Plas y Brenin have amongst there packed calendar Walks both sides of the Christmas Festivities
Big Christmas Walk (13-14 Dec)
Don’t miss our annual Big Christmas Walk.
A sell out event every year this weekend is a chance to mix some scenic guided walking with a little festive cheer. It’s your chance to join us at Plas y Brenin for a little bit of Christmas cheer and plenty of laid back, scenic walking.
Whether you’ve walked in Snowdonia before or you’ve never visited the area this weekend is a great chance for you to get out into the Welsh mountains in good company.
You’ll arrive on Friday evening when you’ll sign up to the following day’s walk choosing from a menu of carefully selected routes. The guided walks on offer will range from ‘nice and gentle’ to ‘highly challenging’, allowing you to decide what level you’d like to walk at and how hard you want to work.
When you come down off the hill on the Saturday you’ll join the other groups to enjoy a glass of mulled wine and freshly baked mince pies as you gaze out at the Snowdon horseshoe from the comfort of our bar. You’ll sit down to a hearty traditional Christmas dinner and possibly even enjoy a drop of our locally brewed real ale. Then, if you’d like to, you’ll have the chance to attend a light hearted evening lecture.
On Sunday morning you’ll head out on another walk, again selecting the appropriate level from the available list. At the end of the day’s walking, you’ll return to Plas y Brenin for freshly baked cakes before leaving us on Sunday evening.
To encourage more walkers to enjoy a hard-earned seasonal break we’ve kept the cost of ‘The Big Christmas Walk’ down to an absolute minimum.
All your meals (including your packed lunch), afternoon tea and cakes, a comfy bed for the night and two day’s guided walking in some of the most stunning mountains the UK has to offer – all for just £160. At that price, it’s a gift.
If you like Plas y Brenin, you’ll simply love ‘The Big Christmas Walk’.
