Visiting Snowdonia

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.
