Toughness Rating:
8.5 out of 10

The mountains of Snowdonia National Park are the highest and most challenging in the UK outside Scotland, and they rise from the green valleys as spectacular granite monsters. But northern Snowdonia is more than dramatic high mountains – the forests, crystal clear rivers, remote lakes, and the cool cafes of Llanberis, Capel Curig and Betws-y-Coed make it a magical place to ride a bike.

On a high-summer 5 hour evening outing we will be riding (and a little bit of hike-a-biking) to the summit of Snowdon at 1085 metres on the famous Llanberis path, and descending via the steep, switchbacked rock and rubble fest that is the Ranger Path. This ride has it all with some fast, flowing singletrack too, and rates amongst the finest wild, adventurous rides in the UK.

On our other two days we will relax the game ever so slightly with more modest, but no less adventurous forays into forests, along lake shores and up and down some of the high ridges of Snowdonia. Much of the riding here is on that gnarly-but-flowy singletrack we all love! We’ll also roll a few miles on the excellent Marin Trail system as part of one of our wild rides.

Note: there is a voluntary “ban” on riding bikes on Snowdon between 10am and 5pm in the summer, hence the evening ride

Your Snowdonia Accommodation

On this Snowdonia mountain biking holiday we will be staying in a private bunkhouse at Plas y Brenin, the National Mountain Sports Centre. The bunkhouse is ideally placed to run most of our rides straight from the door, with a short shuttle to the start of our Snowdon ride. As well as the excellent bar at the Centre, we are also just a short stroll from other good pubs in Capel Curig.

The bunkhouse is smart, heated and comfortable with 2 separate bunkrooms and plenty of hot showers and a chill-out area.

Is it for me?

This is tough big mountain riding where the outstanding rewards of technical descents come with big climbs. You need to be comfortable with some sections of hike-a-bike, with potential exposure to serious mountain weather, and with riding loose, rocky, long descents. So if you are ready with an AM or Enduro bike, a good coat, a good degree of fitness and bags of attitude…..come along to Snowdonia for some awesome big mountain riding on this Snowdonia guided MTB holiday!

Getting there

For reference and as a guide, our base in Capel Curig is 5 hours drive from the M25 and 2 to 3 hours from Birmingham or Manchester.

If you prefer to travel by train we can pick you up and drop you off at Betws y Coed station, about 15 minutes from the bunkhouse, although the train journey might be a little arduous!
