Are you ready for a more rugged challenge? How about scaling one of the UK’s highest mountains in the dark?

Join our Sunrise Trek up Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) as our experienced guides lead you on a trek through the night, reaching the summit in time for sunrise.  This challenge will be a mental and physical test, but we can promise the reward for completing it, whilst raising money to support the families we care for, is worth every step!

What’s included?

The event will be organised by SVL Adventures and led by SVL Adventures Mountain Leaders.

‘Exciting, thrilling, humbling, challenging – all at once! I feel like everything went perfectly’.

Who you’re helping

Staying up all night and then climbing a mountain is a tough ask for anyone – but for many of the families we support, being awake all night is an all too common experience. Children like Imogen have complex medical conditions requiring 24 hour care, and often parents are the only ones able to provide it. That’s why your support is so vital.

‘I am awestruck withy the organisers, the staff guides, but also the people. It’s very inspirational!’

Key information

With your bravery, courage and determination we are hoping to raise £15,000 from the Sunrise Trek Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) challenge to support our work helping children with life-limiting conditions and their families. In order to do this we hope that each of you will commit to raising a minimum of £250. Those reaching this target will be rewarded with a beanie hat and those raising £500+ will receive a cosy hoodie – both valuable items on the kit list!

Finally tick this challenge off your bucket list, whilst raising money for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions. Places are limited, so sign up today!

The event is open to ages 7+. Under 18s need to be accompanied by a parent/guardian. We ask that parents/guardians make a judgment on whether the younger children can cope with the lack of sleep & the energy levels required to complete the trek.

Please note that dogs are unable to join the Snowdon Sunrise Trek.
