About Snowdonia National Park

Snowdonia National Park is named for Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales standing at 3,560ft. The area's dramatic mountain ranges are definitely worth shouting about, but it's not just the peaks that make this national park so special. There are also 60 miles of coastline, stunning waterfalls, rolling green valleys, peaceful woodlands and wide, wildlife-rich estuaries. Add to all that the famous mountain railways and it's easy to see why Snowdonia attracts over six million visitors a year.

If you're looking for a challenge, Snowdon itself will be difficult to resist: Llanberis is the place to start your ascent on the highest peak, and in the summer months you'll find a little cafe at the summit. Alternatively, get mountain biking at the renowned Coed-y-Brenin centre, fly high on Europe's longest and fastest zipline at Penrhyn Quarry, or ride the Olympic-grade rapids on the Tryweryn River at Bala. History-lovers should make a point of squeezing in a trip to Harlech Castle, a formidable 13th century fortification whose majestic turrets loom high above the beautiful Harlech beach. And just up the coast is the intriguing Italianate fantasy village of Portmeirion, made famous by cult TV show The Prisoner.
