High on a hill
I’m not a physically-adventurous vegan, but I can’t assume the same of all my readers. In that vein, I am pleased to bring you the following information about the Snowdon Vegan Weekender.
Between Friday 25th and Sunday 27th July, 2014 you can stay in in a hostel, eat lots of vegan food and get active up a mountain. Oh, yeah. You can also help raise money for charity.
The 2nd Sponsored Walk up Snowdon, raising funds for the Vegan Organic Network and Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, is taking place on Saturday 26th July. You can get involved AND make an entire vegan weekend out of the adventure.
The YHA at Pen-y-Pass, which is situated at the foot of Snowdon, is where the walk will start and also happens to be the main accommodation for the weekend. People not staying at the hostel will still be able to join the walk, dine at the hostel for vegan meals and enjoy all the entertainment on offer. Information about the sponsored walk and veganism will be on show in the YHA’s cafe, which will be open to the public during the day and is adopting an all vegan menu for the weekend!
For those making the trek up Snowdon, My Cupcakes bakery are supplying free vegan cakes at the summit.
The Snowdon Vegan Weekender promises to be a unique experience, that’s for certain. Last year’s event saw 70 people on the summit, a world record for the most people eating vegan cake on a mountain. How awesome is that?
Everyone is welcome on the family friendly walk, though you do need to be reasonably fit and know that you can walk the distance, which includes some steep sections. It is after all the biggest mountain in Wales. Non-walkers can catch the Snowdon Mountain Railway train to the summit from Llanberis but tickets need to be booked well in advance.
Full informations about the weekend, the climb and how to book accommodation can be found here.
