You take your unique piece of weaving home with you. Other things to note I have complied with all recommendations for protection against Covid-19. The studio is wheelchair accessible (unfortunately not the toilet) and I have accessible equipment to enable people of all abilities to weave.

  • Summit Snowdon with a local guide
    You'll be guided to the summit of Wyddfa (Snowdon), the highest mountain in Wales and the 19th highest in the British Isles, by a genuine local. Throughout the hike I will be there to support and encourage you as we travel at a steady pace to the summit. We'll meet in the village of Llanberis at 08:45, catch the shuttle bus to Pen-y-Pass from where we'll hike up to the summit of Wyddfa (Snowdon) via the old Miner's track, once at the summit you'll be able to rest and enjoy the views. We'll then hike down from the summit to the village of Llanberis, aiming to get back around 3pm. The hike to the summit isn't one that I would class as hard but you'll definitely know that you've climbed a mountain and you'll sleep well when you go to bed that evening. I'd encourage guests to book early and remind guests that they can cancel 7 days before the experience and receive a full refund. Also, if the weather is very bad on the day of the experience I will cancel and you'll receive a full refund. Other things to note - I want guests to be able to relax and enjoy their day and let me do all the organising but I do need guests to arrive with the correct clothing and footwear as we will be in a mountain environment.

  • CWM Penmachno miners walk.
    Drive through CWM Penmachno, pass the quarry to the end, meeting point on the left, oppersite chapel. Come in wellies. The reviews capture the experience, please read below as written by people's experience: Imagine driving over a single lane mountain track to a tiny hamlet, hiking up to mine shaft hidden in a forest. The host then unlocks the rusting bars & you walk in a dark tunnel dug 160 years ago, as fresh water streams out, taking you with head torches deep under the Welsh mountains & into abandoned caverns & waterfalls. It's magic, Alice can unlock. Hearty, wet, exciting & magical. We really enjoyed this experience. It’s a fair trek to the mine but a beautiful one through the woodlands walking up a stream... uphill! The views were amazing!! The mine itself was great and very wet. There’s one part where you climb up a waterfall/steep stream! This was lots of fun but quite challenging and exhausting. Once out the mine, there’s another steep uphill walk. Alice is lovely, very chatty! She isn’t a fountain of knowledge on the mine like her husband, but clearly very experienced walking this route! It took nearly 3 hours as no rushing, no issues waiting for group, we looked around an abandoned village. No phone network here.Highly recommend this trip, very good value for money. Other things to note Wellies and water proof coat needed. Bring snacks and water.

Your guide to Llanberis

Welcome to Llanberis

With its lakeside location at the foot of Snowdon, Wales’ tallest mountain, Llanberis has one of the most spectacular settings in Wales. That’s even before you spot the magnificent medieval ruins of Dolbadarn Castle, built by one of the last Princes of Wales and captured by many Romantic artists, or take one of the two narrow-gauge rail lines that putter gently from here. One goes around the northern bank of the sparkling Lake Padarn, while the other travels 4.7 miles to the summit of Snowdon itself.

An unsurprisingly popular spot with hill walkers, rock climbers, mountain bikers, and pony trekkers, the town is full of bustling outdoor shops, but also lovely cafes in brightly painted buildings. Llanberis’ surrounding countryside is full of other lively sites, too, including the Vivian Dive Centre for budding scuba divers and the National Slate Museum, with its gorgeous courtyard and clock tower in the shadow of a quarry.

How do I get around Llanberis?

The nearest train station to Llanberis on the North Wales Coast Line is Bangor, a 15-minute journey by car or taxi, or 50 minutes by local bus (take the 85 or 86). From Bangor, trains go west to Holyhead (30 mins) for sea transport to Ireland, or east to Chester or Crewe, where you can change for Manchester Airport (MAN), South Wales, and London. You can also take a direct train from here to Birmingham International (BHX) if you aren’t in a hurry: services run approximately every two hours, and take 3.5 hours. The nearest airport by road is Liverpool John Airport (LPL), around 1.5 hours away. Once in Llanberis, the great network of Sherpa buses will take you around Snowdonia, while the local bike hire shop has full-suspension mountain and road models, as well as children’s bikes and trailers.

When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Llanberis?

Llanberis is said to have less rainfall than other parts of Wales, perhaps on account of it being protected by the mountains. Nevertheless, always come here with your waterproofs, umbrella, and stout walking shoes: you never know when the weather might turn. Summers often bring glorious, warm days, perfect for lakeside walks and gentler hikes but also big events like the Slateman Triathlon, where competitors swim, cycle, and run in one of the world’s best locations. If you’re a committed outdoor type keen to avoid crowds, or you fancy less sun on your neck when you’re battling uphill, spring or autumn are still great times to travel. Be aware of weather conditions on the peaks if you come here in winter, or instead just enjoy the distant snowy sights of Wales’ greatest summits.

What are the top things to do in Llanberis?

Wild swimming in the lakes

You don’t just have to get an old train around Lake Padarn. You can swim in it too. Lagoons on the edges of this gorgeous expanse of water are popular in the summer: the lake is quieter in its middle. Newcomers to open-water swimming can enrol in supported swimming groups who stay close to the shore, and canoes and kayaks can be hired for more splashy fun.

Ascending Snowdon

There are seven well-known routes up Wales’ highest peak, with the popular Llanberis Path being the “easiest.” Be prepared, though: it’s also one of the longest (9 miles). The Snowdon Ranger Path is more direct, if you can cope with the steep section in its middle, while the others involve rougher paths and scrambles. If you fancy an easier ride, the Snowdon Mountain Railway is there for a reason.

Padarn Country Park

If the highest mountain in Wales isn’t enough, enjoy one of the most gorgeous, varied country parks in Britain. Here you’ll find picturesque woodlands and wildlife, a diving and watersports centre, and unusual historic buildings such as the eerie Quarry Hospital.
