Cornwall Activity Weekend - FAQ's

Do I need experience?

Yes – whilst this activity weekend is great for people of all skills and abilities it is a challenge and is only suitable for those with some experience. You will need to feel comfortable cycling for 16km, walking up a mountain and then canoeing (see fitness below for more details).

Who will be leading the group

We employ experienced and fully qualified Mountain and Cycle Leaders to accompany and lead you. They are First Aid trained and have extensive experience in leading in the mountains. They will be ultimately responsible for your safety during the challenge. They will be carrying full safety equipment and mountain first aid kits with them.

What level of fitness do I need?

Training and a good level of fitness is definitely required. As much preparation and training you put in beforehand the better chance of success you have.

A general overall fitness is a good start. The ideal training for the Snowdon Challenge is getting out there and actually training on your bike or in the hills walking. However, if you do not have the luxury of living in the hills or time to go out, then the stairs at home (or an office block of flats with lots of stairs) are a great place to start training.

Remember to use the walking boots that you will be walking in after the first month of training to get them worn in. If you have never cycled before, this ride is still achievable with the correct ride preparation.

Start at least 3 months ahead of the ride with some short distances at weekends and whenever you can during the week. 5-10miles is not a great distance and will help your bottom and legs get used to it all.

How can I get there?

Most people drive but you could get the train and bus. Follow the link below for details of how to get to Llanberis (your start point).

Can I book solo?

Yes!

If you are joining a scheduled date then this escape is perfect for those who are joining on their own. During the first nights briefing and stay you will be with others so will have plenty of time to get to know everyone in the group. As you take part in the challenge you’ll quickly get to know, support and be supported by your fellow escapers.

PLEASE NOTE: There is a single room supplement of £25.00

Can groups book?

Yes – depending on the size of your group. We minimum size of groups to 8 people and a maximum of 40. This activity weekend is perfect for stags, hens, groups of friend, business groups – basically groups of all shapes and sizes.

If you would like to book a private trip then please get in touch via the enquiry form above (07802 503 387 or email) and we’d be happy to book you onto any available weekend.

Can I tailor this activity weekend?

No. This escape has been expertly crafted to allow you to get the best out of the experiences offered.

What shall I pack?

Lets start with the most important item: footwear
The choice of walking footwear is incredibly important and should not be decided on price alone. The terrain is uneven and can be very rough so it is vital that you use a pair of strong canvas or leather boots with good ankle support, not trekking trainers, for your challenge. Not only the boots but the socks that you wear are also very important and it is worth investing in some good pairs of socks that do not blister. Wearing your boots and socks during your training period on and off the hills will inform you of whether they are suitable for the challenge. Trainers are ideal for cycling.

Apart from that please pack the following:
Dry shoes (to wear when not adventuring)
Waterproof jacket
Warm clothes
Cool clothes (shorts?!)
Swimming stuff & towel
Change of clothes
Torch
Water bottle (1 litre)
Daysack/small rucksack
Sunscream (waterproof is best)

What about the weather?

The mountain weather in the U.K. can be very changeable, it can be Glorious sunshine down at the base but be wet and windy on the summit. It is not uncommon for it to change from clear blues skies to rain and fog in moments. It is important to follow the advice we give and carry the correct kit (please see kit list)

What happens if I fall ill, can’t keep up or there is an emergency?

The Mountain leaders well trained and experienced and managing situations on the hill should they need to get outside assistance for example ‘mountain rescue’ they all carry mobile phones and also radios for communication with the minibus drivers.
The Mountain Leader will always keep the group together for maximum safety on each peak and set a sensible pace for all to achieve this challenge. However if your struggling you must be honest with yourself and the leader remember the top of the mountain is only halfway!
The timing of breaks is quite liberal and there will be scheduled breaks for 5minutes, the exact times and places of your breaks will very much depend on the weather and the well-being of your group. When ascending and descending in order to maintain a healthy and steady pace.

What food and drinks are included?

At lunch time you will stop and have a light yet energy filled picnic. Breakfast will be at the hotel. Water and snacks will be provided throughout. Please let us know prior to departure if you have any specific dietary requirements or allergies.
General Wellbeing
Here are a few tips to remember while trekking.
• Hydration is important. Drink plenty of water
• Eat plenty to keep energy
• Trekking poles are a great way to support the knees and provide stability.
• Honesty, if you feeling unwell at any point please let someone know, we want to make sure everyone remains fit and healthy whilst trekking.

Can I wear glasses/contacts during the adventure?

Absolutely, although we recommend taking along a strap/piece of string to secure them to you.

What do you do to protect the environment?

We limit the impact we have on the surrounding environment by remaining on the paths at all times so as not to cause further erosion on the mountain. We will ensure that all rubbish is disposed of responsibly and take all rubbish away with us.
