12 Hours Wild and Solo

SATURDAY, 23 JUNE 2018 – SUNDAY, 24 JUNE 2018


Have you been thinking about solo wild camping? But don’t know what you need to do, or what you need to know? Maybe you have the skills but don’t have the confidence? Or maybe you’ve wanted to do this for a long time but just need an excuse to get out there and actually do it?

If the answer is yes to any of the above….we’ve got you covered! 12 Hours Wild and Solo is about gearing you with the skills, confidence, and excuse needed to spend a night on your own in the wild.

Starting out together with a group of like-minded women, you will spend the day hiking in beautiful Snowdonia. Your experienced mountain leader, Angela, will cover basic navigation and navigation improvement, safety and expedition skills so that you know how to set up camp safely and without interference to the environment.

Before departing ways in the evening to your individual wild camping areas, you will have a chance to discuss and explore the more holistic side of solo wild camping. What is it that really scares you? What benefits are there from being in the wild by yourself? To make the most of the evening, we encourage you to bring something to relax such as a notepad for writing and drawing. We’d also encourage you to have a rare technology break to really make the most of the quiet.

After 12 Hours Wild and Solo, you will re group, reflect and finish with a walk off the mountain back to the start point.
