With Snowdonia and the wider North Wales area offering landscapes, culture, produce, heritage and unique attractions unlike anywhere else in the United Kingdom, each and every experience with Knowdonia is fascinating as it is tailored to each individual group. The company will send each group a short interactive questionnaire which helps them understand exactly what the groups likes, dislikes, fitness levels and daily budget are, which will determine a location or speciality experience tailored exactly to the taste and requirements of the group. The maximum number in each group is eight.
Christian Wynne, the founder of Knowdonia
North Wales continues to go from strength to strength with its offering"
Christian who is also the co-founder of the award winning ‘The Rocks at Plas Curig Hostel' continues, "as well as the award winning eateries, producers and ‘adrenaline’ attractions, there are also some fantastic little artisan businesses run by passionate entrepreneurs, each telling their own unique story, which provide that even more authentic experience.” As a result, during lockdown, Christian worked on an idea he really felt the area needed. “Knowdonia is there to join these ‘dots on the page’ where we can showcase the amazing artisans, attractions and of course world renowned landscape and scenery, all wrapped up into an experience.”
The whole ethos of the company is for the experience to be relaxed, immersive and fun. Staying away from the guidebooks and tourist hotspots which allows them to show a side of North Wales that even the seasoned visitor may not have seen. Incentive groups on a tour with Knowdonia will be getting something completely bespoke and unique.
"Living here and running a hostel, you learn of those spots away from the crowds. Only announcing the plans for the day on the day, provides that element of mystery and fun, which is what we could all do with based on the past 15 months or so."
Christian is also setting a target to go fully electric and has already committed to going carbon neutral by offsetting their emissions this year, and will be doing so until the day comes that they are able to switch. There is also a focus on sustainability and education on the fragile environment that is Eryri (Snowdonia). The company are committed on what they can do to improve it and educate its visitors by encouraging a fuller understanding of the entire area is one of the foundations on which the business is built.
Christian is an Official Llysgennad Eryri Ambassador and has recently attained his Mountain Training Lowland Leader qualification, both accolades he feels can only add value to the experience of the visitor to the area.
