Exploring Mount Snowdon & the National Park

Year of Adventure- Exploring Mount Snowdon and the National Park

This month, spend a day exploring the beautiful scenery of Snowdonia National Park. Situated in north west Wales, there are over 150 attractions available to visitors. A highlight of the park is Mount Snowdon, the tallest mountain in Wales and England standing at 3,560ft. Choose from six different routes to climb the summit, or jump aboard the Snowdon Mountain Railway for a more relaxed journey. Once at the peak, you can enjoy stunning views of Snowdonia, Anglesey, Pembrokeshire and even Ireland.

As well as the mountain, Snowdonia is home to inland lakes with a range of watersport activities including canoeing, kayaking, windsurfing and whitewater rafting. Bala Lake, also known as Llyn Tegid, is the largest natural body of water in Wales and plays host to many watersport enthusiasts. The lake is also renowned for fishing but whatever you fancy, Snowdonia has it all so be sure to prepare for an action-packed day.

Where to stay

Just outside of Snowdonia National Park is Tyddyn Llan, a picturesque country house with a relaxed, friendly feel. Run by couple Bryan and Susan Webb, this restaurant with rooms is a peaceful place to relax after a busy day.
