Destination: Snowdonia, North Wales

Snowdonia is the second-largest national park in Britain and one of the most beautiful and scenically diverse areas in the British Isles. Mainly mountainous, it encompasses a large area of beautiful and often spectacular wild landscapes.

As well as classic mountains and cliffs you’ll find green rolling hills, wild heather moorlands, ancient forests, rivers and waterfalls and an unspoilt coastline of long sandy beaches and rocky headlands. The Snowdonia National Park is wild, rugged and adventurous, a great area for walking and climbing. Snowdonia is also traditional, cultural and historic with splendid castles and a rich cultural heritage. 

The landscape here was shaped over 25,000 years ago during the last ice age by glaciers which carved deep valleys and passes between high mountain peaks.

The most famous mountain is Mount Snowdon, Yr Wyddfa in Welsh. At 3559ft or 1085m the airy summit of Snowdon is the highest point in England and Wales.
Snowdonia has a long mountaineering and rock climbing history, with many famous climbs and rock of the highest quality. It was in Snowdonia that members of the first successful attempt on Mt Everest trained, and it has been the training ground for many of Britain’s best-known mountaineers since then. Any aspiring climber at some stage in their climbing life comes to Snowdonia to climb cliffs which are as famous amongst climbers as anywhere in the world.
