Snowdon at Night

Snowdon at Night

Take on this exciting challenge for LNAA! Trek under a blanket of stars (or mist!) to the summit of Snowdon through the night, reaching the summit in time to watch the sunrise.


About this Challenge

We meet in the Llanberis mountain railway car park at the designated time for a full safety briefing. Each group will have at least 2 guides (1 front, 1 back) to lead you up the track in what will be relative darkness, to begin with. As you progress, the twilight will begin to surface and it will get light well before the sun is due to break the horizon. We will reach the summit area in good time for you to relax and enjoy the sunrise. We return to Llanberis for a hearty full Welsh breakfast (you will have earned it).


There are two funding options:

Charity Sponsorship

You pay £30 deposit directly to our challenge partner Travel & Trek Limited. You then commit to fundraising a minimum of £250 for Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance, to be reached 4 weeks before departure. You will receive a free Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance T-shirt and snood ready for your challenge.


With the self-funded option, you cover the whole cost of the trip yourself (£90 – this is made up of £30 deposit, then the remaining £60 balance to be paid directly to our challenge partner Travel & Trek Limited 4 weeks before departure). You then have the option to fundraise as much as you can for Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance, if you choose this option you will receive a free T-shirt, and if you reach £150 we will send you a free snood too!


You will meet in the town of Llanberris on Sunday 17th July 2022 at 12.55am, beginning your trek at 1.10am. The sun will rise over Snowdon as you reach the summit, around 5.11am. You will then return to Llanberis for a hearty full Welsh breakfast (included in your costs).
