Celebrating the Eryri/Snowdonia National Park

Posted by Dominic Lee on

This week’s featured national park is the rugged and beautiful Eryri /Snowdonia National Park in North Wales ⛰🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿

Designated as a national park in 1951, Snowdonia is home to no less than nine mountain ranges, encompassing some of Britain's most popular peaks, including Snowdon, Tryfan and Cadair Idris to name but a few. This, and its relative accessibility for large parts of the UK, have made it a magnet for hill walkers and climbers for many years. Indeed, the mountains of Snowdonia have played their part in mountaineering history, with the slopes of Snowdon and the Glyderau acting as the training ground for Sir Edmund Hillary's 1953 Everest expedition.

It’s not all mountains though! Snowdonia also boasts beautiful beaches, historic castles, rivers, waterfalls and lush green valleys.

Definitely one of our favourite national parks, we can't wait to visit it again post lockdown!
