Snowdon (Yr Wyddfa) is Wales' highest mountain at 1,085m and is often described as the busiest mountain in Great Britain. It is no surprise, that for many it is THE reason to visit Wales. If the sky is clear, you have a beautiful view of the impressive mountain from Lodge Dinorwig. The picture above was captured by our webcam. If you want to walk up, cycle up or take the train to the top, this peak offers a way up for every level of fitness.


If you would like to explore Snowdon by bike, you need to be aware of the voluntary cycle agreement: No cycling between 10am and 5pm from the 1st May and 30th September.

With many paths to choose from, the Sherpa bus is the perfect way to explore different paths on your way up and down. Click here for a map and timetable of the bus.

Before heading out in the mountains make sure you have all your equipment. The weather in high altitude can change quickly and it is important to be properly prepared.

Check out the websites below for comprehensive information about the different paths leading to the top of Snowdon.

If you would like a mountain leader to guide you on your journey or a mountain bike leader, please get in touch, we will point you to the right people so enjoy a safe day in Snowdonia.



Alternatively you can enjoy the Snowdon Mountain Railway to get to the top of Snowdon. It is advisable to book your trip in advance as it gets very popular at times.
