Fantastic opportunity for you to spend 3 days with two experts, a Trueways Survival Instructor and a Trueways Expedition Instructor,. They will both be accompanying you throughout this expedition.
We will be looking to complete the Welsh 3000’s mountaineering expedition in 3 days, 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.
You will learn the skills of survival needed for surviving in a spectacular, demanding setting and have the opportunity to practice the survival skills and techniques throughout the journey, 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.
Some foods will be provided by way of pre-packed expedition foods, however please feel free to bring along any snacks.

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.
The length of this challenge (from first peak to last) is about 26 miles (42 km), but including the walk to and from any start point, this will total some 30 miles (48 km).
