In May 2018, 5 volunteers packed their rucksacks and took on “Adventurous Ewe Snowdon Challenge” to raise money for charity.
After an overnight stay and a hearty breakfast in the town of Llanberis the team set out, starting their adventure with a 17km cycle along the quiet Welsh country roads passing through the Snowdonia’s slate quarry’s. After a tough cycle the team stopped to collect their lunch, swap their bikes for boots and started the 7km assent of Snowdon via the Ranger Path, occasionally stopping to enjoy the view as they made it to the summit for a well-deserved lunch. Heading back down Snowdon after lunch, those undertaking the challenge went onto the final part – a 4km canoe across Llyn Padarn lake to the finish line.
The adventure allowed the group to see Snowdonia National Park in a complete new perspective such as seeing the sunset and sunrise through the mountain ranges. It was a week thoroughly enjoyed by all the volunteers and a once in a lifetime experience.
