This event is a truly breathtaking experience, involving a dark climb to the summit of the highest peak in the South of the UK, under the stars and moonlight.
This event will see us on the summit of Pen y Fan for the sunrise, to take in the glorious and spectacular views painted in a miracle of colours from the sun.
Once you've reached the top and embraced the views and victory, we then descend on a wonderful route down the mountain that will reveal Pen Y Fan's fascinating history as we pass some interesting landmarks.
Situated in the Brecon Beacons National Park, the route has dramatic and beautiful views and is much quieter and more of a challenge than the more common routes up this famous peak.
The trip is fully guided by the brilliant Simon from SVL Adventures, to ensure your safety and enjoyment. Pen y fan is not a technical or difficult hike, so the summit is within reach of any reasonably fit person. The pace is steady and there is time for breaks and photo opportunities. The route is about 7 miles and takes 6 hours in total.
This event is to see the sunrise from the summit on the day of the event. This means we start very early on that specific day. You may need to travel the night before the event so that you arrive at the meeting point in time. The added interest of starting in the dark and walking as the light begins to paint the landscape with its vibrant colours adds to the atmosphere, the adventure, and the experience.
