Snowdonia Forest Walk
Let us take you on a relaxing and enjoyable hike as you explore the deciduous and evergreen woodlands of Snowdonia. Some of the best walks in the National Park are through its forests, along rivers, over bridges, and around lakes. We will take you off the beaten track and away from the crowds as we show you the gems of Snowdonia. These walks are tailormade to your preferences so can be as long or as short as you desire.
Our guides will point out edible plants and enrich your day with lots of interesting facts and information. This will open your eyes as to how the trees in a forest work together and will make your future walks in the woods near you all the more enjoyable.
Forest Walks are perfect for families, small or large groups and to use as an active 'rest' day after climbing Snowdon. The best time of year is during the Autumn when the colours are at their most vibrant and is the best time to forage for fungi. Winter is also a great time to go on a Forest Walk in Snowdonia as the sun penetrates the tree canopy scattering dappled sunlight across the forest floor. The safety in numbers approach of the forest as a whole entity protect individual trees from the worst of the wind and stops them from being blown over by storms. This will work in your favor making for a pleasant walk even on cold and blustery days. To learn more about the forest book a Private Guided Walk by getting in touch via phone or email.
