About the Area
Snowdonia National Park
Well known as one of the most beautiful landscapes in the UK, the Snowdonia National Park has it all. The towering mountains drop straight down to sandy estuaries, peaceful woodlands and valleys with endless walking trails, taking you past ancient history and traditional ways of life. As a well-known destination for walkers and mountaineers, Snowdonia is also a popular retreat for people wanting to reconnect with nature and escape the hectic modern world. As such you’ll find artists and dreamers living happily alongside sheep farmers and slate miners, and whether your inspiration is the sea or the mountains, you’ll find something there for you.
You’re welcome to arrive at the guesthouse from 5pm, where your Large Outdoors host will be there to meet you and introduce you to your fellow walking companions. From then you can grab a cup of tea and begin to settle down.
This evening we have a relaxing yoga session to get you ready for the weekend and dispel any stresses you still have from the working week. Please note this first Yoga session begins at 6:30pm so you will need to be there in time. Our first feast is then served at 8pm, and you’ll soon find yourself transported away in this peaceful place, with mountain views everywhere you look.
Before breakfast join in with this morning’s optional Yoga (starts at 7am), designed to prepare you for today’s adventures. These sessions are open to all levels, with beginners welcome.
After breakfast we head out to explore the area on foot. We’ll be out walking for the day, but the difficulty of the walk very much depends on what the group wants to do – with the main aim being to stay low-level and enjoy exploring the valleys, woodlands, coast and small hills.
The whole group will be on the same walk, but here are some options your leader will be considering:
Saturday afternoon onwards
Once back at the guesthouse, we have a great evening planned for you. Alongside our evening dinner, there will be another restorative yoga session (optional) to ease your muscles after the day in the outdoors.
Before breakfast there will be our final Yoga session of the weekend (starts at 7am) leaving you energised and ready for the final days activities.
For today we will either head out for another gentle and relaxing walk in some of the hidden and quieter parts of the stunning Snowdonia National Park. Or in the *warmer months there will be the option (at additional cost) to spend the morning and early afternoon doing watersports at the stunningly beautiful Llyn Padarn. You’ll have the choice to take part in stand-up paddle-boarding or kayaking as we provide you with all the equipment and teach you all you need to know before heading off to explore the lake – beginners are welcome.
There’ll be a final chance to enjoy a meal together as we pop to a local cafe for lunch (not included). Before returning to the lakeshore and the end of what will have been a truly transformative weekend.
We’ll be staying in Dol Peris in Llanberis, the village that lies right at the foot of Snowdon. The guesthouse has a selection of shared, twin, double and single rooms; it has excellent views and a comfy lounge.
Please note you will need to bring your own yoga mat.
For this weekend we provide the following meals: evening meals on Friday and Saturday, breakfasts, and packed lunches for Saturday and Sunday. Please note that all food will be vegetarian.
As well as meals, we also provide a variety of complimentary soft drinks and beverages – tea & coffee which includes herbal, fruit and decaffeinated options and fruit squashes. We do not supply alcohol but you are welcome to bring your own.
Please note you will need to bring your own Yoga Mat.
This is offered on a single sex shared room basis. The venue also has a limited number of twin, single and double rooms. All bedding is provided but you will need to bring your own towel.
Please note we are unable to accept dogs on this weekend, with the exception of registered guided dogs which are welcome on all of our trips.

What our members have to say...
I love the concept of the Large Outdoors weekends and I like to have at least one or two booked for the future, to have something to look forward to. A weekend trip finds me visiting some fabulous parts of the country: Northumberland, Dorset, Brecon Beacons, Lake District, North York Moors... hills, mountains, moors and coast - all well covered by the amazing choice of locations to pick from, with decent (or lovely!) accommodation, great food and qualified walk leaders. They're also very good value.Sue LangfordMember since 2008
I have been joining Large Outdoors on their outdoor adventures for many years now. I wasn’t always an active person and as a self-confessed city dweller I never thought I would appreciate so much of what is on offer when you leave the suburbs behind you. Large Outdoors has not only made me appreciate what natural beauty is on our door step, it has also given me the confidence to challenge myself and see things differently.Shad EverettMember since 2009
