Snowdonia National Park Location

Snowdonia National Park covers 823 square miles and boasts some of the highest peaks in Wales, reaching to 1085m at the top of Snowdon. 

As well as its impressive mountains, the Park boasts a range of other natural features – rivers, lakes, waterfalls, moorlands, forests, glacial valleys and a stunning coastline.

Mining was once a major industry in the area, nowadays these former slate quarries and gold and copper mines are popular visitor attractions.

Walking is the most popular activity in the Park but climbing, white water rafting, pony trekking and wind surfing are also available.

Several small railways run through the park and provide a great way to take in the scenery including The famous Ffestiniog Railway, Snowdon Mountain Railway and Bala Lake Railway.

There are 17 National Nature Reserves in Snowdonia, more than in any other National Park in England and Wales and some 56 Sites of Special Scientific Interest.
