School Trips and Activities

Climb Snowdon has been providing inspiring, educational Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) activities and trips for schools since 2012. Over the years, we’ve developed an industry-leading approach to school trips - combining unparalleled local knowledge with rich learning resources, flexible itineraries and the very best leaders.

We’re proud recipients of the LOtC Quality Badge, which is only awarded to organisations meeting stringent risk management and educational provision standards, and licensed by the AALA.

The weather conditions were challenging but the mountain guides were incredibly helpful in ensuring there were as many people as possible who reached the summit.

Heartfelt thanks to yourself, Paul, Alec, Clive and Sonia.

I was worried about the amount of time it would take to come back to Llanberis but the path taken back was so much easier and helpful.

Our staff and pupils have created lifelong memories thanks to your help. We hope there are many more treks to come.

Itineraries tailored to your school’s needs

Our school activities range from single-day events to residential adventures, tailored to suit the precise needs of your group. From our offices at the foot of Yr Wyddfa, we’re perfectly placed to support you in sourcing local accommodation, such as the Llanberis/Pen Y Pass/Snowdon Ranger YHA, and selecting the most appropriate and enjoyable Yr Wyddfa route for your students.

As well as Yr Wyddfa activities, we also run residential trips to Ben Nevis and Scafell Pike with our sister company, RAW Adventures.

The students had a great day and really enjoyed the challenge of the climb. Craig and Anthony had a wonderful manner with the students and a lot was learned in terms of navigation and the environment they were in. Please pass on my thanks again to the two of them. A huge thank you also for your support, attention and excellent level of communication. It was a joy to work with you.

Thank you all very much for your assistance and attention to detail. The students had a great time and staff (although some are a bit stiff!) thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

With grateful thanks once again to you both and your guides.
