Mountains, forests, valleys and the sea – it has to be Snowdonia!
Even amongst the UK’s treasured national parks, Snowdonia is unique. No other park has such a magical mix of craggy mountains and sandy beaches around it. In a single day you can hike a peak, sunbathe on a beach, and lose yourself in quiet country lanes between the two. And yet, Snowdonia is even more than this…
Explore castles built by Welsh princes and English invaders. Discover hidden churches, forest mines and fascinating heritage. Get the adrenaline pumping with rock climbing or gorge walking. Mountain bikers can test their skills on Snowdonia’s world-famous Marin Trail, or the technical rollercoaster routes of Coed-y-Brenin. Want to be swept off your feet? Then “fly” along Europe’s longest and fastest zip wire, high above a huge slate quarry. Or plunge from a 100ft tree on a pulley the army uses for parachute training. If it’s raining, so what? Don a helmet and adventure underground. Tour Llechwedd Slate or Sygun Copper mines, and listen to incredible stories at King Arthur’s Labyrinth.
Make time to visit the historic towns of Conwy and Caernarfon, and the picturebook mountain villages of Betws-y-Coed and Beddgelert. Enjoy authentic Welsh food at country pubs, rustic cafes or award-winning restaurants. The range of things to do in Snowdonia is equalled by the array of accommodation – from well-equipped hostels and bunkhouses to VisitWales five-star rated B&Bs, cottages, guesthouses and inns.
