Holiday and caravan parks in Snowdonia are a great choice if you’re looking for somewhere to both relax and enjoy the events that the local area has to offer. The region is known for its variety of adventurous activities, and is much loved by walkers and mountain climbers from all over.
It’s because of this that a new event, The Snowdonia Challenge will be taking place in North Wales this summer. Although it’s quite a few months away at the moment, the sign ups have just opened for those wanting to take on the challenge.
So what exactly is the Snowdonia Challenge? It takes place over 3 days, in which the participants aim to complete 100km across the scenic yet tough Snowdonia Mountains and forests. The journey will start in the village of Betws-y-Coed on the 30th of June, and the rest of the track will be marked, guided and marshalled the whole way – so there’s no worry of losing the path!
Each day marks a new challenge, as each days route is a circular. At the end of the day, you’ll return to Betws-y-Coed to rest up before facing a different challenge.
15% of every entry fee is going towards community and charitable cases within the Snowdonia National Park and you can choose to fundraise for your own charity if you feel like you’re up for the challenge.
It’s £100 to enter for the full three days, or £75 for two days and £40 for one.
The Snowdonia National Park is home to a number of mountain ranges, including Snowdon, the tallest mountain in Wales. Each year, thousands of visitors flock to these Welsh mountains to enjoy the superb views that the peaks offer.
You don’t have to be a super keen mountain climber to enjoy and experience the spectacular views of the Snowdonia National Park. There are plenty of leisurely walking routes which are great for taking a picnic along to during the warmer months.
