Cader Idris - a giant among mountains

Llyn Cau, Cader Idris

Cader Idris is, arguably, the best mountain in Mid Wales. It is rugged and challenging, has numerous routes of ascent, contains glacial corries, tarns and cliffs. Situated close to the coast, there are superb views west to Cardigan Bay. It is one of our personally most climbed mountains, so we certainly love old Cader. Allow us to guide you up and explain the glaciation that created "the chair of the giant, Idris". Situated in southern Meirionydd, Cader lies within the Snowdonia National Park. We know many shorter, easier walks in the area, such as the oustanding Mawddach Trail. We'll make sure you have the very best of walks while in this stunning area of Meirionydd.
