The Snowdon Horseshoe is an exciting hiking challenge and is often described as one of the best ridge walks in Wales with 'interesting' terrain and amazing views but with grade one scrambles and big drops to contend with it's certainly not for the faint-hearted. The route is made up of a horseshoe shaped ring of ridges and peaks on Snowdon’s eastern side and makes for a great mountain day suitable for most.

Whether you're doing it for charity, with a group of friends, as a family outing or just for your own pleasure MountainXperience can take the hassle out of planning your adventure and keep you safe on the day. We only work with qualified and experienced mountain guides who are fully insured and hold up-to-date first aid certificates.

About This Deal


You'll meet your MountainXperience guide at the Pen-y-Pass car park and have a chat about what the day involves and check you've got everything you need.

The walk starts with an easy climb from Pen y Pass along the Pyg Track before veering off to tackle the exposed ridge of Crib Goch. The bravest will march confidently along the top whilst the more nervous will be on all fours with most people managing a bit of both! The pinnacles give you a bit of easy vertical scrambling before the easy walk to Snowdon's summit. You'll then descend to the south to the rough, rocky Y Lliwedd with its amazing views back to Crib Goch then further down into Cwm Dyli before joining the Miners' Track back to the start.

The route is a little over seven miles (11.4km) and will take around six hours.
