Snowdonia National Park

The Snowdonia National Park boasts vast areas of natural beauty and unique scenery. It is known as Eryri by Welsh a name that can be translated as “the place of the eagles”.

The park which covers 838 square miles is one of the three natural parks found in Wales and the oldest one being designated as one in 1951.  The area of the Snowdonia National Park has so much to offer to visitors that if you are visiting it for the first time you will wonder why it took you so long to do it.

Both the scenery and the activities that can be done here are so diverse that anyone will find something to suit their taste.

The landscape is breathtaking and unique. There are nine mountain ranges here and they cover over half of the national park’s surface. Some of the peaks reach over 3,000 feet (915m).

But the mountains are not the only reason people are enchanted by this landscape. There are many river gorges, waterfalls and valleys. Forests are filled with ash, oak, rowan and hazel trees.

If one needs even more diversity, there are 23 miles of coastline located in the park as well thanks to the Dyfi, Maywddach and Dwyryd estuaries.

Nature is not the only thing that can be found in the national park as it is also the place where over 26,000 permanent residents live their day-to-day life.

Whatever the weather there is more than enough to keep you busy.
