Snowdon Sunrise Challenge
Date: onwards MAY
A night walk to Snowdon’s summit for sunrise
See the sunrise in the east over Snowdonia from the summit of Snowdon itself.
You’ll meet up in the Llanberis mountain railway car park at a designated time for a full safety briefing.
Each group will have at least two guides (one front and one back)* to lead you up the track in what will be relative darkness to begin with (less the head torches). As you progress, the twilight will begin to surface, and it will get light well before the sun is due to break the horizon.
You will reach the summit area in good time for you to relax and enjoy the sunrise.
After all of your hard work, you will return to Llanberis for a hearty full Welsh breakfast (you will have earned it)!

Arctic Wilderness Expedition
Date: 24 onwards MAR
Opportunity of a lifetime
Heated teepee tents. Perfect for wilderness expeditions
Making tracks through this glorious open winter countryside.
Making use of the shelters that dotted around this area.
Leisurely paced artic adventure
Introducing the Arctic Wilderness Expedition, tailor-made for beginners. No prior cross-country skiing or winter camping experience is needed, making this adventure exceptionally rare with its small group size (four–six participants).
Embark on a remarkable five-day arctic wilderness ski expedition, venturing off the beaten path deep into east Lapland, approximately 200 km inside the Arctic Circle. Experience the thrill of wild camping, spending nights in cozy heated teepee tents. Gather firewood from the pristine forest to create open fires, essential for heating food and boiling water. This expedition is perfectly suited for novices, as there’s no pressure to reach fixed campsites or cover specific distances.
In true self-sufficiency fashion, each member of the group will pull a sled (pulk) loaded with approximately 30 kg of supplies and equipment throughout the expedition, ensuring self-reliance. Please note that there are no Husky support dogs on this journey. Snowmobile support is available in an emergency. As the tracks often lead through deep snow, expect a leisurely pace more akin to a shuffle than a specific skiing technique. A reasonable level of fitness is recommended to fully enjoy this adventure.
Options to suit you
Self-fund prices start at £1,900. Travel and Trek offer a variety of sponsor options so you can choose what suits you best.
If the dates advertised don’t suit you then you can negotiate alternative dates directly with Travel and Trek.
