Philosophy

About us

The mountains are more than our adventure playgrounds, they’re a backdrop for thought-provoking journeys, facilitators of life-long friendships and a way back to ourselves. The Wildsome is the how, we make it happen, you just turn up with openness and curiosity and leave the rest to us.

Born from a deep connection to the wild Welsh landscapes, our guided mountain adventures are constructed with care and attention to deliver you a full outdoor experience in one weekend. We welcome you to join us, disconnect from busy weeks to return home with clearer heads and fuller hearts.

Fuelling Adventure

We love our food and keep it fresh, organic, seasonal, local and plastic-free when possible. Where it comes from and how it’s produced is extremely important to us so we have connected with local café and cake-making royalty, Mafon of Llanberis, to ensure that your experience will be healthy, hearty and delicious. We make every effort to cater for all dietary requirements, just give us enough notice to cook up a storm!

“Every decision we make about food is a vote for the kind of world we want to live in”

On Connection

We believe in fostering strong connections with nature, each other and ourselves, it’s at the heart of the weekends we create and the way we live our lives. We want you to experience some of this magic too.

Who are we?

We (Emily & Joey) are two pals who met one stormy winter weekend in a North Wales bunkhouse. Emily invited Joey to speak at her community adventure event in London then Joey whisked Emily up to Snowdonia for more mountain time.

Four months later (July 2018), we set about completing the Welsh 3000s together and stomped, ate, laughed and skinny dipped our way around the highest peaks of Snowdonia. 20 hours of excited (and sometimes delirious) conversation later, The Wildsome was born. One year on, we’re here, sharing our love for the mountains with you, exploring together.

What they said…

“I attended the first weekend by The Wildsome in north Snowdonia. And LOVED it! Joey and Em, the masterminds behind it, are a natural team, collaborators and friends, with a shared love of the mountains. And we’re so lucky that they want to share it with us.

The weekend was a perfect mix of just that – wandering and exploring. Filled with scrambling, wild swimming, drinks & warming fires, hiking, navigation skills, scrummy food and scones the size of our faces (they exist, promise!).

Joey & Em created a really friendly, warm and fun space. I turned up knowing one other person but quickly got to know the rest of the group, enjoying being surrounded by fellow outdoor appreciators and supporting each other throughout the weekend.
I’d highly recommend a The Wildsome weekend!”
