When: Saturday 27th April 2024

Where: Llanberis, Snowdonia, Wales

On the day

Seeing the sunrise across Snowdonia National Park will be a memory never forgotten!

You will be fully supported all the way by experienced Mountain Leaders from Whats Not To Hike and then celebrate at the finish line with a well-deserved breakfast brunch.

We will be ascending during the stillness of the night, and with Snowdon National Park being an International Dark Sky Reserve, we will hopefully be treated to a stunning walk under a blanket of stars. We aim to reach the summit, 1085m, in time for dawn breaking over the magnificent Snowdonia National Park and will stay to admire and soak in the full sunrise.

We will then descend back the same way, being able to see the landscape and national park in a whole new light – quite literally!

Route: The llanberris path is the most gradual of all the paths, with the easiest ascent (930m) and descent. It is likely to take us about 3 hours to get to the summit, and a little less to go back down.

Itinerary: We will meet in Llanberis, near the Snowdon Railway at 1.50am Saturday 27th April and ascend via the Llanberris path to reach the summit in time for Sunrise at 4:50am. 

Please note, although this is a sunrise walk, we cannot guarantee that the weather will enable a picturesque sunrise. Snowdon’s weather is unpredictable and may certainly add to the challenge. We would advise you to stay in the national park on the Saturday night, and travel home on the Sunday to enable you to have one night of full sleep.
