Llanberis is a great base camp for our Mont Blanc & Matterhorn training weekends as it provides an inspiring location to explore the brilliant mountain walking, scrambling and rock climbing in Northern Snowdonia

It’s also a lively mountain village with plenty of accommodation, shops, restaurants, amenities and of course, the famous climbers cafe, Pete’s Eats, where our courses begin!
