About Walls of SnowdoniaLearn the art of dry-stone walling.
Spend a few days with our experienced rangers to learn the basics of the ancient craft of dry stone walling. These walls have been a feature of the Snowdonia landscape for hundreds of years and hopefully, the wall you will help to build on this holiday should last for many years to come.
Enjoy the awe-inspiring surroundings of central Snowdonia, steeped in myth and legend, as you are taken step-by-step through the craft, learning from experienced teachers. With mountains all around, you’ll need to be relatively fit and used to walking on rugged terrain to get the most from this holiday.
