Snowdon

Explore Wales’ highest peak of Snowdon via one of the several main walking paths or choose the easier option of the Snowdon Mountain Railway. The Llanberis Path is the longest and easiest route up to the 1085 metre summit and this path follows the route of the railway. You could also take the Miners Track from Pen y Pass or the Pyg Track which also leaves from Pen y Pass. There is also the Snowdon Ranger Path, the Rhydd Track and the Watkin Path which is the most scenic southern route. Once at the top of the mountain, continue along the famous Snowdon Horseshoe ridge walk or relax at the Summit Cafe and Gift Shop. The Llanberis Pass is also a popular rock climbing area and in winter, the area is ideal for ice climbing.

Accommodation for Snowdon can be found in one of the towns at the foot of the mountain including Llanberis and Beddgelert.
