Snowdon (Yr Wyddfa) is the highest mountain in Wales and is enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of visitors every year because of its many different routes to the summit and the breath taking views that they each offer. Whether you’re a novice walker or an experienced adrenaline junkie, there are different routes up Snowdon to suit your level of comfort and experience and, let’s not forget, when you get to the summit, there’s the amazing Snowdon visitor centre and cafe at the top where you can have a brew and take in the scenery.
I’ve been walking around the mountains of Snowdonia for over 20 years. From the first time I ran up Snowdon as a cadet it’s been my passion and during lockdown, when all of us were housebound, I still longed to be outside and walking in the mountain air. Because I couldn’t get out and enjoy the mountain, I decided that I would create this website as a useful guide for any new visitors to Snowdon in order to try and help make your day out as easy and as pleasurable as possible. Within the website, there are full guides to the 7 main Snowdon routes as well as other useful information such as some interesting facts about Snowdon and some of the legends surrounding the iconic peak.
There is something about Snowdon that makes you leave feeling fulfilled and happy. I have never met or passed a single walker that wasn’t enjoying themselves and I have never heard someone recount a story about Snowdon without it being a happy one. If this is your first time up Snowdon, please have a read of some of the guides and decide which is the best path up Snowdon for you, make sure you take the correct gear with you, check the weather before you leave and enjoy your day.
