If you want to add a hiking adventure to your bucket list, then the Snowdonia National Park is an obvious choice.

Situated in the heart of Wales, this breathtaking region offers stunning views, gorgeous lakes, meandering valleys and rugged mountains. And, of course, Mount Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales.

If your level of experience is not up to mountain climbing standards, there are plenty of easier hikes.

Day Hikes in Snowdonia

You can start with a day hike, with over 1,700 miles of trails to explore at your leisure! Some areas require elements of scrambling, so bear this in mind when planning your route. Always ensure you are wearing the correct gear and have some form of communication with you.

If your family is joining the trip and wants a shorter, scenic hike, consider Aber Falls, which is less than three miles long and is even pushchair-friendly!


More Challenging Hikes

If you are a more experienced hiker, then you can try the Cadir Idris mountain, one of the Welsh Three Peaks. It’s not as busy as the other trails, but still has its challenges, and takes around four to six hours. Check the weather forecast before you set off, and let somebody know where you are going.


The Ultimate Challenge

The Welsh 3000s challenge involves climbing all 15 peaks in Wales above 3000ft within 24 hours, and it goes without saying that only those with a genuine experience of difficult terrain should attempt it.

At over 30 miles long and with high elevation, there is no guarantee you will finish the challenge in the time limit.

Whether you are a novice hiker and just want to explore the scenery, or have more experience and want a more adventurous trip, Snowdonia has it all.
