The Snowdonia National Park is a special part of the country where people come to relax and enjoy a wide range of leisure activities in spectacular surroundings.
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.
Every year over 6 million visitor days are spent here. If you're thinking of coming here, we hope this part of the site will help you to plan your visit and make it more enjoyable. You could also visit one of our Information Centres for a warm welcome upon your arrival.
Walk of the Month - Llwybr Foel Ispri
1 February 2019
This is a thrilling walk that is suitable for all and affords the best views in Snowdonia! A debatable statement some might say, but be prepared to be amazed! Early evening is my favourite time to visit Foel Ispri. There are wooden benches here and there where you can sit back and relax, and most importantly, wonder at the best view in Snowdonia!!« more details
