26-27th April 2019 (night climb)  Snowdon SunRaise 2019

We are really excited to be returning to Snowdon in April 2019. The first Snowdon SunRaise sold out super quick and was an amazing experience for everyone involved. Here are some of the comments we received:

“…a sunrise delivered on Angel wings, one of the most spiritual, miraculous and uplifting experiences ever .. I will remember it and all of you, all of my days”

“It was a privilege to be part of such a spiritual and emotional adventure, the angels did us proud with such an amazing sunrise.”

“Wow! What an achievement! so proud to be part of your special journey with such inspirational people.”

“Woweeee. Amazing… I’m still blown away by the whole experience xx”

The cost is £40 pp and you are requested to raise a minimum of £100 pp sponsorship (we have sponsor forms, or if using a giving page, please use Virgin Money Giving).

We will be booking return coach travel from Glossop for £23 per person, more details will be sent once you’ve booked on the Event with Breese.

Leaving Llanberis at 2am with head torches, we will head along the Llanberis Path to ascend Snowdon (or Yr Wyddfa to use its Welsh name) in the moonlight, reaching the summit in time to see the sunrise from one of the most beautiful destinations on earth. We will return along the same path in the first light of dawn, reaching Llanberis just in time for breakfast.
