Big News! Closed areas of Snowdonia have re-opened, and travel restrictions were lifted on the 6th July.
We are now able to offer all guided rock climbing, mountaineering and mountain walking activities once again.
At the moment we can work with small groups or individuals, from same family groups or social ‘bubbles’.
We have to to manage the 2m distancing, equipment and personal safety, so we are issuing guidelines for all customers. The guidelines relate to travel arrangements, additional items to bring or equipment that need to supply yourself, and what protocols we should observe to minimise risk.
The relaxation of restrictions on travel and access from 6th July allows day trips to Wales, but no overnight stays away from home are permitted until 13th July, when some forms of accommodation will be able to open.
Accommodation should be self contained with no shared spaces such as kitchens or bathrooms, with self-catering providing the best option because many restaurants and bars will remain closed. Campsites, hostels and many hotels will therefore not be open yet. Accommodation is already in high demand especially at weekends, so you may need to travel further to find suitable places to stay.
In Snowdonia National Park, honeypot sites could be busy; parking and road access issues are anticipated, with everyone needing to travel separately to venues. The key will be to be very flexible and creative about venues and route choices, and even last minute changes and cancellations.
We are now delighted to accept bookings so please get in touch and we can discuss plans and dates, and share our ideas on how we anticipate structuring activities whilst also maintaining social distancing, and keeping everyone around us as safe as possible.
