Snowdonia Walking Weekends
Snowdonia National Park is a perfect walking weekend destination. With over 830 square miles of parkland there is certainly enough walking to keep you going for a 3- or 4-day walking weekend in Wales.
Walking Mount Snowdon
The best known landmark in Snowdonia is Mount Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales standing 1085 metres high. There are 7 routes up to the summit to choose from depending on how experienced a walker you are and what the conditions are. These include the Pyg Track, The Miners Path, The Llanberis Track, The Watkins Path, The Rhydd Ddu Track, The Snowdon Ranger and The Snowdon Horseshoe. There is also the Snowdon Mountain Railway that runs a distance of 4.5 miles from the village of Llanberis to the summit for tourists less able to tackle the ascent by foot.
Other Attractions in Snowdonia
As well as walking there are plenty of other attractions to keep you coming back time and again to Snowdonia and the surrounding areas, including the Llanberis Railway, Conway Castle, Portmeirion village and gardens and plenty of beaches and historic pretty coastal towns.
A little known fact – Sir Edmund Hillary used Snowdon as a training ground in preparation for his successful Mount Everest climb back in 1953.
