Snowdonia Guides was founded in 2006 to create a 'one stop shop' for the established brands of tyred out, Ultimate High & the lodge.
Bringing the 3 brands together has created a single point of contact for clients, as well as allowing us more time to do what we do best - delivering high quality activity breaks!
tyred out provides guided mountain biking breaks, inclusive of bikes, helmets & outer shell clothing.
Based in Penmachno, close to Betws y Coed, we are ideally located for access to the main mountain biking centres of North wales.
Develop your mountain biking skills with one of our experienced guides.
Ultimate High offers mountain-based activities in Snowdonia.
Fully-guided walking, climbing & mountaineering packages allow clients to experience some of the most dramatic scenery in Wales.
Have the opportunity to summit the high peaks via less well-known routes, and develop the skills required for moving safely in the mountains.
Snowdonia Guides also provides formal instruction in mountaineeering & climbing.
