Snowdonia National Park is full of winding paths, lakes, rivers and a mountain peak or two – it’s truly captivating. However, it is easy to bypass the best scenic spots if you’re not sure where they are. We have put together a list of skin tingling sights that will leave you lost for words.
At the top of our list is of course, The Summit. No list for the most scenic spots would be complete without mentioning it. The Summit is a huge 1,085 meters above sea level and if you didn’t know already is on the peak of Mount Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales. The views are simply jaw-dropping with 360-degree views of rolling fields, lakes, wildlife and much much more.
In one of the more remote places of the Snowdonia National Park you will find Cwm Bychan which gives you a new found experience of peace and tranquility like no other. Here you will find wildlife in abundance, stunning rock formations and not forgetting sun-soaked hillsides (depending on the weather of course). Why not take a walk amongst nature to unwind or discover something amazing.
Llanberis Pass is popular with rock climbers and hikers. You will also find it is one of the more popular routes when coming to Snowdonia that almost everyone endures. Along the pass you will find historical slate mines, the twin lakes of Padarn and Peris, not to mention the breathtaking views along the way. However, if walking isn’t really your cup of tea, you can even drive through the countryside lanes or hop on a bus tour.
Often referred to as Snowdonia’s best kept secret, the Rhinog Mountains overlook the surrounding landscape of the show-stopping tallest peak. If you’ve got a day spare on your travels and are keen to hike away from the crowds the Rhinog Mountains are for you. On the dissent you will pass the brilliant blue lake that is Llyn Hywel and further in the distance you can admire the Irish Sea. However, this route isn’t for the faint hearted and can be quite tough if you’re not an experienced hiker but we guarantee the views are simply stunning.
