Snowdonia: More than just a National Park

Snowdonia is more than just one mountain, a train track and some Welsh towns. Snowdonia is a place in Wales packed with things to do for families, couples of all ages or even an individual just needing to get away from it all. But what is there to do, really?


Let’s start with the obvious, the mountain that is in the name of the beautiful region called Snowdonia. A walk up

Miners Path to Snowdon

Snowdon is something anyone who comes to Wales really has to do; it is perhaps top of the Welsh bucket list. Thankfully, Snowdon is not as challenging as climbing Everest or the Matterhorn, Snowdon is a mere 1085 m compared to Everest at over 8000 m. Despite it not being as high as Everest, the climb is still challenging. The climb requires some planning, some good walking shoes and should ideally be completed with someone who is experienced as conditions can and often do change.

There are six main routes up Snowdon that includes the Llanberis Path that runs parallel with the summit railway and the Snowdon horseshoe that is a little  more challenging.  The climb is worth every step, the scenery is magnificent at any time of year and the fact that you have reached the summit of the highest mountain in England and Wales is very special.

Once you have climbed Snowdon, you may well need a good night’s rest at Bryn Bella Guest House and a hearty breakfast before heading out again to tackle one of the many other fantastic mountains in Snowdonia. How about some bouncing?

White Water Rafting

Wales 2016: The Year of Adventure - Kayaking

White Water fun in North Wales

Snowdonia is not just about mountains it is home to some of the roughest, wildest and most spectacular rivers in Europe. One such river is the Tryweryn and by means of a dam release, it has been converted into a white water rafting thrill ride. The rapids created are managed by the National Whitewater Center ensuring this attraction is well maintained and safe. It is not recommended for young children but anyone who decided to come kayaking or whitewater rafting is guaranteed a fast, thrilling and exhilarating ride down to the bottom of the rapids.

After bouncing and sailing the rapids Bryn Bella Guest House will be a welcome site again as you close your eyes and get a good night’s rest before continuing to explore Snowdonia. Tomorrow, you tell yourself, you will do something a little more relaxing.


Royal St David’s
