Most 1 week tours offer walks on 5 days during the week, departing at 9:30AM and spending about 5-7 hours walking, including stops. Wednesday is a free day, allowing you to do what you want, or to rest. The walks are categorized from short to long or from low to high level terrain, so there is something to suit every taste on each departure. The length of each days' walks depends on the level chosen, but can range from 2-12 miles or more. Our most popular British guided walking holidays offer you a choice of up to three lengths of walks each day, we call them Classic Walking Holidays. An easier walk and harder walk and one in between, perfect for those holidaying together with different walking tastes. You can walk with one party level one day, and switch to another the next - it's entirely up to you.You don't have to stick to the same level throughout the week. You need not walk every day, if you don't want to.

This land of shimmering lakes and magnificent peaks is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which offers many challenging paths as you scale the tough but beautiful Snowdonia. Our experienced guides are very knowledgeable and will make sure you get to see the best of Snowdonia, no matter your walking level.
