Snowdon by Night

Climb Snowdon - Snowdon by Night

Experience the quiet majesty of Snowdon by moonlight, with a guided sunrise, sunset or dark skies walk.

Snowdonia National Park is one of only 18 International Dark Sky Reserves in the world, offering a rare opportunity to escape light pollution and soak up the magic of a truly dark sky. Our experienced Mountain leaders regularly run Snowdon by Night walks, guiding hikers carefully along paths they know intimately. It’s a powerful experience that will connect you with your fellow walkers, the mountain itself and nature for an unforgettable experience. Take a moment to turn off torches and see if you can spot the milky way!

Night walk ascents and descents are via the well-maintained Llanberis Path, returning to the village of Llanberis with the option of a hearty breakfast. Choose a full moon to experience Snowdon by moonlight, or a new moon for real immersion in rare darkness.

Although you’ll have an expert guide with you, we do recommend night walk participants have some previous hiking experience - you may want to book onto one of our Guided Days before coming along.

The team will recommend starting times depending on the time of year and, while every effort is made to chase the clouds away, sometimes we can’t guarantee views of the stunning sunrises/sunsets that are often photographed! You can, however, be sure of an unforgettable experience and the chance to see Yr Wyddfa in a completely new way.

All three challenges are linear walks starting and finishing in the village of Llanberis. You will be walking for about 9 miles/14.5km and climb a total of 3560 feet/ 975 metres during your walk.

What Our Clients Say

I would like to add that the team at RAW Adventures who guided us up and down and who are regularly on the mountain, I 100% vouch for how fantastic they are at looking after Llanberis and Yr Wyddfa itself – not that we needed to be told to be quiet, but they demanded it.

They push for plastic free Snowdon, and ensure that we respect the region in all aspects. We look forward to visiting, and of course, contributing to Llanberis in the near future.

Clatterbridge Cancer Charity, Sunrise – June 2024
Alder Hey Children’s Charity held its first ever Snowdon by Night event in April 2022 and is now one of the most popular fundraising events in the charity event calendar. Both events have completely sold out with 300 participants taking part in each and the first year raising over £85,000. We are on track for 2023 to exceed the total raised in the previous year.

The team at RAW Adventures have been such a pleasure to work with since day one. Any questions we have about the event they are more than willing to help. The registration process for supporters signing up to the event is all managed by RAW Adventures giving the charity more time to steward supporters through their fundraising journey.

We look forward to working with RAW Adventures for many years to come on our Snowdon by Night event and hopefully many more...
