Solstice Twin Peaks: Snowdon & Ben Nevis June 20th-21st Celebrate the summer solstice by conquering stunning Snowdon at sunrise & mighty Ben Nevis at sunset in one superb outing. On this unique trip you'll climb a combined elevation of 2,100 meters & travel by luxury minbus between the peaks, with comfortable hotel accommodation in Fort William included. Snowdon, or 'Yr Wyddfa' as she's known in Welsh, lies within Snowdonia National Park while Ben Nevis is the highest of the Lochaber hills within the Grampian Range and stands proudly as the highest peak in the UK at 1,345m. We'll ascend and descend Snowdon via the relatively gentle gradient of the Llanberis path and we'll ascend and descend Ben Nevis via the Mountain Track.

Financial protection We comply fully with the Package Travel Regulations and hold Financial Failure Insurance – so your money is fully protected. This policy will also include repatriation if required, arising from the cancellation or curtailment of your travel arrangements due to the insolvency of Inspire Alpine®. This insurance has been arranged by Towergate Travel through Zurich Insurance PLC. Weather Regardless of the time of year, we may experience cloud, rain, wind, sun and even snow. The temperatures will be much cooler higher on the mountain tops, so having layers that you can add to and take off will work. We will of course adjust walking plans to take into consideration any adverse conditions, otherwise we go out in ‘most’ weather conditions, hence having waterproof and warm kit will help us carry on with our plans. Your Mountain Leaders are experience and qualified to make appropriate decisions about group safety. They will carry necessary group and safety equipment and are certified in Outdoor Emergency First Aid. How To Book The booking process is as follows: 1. Choose your ticket type below.
