The Glorious Glyderau

One Of The Iconic Walks Of Snowdonia

The Glyderau is a mountain range in North Snowdonia. The word Glyder is thought to have come from the Welsh word "Cludair" which basically means "heap of stones". This, as it happens, is a very apt description of the landscapes on the tops.

On this walk, we will take on Glyder Fach and Glyder Fawr, two of the 14 peaks that make up the Welsh 3000s. Walking on this martian like landscape you will see some amazing views of the National Park and take the opportunity to have you photo on the famous Cantilever Stone. 70 tonnes of volcanic rock which defies gravity.

Starting and finishing in the Ogwen Valley, (exact meeting place will be emailed upon booking) we will walk up to Cwm Tryfan, then follow the Miners Path up to the summit of Glyder Fach. Then onto Glyder Fawr and down Twll Ddu (Devils Kitchen). Then its a nice walk along the shoreline of Llyn Idwal, where you might find a few surprises ;)
