Situated on the west coast of Britain covering 823 square miles of diverse landscapes, Snowdonia National Park is the largest National Park in Wales.
Snowdonia boasts the highest mountain in Wales, and the largest natural lake in Wales, as well as a wealth of picturesque villages like Betws y Coed and Beddgelert.
Snowdonia's landscape is unique. The nine mountain ranges cover approximately 52% of the Park and include many peaks that are over 3,000 feet (915m). Apart from the beauty and charm of its high mountains, Snowdonia is a delightfully varied landscape of steep river gorges, waterfalls and green valleys. Oak, ash, rowan and hazel woodlands are found scattered throughout the Park whilst the beautiful Dyfi, Mawddach and Dwyryd estuaries and 23 miles of coastline and sandy beaches contribute to the overall diversity of the landscape.
Snowdonia is the perfect place for walkers, with a varied terrain that is suitable for all abilities from the most serious walker to those that prefer a less strenuous ramble. Immerse yourself in the mountain peaks, lakes, forests, rivers and coastal areas. For those hiking up to the summit of Snowdon the brand new granite visitor centre awaits, with its large views from the `window on the world'. It is also the terminus for the Snowdon Mountain Railway.
Snowdonia National Park also has a vast array of cycling and mountain biking trails. Take advantage of traffic-free trails ideal for families and numerous forestry trails and mountain biking trails offering excellent facilities to both mountain bikers and families alike.
Snowdonia has many attractions on offer to the visitor from underground audiovisual tours to farm tours, narrow gauge railway trips through breathtaking countryside and for the more adventurous, white water rafting and rock climbing. No wonder its one of the most popular places to holiday in Wales!
