While Snowdonia is undeniably one of the most beautiful parts of Wales, its decidedly otherworldly landscape makes it unlike anywhere else in the UK. And with over 800 miles of stunning landscape to explore in the region, there’s enough variety to satisfy even the hardest to please holidaymaker.
So while Mount Snowdon itself may dominate your idea of Snowdonia, in the same way it towers over the landscape, there’s plenty more to see and do in the original Welsh National Park. Here are just a few of our favourites…
• Walking the landscape is all well and good, but we think the Welsh Highland Heritage Railway is one of the best ways to explore Snowdonia. A delightful steam train ride through the meadows, you’ll also have possibly the most fun history lesson ever on your journey.
• More fun historic insights can be found at the Welsh Slate Museum. Along with cutting-edge presentations of life in the quarries, you’ll find a wealth of beauty in the museum’s location, in the shadow of Elidir mountain.
