Fantastic opportunity for you to spend 3 days with an expert Trueways Expedition Instructor to complete the Welsh 3000’s mountaineering expedition, walking from the top of Snowdon over the Glyderau, Carneddau and finishing close to the North Wales coast on the final peak Foel Fras above the spectacular Aber Falls.

With two nights wild camping in tents in the spectacular Welsh Mountains.
The views are truly stunning.

3 Days will give you time to fully experience the variety of terrain from knife edge ridges to rolling summits and the full grandeur of the complex landscape as well as bagging 14 peaks across the beautiful Welsh landscapes. Taking the opportunity to spot wildlife along the way, the route involves some rock scrambling.

You will leave these magical Welsh mountains with a real sense of achievement having completed such an expedition, and with memories and skills that will last forever.

About the 14 Peaks
14 of the highest mountains in Wales that have a height of 3,000 feet (914.4 m) or more. Geographically they fall within three ranges, all sufficiently close to make it possible to reach all 14 summits within 24 hours, a journey known as the Welsh 3000s challenge.

It's only by coming on such a course does one realize how ill prepared one is for surviving in the outdoors

The instructor was great - sharing practical skills & knowledge in an inclusive manner; giving us all the chance to practice our newly acquired skills ; I excelled at knots & fire starting

I thoroughly enjoyed the course Andy and Amo were great and their experience showed. October 2020 was tough but a great time even when wet!!
I will take a lot away from this especially the psychological side. Mentally it is as tough as the physical but I can say I'll be back! I cannot recommend this course enough - if you want to be challenged and your willing to push yourself.
It teaches that giving up and giving in is not a option!

Our second year under Andy’s guidance and what a great adventure we had!
Absolutely fantastic time with my eight year old son and a small group of like minded dads and kids.
It was challenging for the kids and the assessments were hard but Andy helped them through and was keen engaging and above all patient!
Thanks to Trueways and particularly Andy for looking after us so well in these difficult times.

Kid's Woodland Survival Course ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

My survival enthusiastic 9 year old throughly enjoyed 2 days on Cannock Chase. All of the children responded well to excellent tuition from Andy who struck up a quick rapore. Excellent venue which is of interest from a historical perspective and made the night time treasure hunt a brilliant experience. Adults will learn things too and will stand your children in good stead if they go on to do DofE. Thanks for a great weekend.
