The traverse of the Welsh 3000s is a classic link up of the 15 highest peaks in Snowdonia and covers a distance of around 30 miles with over 4000m of ascent. Its certainly no easy challenge but for the active mountain walker its certainly achievable and is classed in many guidebooks as the finest mountain traverse in the UK. Our challenge covers the traverse over two separate days which allows you to really enjoy the experience and see more of the mountains in the daylight. This is a fully guided event and with accommodation and evening meal included in the price.
