I am sure that most people visiting Snowdonia National Park are left speechless by the sheer beauty of Mother Nature. And most visitors leave amazing reviews about the National Park and the majestic beauty of Snowdonia. I am one of those who would like to go back and experience it again and again. But I would like to mention one... More

Been many times both in full snow and in sun. It's a new challenge every time which is what keeps us coming back. Simply stunning.

The highest mountain of Wales and England and so beautiful views! I've climbed Snowdon via Llanberis Path and this took me 6 hours in total (4 hrs to the top and 2 hrs down) but it was worth it! And the weather was brilliant! Worth an effort! One of the most amazing activities so far! I awarded mysefl with the... More

Lovely place nice for a walk or there is a train that goes up to the top. We looked in the visitors centre that has a small cinema that showed a birds eye view of flying over the mountain lasted about 20 min and was free worth seeing. A few shops selling Welsh cakes and nice food.

I climbed this with my partner in October 2016. This has to be one the most amazing activities to do. The views you will take it will stay with you forever. The whole day took us 6.5 hours. We parked at the Pen-y-Pass (£10 a day) and went up the miners track. This path starts of pretty flat with a... More

With the weather forecast predicting glorious sunshine, and me having a hankering for some waterfalls as well as a mountain, this path seemed to fit the bill. Having read reviews beforehand, we were prepared for the climb at the end. However, the forecast wasn't quite correct, but we decided to head on up through drizzle then sleet and finally biting...

I love Snowdonia and getting to the top of Snowdon is a great experience. We did the Watkins (brutal but very scenic) and the Rhyd Ddu (easier, great walk along craggy tops at the end). The only let down is the cafe at the top. I am all for coffee but, after a long climb, the railway going, flip flopped... More

Early jan on a clear day with no training or preparation per se, we took a "strolle" up the llanberis path, one of the easier routes to the summit. Good boots, jacket, gloves, hat, scarfs, snacks and water is all we took but even on a nice day i would advise wrapping up well as the wind bites cold. We... More
