Snowdonia is the UK's perfect setting for exploring scenic routes and stunning views.

A weekend of sightseeing, walking and socialising

We’ll be staying in the beautiful setting of Capel Curig at Glan Dwr Mountain Lodge but will also branch out to surrounding areas, such as Betws-y-Coed, the gateway to Snowdonia and its neighbouring towns and villages. This magical setting has a distinctly Alpine feel, enhanced by Gwydyr Forest.

This trip is ideal for those who wish to travel independently, with the added support of a friendly group of like-minded people and a dedicated tour leader. We think experiences are better shared, and this is certainly one you won’t forget!

What's included?

Enjoy a weekend exploring Snowdonia's untamed wilderness

On Friday evening, we’ll get together with a glass of bubbly, giving everyone a chance to get to know each other. We’ll have dinner at around 8pm at the local pub (it’s the perfect chance to sample the local ale).

On Saturday, we’ll leave our cars and set off for a lovely 9-mile walk, allowing us to soak up the beauty that lies right on our doorstep. If you don’t fancy taking part in the walk, this is the ideal opportunity to explore Betws-y-Coed at your own leisure.

We’ll get to see Swallow Falls, a beautiful waterfall on the Afon Llugwy that has become a familiar natural celebrity over the past 100 years. There is also an option to visit Bodnant Garden, one of the most magical gardens in the UK, covering 80 acres looking across the valley towards the Snowdonia range.

For those who enjoy visiting historic sites, Conwy castle is a gritty, dark stoned fortress that has the rare ability to evoke an authentic medieval atmosphere.

In the evening, we will eat at a lovely local restaurant and catch up on the day’s events.

On Sunday, we’ll take a 5-mile circular walk around lake Idwal and enjoy the spectacular sights of the Glyderau and Carneddau mountain ranges.

A good night’s kip is really important when you’re travelling, and so is the location. We choose the accommodation to suit the trip, making sure you have a clean, comfortable and well-located place to stay.
Most of our travellers sign-up solo and so we’re all in the same boat … or plane for that matter. Our traveller groups are small, informal and welcoming. While we’re not a singles travel company, 90% of our groups are made up of solo travellers. You’ll have the opportunity to meet your team before we set-off – we run an ice-breaker on Zoom and you’ll also be invited into a WhatsApp group so you can get to know the group before we go. 
We like to keep our group-size small so travellers can get to know each other on the trip. Usually, there are around 5-10 travellers on each trip between the ages of 30-50.
Yes, you can. Around 10% of our group are made up of couples or friends who enjoy socialising and meeting new people. 
Of course! Everything we plan on the itinerary is optional. If you fancy coming along to everything, you’re more than welcome. If you want to dip out any point to relax or do your own thing, that’s completely fine too. 

It’s important for all travellers to arrange their own travel insurance before we set-off. If you need help with travel insurance, give Steve a call and he will advise. 

To secure your place on the trip, we’ll ask for a deposit, which can be made by bank transfer. The final payment for the trip will be due two-weeks before we leave. You’ll find more payment information on each event page.
Payment for your trip can be made online on this website, by bank transfer or you can make payment over the phone by calling Steve Sutherland on: 07845 529 538.

Cancellation requests are only accepted by email. For further information on our cancellation policy, read our full terms and conditions.

Contact Steve ( or 07845 529 538) any time and he’ll answer your questions.

Questions About This Get-Away

Hi, I’m Steve, After spending five years travelling the world, and over a decade organising trips across the UK and Europe, I found the biggest fear around travel was going alone. Booking a group tour with people you don’t know can also feel daunting and so that’s why at Solo Breaks, we organise small group trips so everyone can get to know each other and form life-long friendships. As your host, I’ll be there on every trip to take care of the travel logistics, answer any of your questions, and most importantly, make sure you have an unforgettable experience! If you have any questions about this trip, please get in touch: Click here to connect over WhatsApp or phone me on 07845529538. Thanks Steve
