Snowdonia National Park in North Wales has a unique landscape, consisting of nine mountain ranges, with some peaks rising majestically over 3,000 feet. Some craggy and awe inspiring, like Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon), Tryfan and nearby Cader Idris. Steep river gorges and waterfalls compliment the green valleys.
The highest peak is Snowdon, with views across the Irish sea. The mountain is famous for the Snowdonia train running up the side on the historic mountain railway.
The landscape as a whole is very diverse. The Dyfi, Mawddach and Dwyryd estuaries flow out into the Irish sea which itself breaks its waters along 23 miles of coastline and sandy beaches. On the The Dwyryd at the western edge of central Snowdonia, you will find Port Merrion, famous for the location of the 60’s TV series, ‘The Prisoner’
Snowdonia offers a vast network of trails providing a wide range of leisure activities. Mountain Biking, cycling, walking, trail running. Watersports centres are based on some of Snowdonia’s many lakes like lake Bala.
It’s not all about activity though. Thousands of visitors visit Snowdonia every year to relax and enjoy the stunning landscape.
