Key Details

  • Duration:  3 days, 2 nights
  • Meeting Point: Starting from Caffi Siabod, A5, Capel Curig, Betws-y-Coed, LL24 0EL


Day 1: Capel Curig to Dulyn Bothy

Start in the quaint village of Capel Curig, meet your guide, and get acquainted with fellow adventurers. Then set off towards Dulyn Bothy, a rustic mountain shelter, where you’ll get to experience traditional camping—no electricity or running water, just a cosy fire and starlit skies.

Day 2: Dulyn Bothy to Bethesda

The day’s trek towards Bethesda is challenging but rewarding, featuring rugged landscapes and breathtaking views. Once we reach Bethesda, a lovely village with modern camping amenities, you’ll enjoy a hearty meal and a more “civilised” camping experience.

Day 3: Bethesda to Capel Curig via Ogwen Valley

The final leg takes you back to Capel Curig, this time via the scenic Ogwen Valley. Expect enchanting landscapes and tranquil streams before concluding this unforgettable journey at our original starting point.


This tour explores the splendid natural scenery of the Carneddau range, starting and ending in the charming village of Capel Curig. We will also pass through Bethesda, allowing you a taste of local Welsh culture.


No specific prerequisites are needed, but a moderate level of physical fitness will enhance your experience. The second day, in particular, involves challenging terrains and inclines.
