Wild camping at Andy’s favourite wild campsite in the North plus the splendours of the Carneddau
Our tour takes you on a three-day adventure through the stunning landscape of North Wales, starting from Capel Curig and winding through the beautiful Carneddau range. This tour is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts who want to experience the true wilderness of North Wales without compromising on safety.
Day 1: Capel Curig to Dylan Bothy
We begin our tour at Capel Curig, a picturesque village located in the heart of Snowdonia National Park. After meeting our guide and getting to know the rest of the group, we will start our hike towards Dylan Bothy, our first campsite for the tour. The hike takes us through a scenic route, with stunning views of the surrounding mountains and valleys.
Dylan Bothy is a basic shelter located in a remote area of the Carneddau range, providing a rustic camping experience with no electricity or running water. Our guide will help you set up your tents and get settled in. We will spend the evening stargazing and sharing stories before retiring to our tents for the night.
Day 2: Dylan Bothy to Bethesda
After breakfast we will break camp and start our hike towards Bethesda. This is a challenging hike that takes us through rugged terrain and steep inclines, but the stunning scenery is worth the effort. Along the way, we will stop for lunch and take in the breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains and valleys.
Our campsite for the second night is located near Bethesda, a village nestled in the foothills of the Carneddau range. Here, we will set up camp in some remote woodland and we will spend the evening around a small campfire.
Day 3: Bethesda to Capel Curig via Ogwen Valley
On our final day, we will hike back to Capel Curig via the stunning Ogwen Valley. This is a relatively easy hike that takes us through picturesque landscapes and alongside crystal clear streams. We will stop for lunch at a scenic spot before continuing our hike towards Capel Curig.
The tour ends back at our starting point in Capel Curig, where we will bid farewell to our guide and the rest of the group. This three-day adventure is an unforgettable experience that showcases the natural beauty of the Carneddau range and the Welsh countryside.
