The Snowdonia National Park boasts vast areas of natural beauty and unique scenery. It is known as ‘Eryri’ in Welsh, a name that can be translated to “the place of the eagles”. The park which covers 838 square miles is one of the three natural parks found in Wales. The oldest of them all was officially classified as a national park in 1951. The scenery that can be appreciated and the activities that can be carried out at Snowdonia are vastly versatile. There is without a doubt something for everyone as Snowdonia’s diversity caters to all tastes. Whether you are seeking pulse raising activities, or simply looking to admire the one-of-a-kind scenery of the Snowdonia Mountains, lakes, rivers and forests, you will not be disappointed.
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, which are a rarity and are becoming increasingly endangered. There are 23 miles of coastline located in the park thanks to the Dyfi, Maywddach and Dwyryd estuaries.
