    funny and good view
    via Crib Goch to summit that unexpected rock climbing as i dont know what means scrambling before(sad). however, that was so funny and have very good view from here. although a bit tired and sometimes confuse where i climbed up but so far manageable at sunny day without windy but surely not for novice walker and acrophobia. and when reached Yr Wyddfa that always fog and so crowded but good for have coffee break at here.

    Scenic Journey from Conwy to Maesycwmmer
    We embarked on a journey through Snowdonia National Park, driving from Conwy to Maesycwmmer. It proved to be a captivating experience, showcasing Wales' untouched beauty. This picturesque route boasts a captivating mix of rugged terrain, ancient woodlands, and towering peaks, making it a destination not to be missed. Despite the heavy rain and chilly weather that day, we managed to stop for a brief hike to admire a waterfall.

    Absolutely stunning
    Passing through Snowdonia National Park was truly delightful and I only wish that I had gotten to stay a bit longer — maybe another time. If you love mountains and nature, you’re in for a treat. My group even got to see a few wild mountain goats.

    Camp Stesion - BEST CAMPSITE in the UK so far.
    Camp Stesion, a hillside farm in Wales, is the BEST CAMPSITE I've experienced in the UK by far. It's small, quiet rules are enforced, and the views are amazing. The village of Trawsfyndd, down the hill, has a pub, a village shop, and the nicest people I've ever encountered as a tourist/hill walker. The campsite has six non-electric pitches, a yurt, two pods and a shepherd's hut. There's a shower block and a camp kitchen (out of the wind), and toilets, all with hot water. Every site is large and has a stone ring for campfires. Privacy is well provided for by design. The night sky is very bright when the clouds part, amazing views. The farm owners/hosts are justly proud of this site and they work hard to make sure that guests have all they need to have a great experience. I stayed for 5 nights in my tent and a pod, and I loved it.

The park is vast with so much to see and enjoy - Snowden itself, waterfalls, glens, deserted quarries, old mining villages, more modern settlements, stone bridges, stone circles and sheep - and lots of them. There are quite a few pubs and cafes too and plenty of places to park the car to see it all. If you prefer you can get around by bus but car for me is easier and more flexible - depending of course on where you choose to stay. No matter where that is you won't be disappointed.

Snowdonia was my favorite stop during my visit to the U.K. It was breathtakingly beautiful and unspoiled. I could have spent a week just exploring this park with it's craggy boulder studded hills, waterfalls, streams, and bucolic scenes of wandering sheep. I was able to go on a couple nice walks on very scenic paths near Swallow Falls.

Stunning national park with great mountain, lake, and valley views. If you are not hiking, hire a guide to take you around the park. There are so many legends and historical facts that you won’t know on your own such as King Arthur, Merlin, the Welsh dragon etc.

Snowdon speaks for itself. Truly amazing. Must see and not the most difficult of climbs. My wife & I chose to hike up the Pyg Track and down the Miners Track as suggested by 2 friends. Great reccomendations. Perfect day in the most perfect of places.

Came on holiday to snowdonia this weekend and the first days it was a visit to Betsi Co Ed, spent the day walking around the town spreading corona virus and generally causing a nuisance with our North Face Jackets on.

After the big Betsi day it was time to climb the biggest mountain in the Uk, actually I think Europe, maybe even the world. Snowdon Car park was full so we just double parked on the road, there were signs up saying no parking but they must have been for Somone else. I set off climbing in my best pair of Adidas sliders and now they are ruined due to the appalling state of the path, I really think this needs to be repaired before more people ruin their best flip flops. Great to get to the top although the que to touch the summit was about an hour.

Decided we wanted to ‘wild camp’ as we had seen it on Instagram so we took our 15 person tent to Llyn Gayreoned where we pitched it up in the middle of the car park. It was a totally epic experience, we collected fire wood by breaking branches off all the near by trees and had a huge campfire on the nice bit of grass next to the lake. Sadly the bins were overflowing so we just had to leave our rubbish all over the grass and car park but it was ok as the wind got up and blew it all away in to the lake

Does Bear Grills poo in the woods? Yes he does and so do we, what a Liberating experience pooping where ever we fancied, we also left little piles of toilet paper where ever we dropped one off, like a cute little calling card

On our last day we decided to visit conwy, so many people, carnt believe how busy it was, no chance of social distancing, ah well. Ate chips on the quay, fed most of them to the cute seagulls. Had ice creams, got attacked by the seagulls, perhaps they aren’t that cute.

All in all a good holiday but really hope we can go on our package holiday to Benidorm next year, it’s warmer, beer is cheaper and they speak English not that funny Welsh

We were fortunate to be one couple of three on an organized tour of Snowdonia and other areas in North Wales from the cruise ship, Grand Princess on May 18, 2011. Our tour guide was John Hadwin, owner of VIP Travel Services. Due to our limited time in port and since it was our first time in Wales, John arranged for us to make photo stops at an amazing number of beautiful sights, given our choice to forgo lengthy visits at any of them.

Our 6-hour tour, starting at the port of Holyhead (off the coast of Anglesey), made its first brief stop at the town with the longest name in the world (15 syllables, so I won't attempt to include it here). We then went to a viewing spot on the Menai Straits and saw the first suspension bridge of its kind, plus parts of Snowdonia. From there, we visited Caernarfon Castle, Lake Padarn, some beautiful passes in Snowdonia National Park, "The Ugly House," Swallow Falls, the towns of Betws-y-Coed and Conwy (with its 13th c. castle) and returned via the scenic Synchnant Pass to Holyhead.

Despite the cloudy start to our day, we were rewarded by magnificent scenery everywhere we went. It was a wonderful combination of medieval castles and the natural beauty of mountains, water and pastoral meadows. I'd highly recommend a visit to Snowdonia and other parts of North Wales, and would suggest you spend far more time there than we did while our ship was in port. We will return.
