Discover the high Carneddau


The northern part of Snowdonia is home to the Carneddau mountains. The range includes the largest continuous area of land above 2500ft south of Scotland and is home to several of Snowdonia’s highest peaks. The impression given from the busy A5 is that of a large upland of featureless, grassy, domed summits but this belies the Carneddau’s true character; one of hidden lakes, wild valleys, airy ridges and towering crags. On this walk, we’ll experience the very best of the magnificent Carneddau – and we’ll take in three of Snowdonia’s 3000ft+ summits while we’re at it: Pen yr Ole Wen, Carnedd Dafydd and Carnedd Llewelyn.


A route of approx. 9miles/15km with 3300ft/1000m of ascent through rugged terrain, over uneven paths and rocky mountain tops. Some sections of simple scrambling where hands will be required to negotiate short sections of rocky terrain. Good level of fitness required. Walk duration approx. 6-8 hours.
