What to Expect

Exploring Snowdon (Yr Wyddfa) is a must for any mountain biking enthusiast! As the highest peak south of the Scottish Highlands, reaching its summit brings an incredible sense of achievement. The descent down the Rangers Path is challenging yet exhilarating, offering a thrilling ride.

The ‘Dawn Patrol’ adventure is named for our early start time of 6 am, necessary due to the riding ban between 10 am and 5 pm from May to September. As we tackle the steep, rocky climb, we awaken both mind and body, soaking in stunning 360-degree views from the summit if weather allows.

The descent down the Rangers Path is a true highlight, filled with rocky challenges and adrenaline-pumping fun. We return to Llanberis via the famous ‘Telegraph Pass’ descent, where a well-deserved brunch awaits at one of the town’s charming cafes. In case of adverse weather, our experienced guides will adjust the route or schedule, ensuring a fantastic experience for all.

The ‘Snowdon Classic’ operates outside the ban dates with a later 9 am start. This allows for more flexibility in scheduling during September, October, and the Winter and early Spring months. 

Location

The adventure commences in Llanberis, the perfect base for exploring Snowdonia National Park’s rugged terrain. From here, you’ll venture on your epic journey up Snowdon, the highest peak south of the Scottish Highlands.
