Guides. Our WalkingWomen guides will give you a variety of different walks during the week to suit all levels. You can choose each day.

Walking Grade: A bit of everything ranging from Goat 1 to 3. For those who do want to walk up Snowdon we will have an option for you

Base: The Royal Goat, Beddgelert – we couldn’t resist making this ‘goat’ hotel our base. It is newly refurbished and a family run hotel which we love to support. In the lovely village of Beddgelert in the heart of Snowdonia we felt it was the perfect base. There are plenty of walks from the door and there is a train station where you can hop on the Welsh Mountain Railway to give your legs a rest one day!

Arrive by 15.00 on Thursday afternoon for check in, settle in and so there is a possibility of an early evening walk. Briefing with your guides is at 18.00 followed by dinner. Departure Wednesday after breakfast.

Nearest station Bangor/Gwynedd is approx 20 miles away.

Liverpool John Lennon Airport and Manchester International Airport are a couple of hours away by car. The hotel has a car park for guests.

Price: £1550 per person for a solo occupancy room  :

If you bring a partner/friend and share the price will be £1300 and we will reduce your invoice on booking.

Come and join us on the sunny side of Eyri (Snowdonia). The South side reveals it’s gentle nature, with ancient woodland, and tales of dragons and princes, and the crystal clear tumbling Glaslyn gorge, which flows through Beddgelert, our base at none other than the Goat hotel!

We will incorporate the spectacular Welsh Highland Railway one day, which tunnels its way through the Aberglaslyn gorge, before rolling down the estuary to Porthmadog. Hopefully we might catch a glimpse of the Glaslyn Osprey, which have made their home, under the stewardship of the RSPB.

We will explore lesser know footpaths, around the village, and the magical Nantmor, where the lure of Cnicht, the “Matterhorn” of Wales, may be too much to resist, if weather and will allows!






The itinerary may change depending on the weather and is always at the discretion of your guide. Your guide will confirm your days walk each morning to be sure of the weather conditions. We ask you to trust your guide as they are highly experienced. Sometimes there are options and these will be discussed with you.

Thursday :Arrival at our base The Royal Goat Hotel in the village of Beddgelert 

Your guides  will welcome you at 6pm for a briefing pre dinner with dinner at 7pm at the hotel. We suggest arriving for a 15.00 check in and  to explore or just sit and relax in this gorgeous location.

An example of some of the walks that will be on offer:

The Old Slate Mines 9kms 500metres Ascent/Descent

We will catch the bus to the tiny hamlet of Rhyd Ddu, and set off on the famous path up Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) but very soon after, we avoid the crowds by following the old slate minors track up to Bwlch Cwm Llan, which is on the South Ridge of Yr Wyddfa, and offers incredible views of the horseshoe. At this point, we sneak down the other side into the cwm, to join the famous Watkin path, past the “Gladstone rock” where the Prime Minister William Gladstone addressed a crowd of over 2,000 people in 1892, on justice for Wales. We continue down past tumbling waterfalls, to the wonderful Gwynant café to refresh whilst we wait for our taxi back to Beddgelert.

Nantmoor : 13kms approx 600metres ascent / descent.

Taxi to Croesor. Gentle climb along the Cambrian Way initially. We will either make our way up Cnicht, gentle steady climb, until the final steep section, or head across the wild marsh land of Nantmor, and make our way through woodland to Nant Gwynant, to meet our taxi at Pont Bethania.

Moel Hebog 10km 700metres ascent – a circular walk from the hotel.

Up from the back of the Royal Goat Hotel, steep near the top, dropping down to Bwlch , where we could catch a view of Owain Glyndwr’s cave, and take the path down side of Afon Meilionen , through Beddgelert forest to retrace steps back to the hotel

 Welsh Highland Railway adventure!

We will start on foot making our way up the magnificent Glaslyn Gorge, via “Gelerts Grave”, into the Nantmor woods, then along footpaths and lanes to Hafod y Lyn railway station on the Welsh Highland railway (6kms, narrow, rocky path in places, but we will take our time) we will then flag down our train and enjoy the journey through Osprey country to Porthmadog, where we will have time to explore the small town of Porthmadog before our return journey, through the tunnel alongside our walk, back to Beddgelert.

For those that would like to walk further, we could get off at Hafod y Lyn and walk back on the other side of the pass of Aberglaslyn, another 6kms, missing out the tunnel.

 The birthplace of Dragons : 8kms 150m ascent/descent – a morning walk.

Gentle walk along a lane to the South of the upper Glaslyn, to the start of the trail through ancient woodland, up to the iconic Dinas Emrys fort, the original birthplace of dragons!
