Guiding In Wales
Update 30th September
Our part of Wales is open, and so are we! All rock climbing, mountaineering, scrambling and mountain walking activities are still on offer.
Some areas of Wales are in local lockdown but at the time of writing we are still able to continue with our activities as Gwynedd is still unrestricted.
We are observing Covid guidelines and wearing masks where appropriate, keeping 2m distancing and cleaning equipment after every use or different client group. There are a very large number of visitors coming to the area, mostly to Snowdon itself’ so we are seeking quieter corners of the park where possible
For the coming winter season, there are many uncertainties that will possibly affect how we are able to operate.
The two main issues are travel restrictions because of Covid and working regulations in EU countries because of the looming no-deal Brexit.
Currently it is possible to travel to Italy and Sweden without having to quarantine on arrival or return, so those options are looking the most attractive at the moment.
We are keen to offer early season skiing in Italy, and Sweden offers great skiing and boarding , in particular in the north, near the resort of Riksgränsen, which would be a good venue for later touring trips.
The hope is that Norway restrictions will lift by spring, so at the moment trips to Senja, Lofoten and Lyngen are on the table for late March and April .
We are taking reservations (without deposits) for the winter weeks as normal, but remaining flexible regarding itineraries and venues at this stage.
This is easier to do if you have a private group , or even the makings of a group (eg 2-3 people coming together) as we may be able to combine small groups.
Please get in touch about any plans , ideas and dates.
