Bivvying Trip

Bivvying Trips

A lightweight microadventure – sleep high in the mountains of Snowdonia under the stars with experienced guides

£150.00 per person

basic-navigation-course-north-walesThis is a unique microadventure trip, with a half-day guided walk high into the hills and mountains of Snowdonia and then spending the night out under the stars in a waterproof Gore-Tex bivouac sack with a qualified leader and guide.

This is wild camping in its purest form – all you need to find is a flat area as big as you are and roll out your sleeping bag. You can look out up at the stars, feel the breeze on your face and see the landscape change as the sun sets, then rises several hours later. Until you have slept high on a mountain you cannot fully understand what it means – we can show you, safe in the knowledge that you have a qualified mountain leader there with you and complete with first aid kit and other safety items.

We meet in one of the towns and villages of Snowdonia, then head out into the mountains beginning with a half-day guided walk as we find a suitable bivvy site, then watch the sun set and cook our evening meal. After spending a surprisingly comfortable night we get up to watch the dawn over the hills in the east, and then head back down to the valley, taking our time to explore and find the hidden secrets of these ancient mountains.

As well as an experienced guide we will supply stoves, food and bivvy equipment. All you need to bring is your normal hillwalking equipment, a sleeping bag and sleeping mat – and maybe a good book! We will supply a full equipment and preparation list after booking.
