Fancy a walk up Snowdon?

Snowdon is here for the taking! At 1085 metres it is the tallest mountain in Wales and has a whole range of walking routes to the summit. It’s one of the mountains that comprises the National Three Peaks Challenge – and the climb up Snowdon is usually the first or final mountain in the brace.  Snowdon is also part of the Welsh 3 Peaks and the Welsh 14/15 Peak Challenge.

The most popular route up Snowdon is the Llanberis Path. This path is generally accepted to be the easiest route in non-winter conditions, but note that’s ‘easiest’ and not easy – as there’s no easy way to walk up this mountain! You can choose to park at the Snowdon car park, or get the Snowdon Sherpa bus service to this car park from either Llanberis, Betws y Coed or elsewhere on its route.

If you’re feeling a little lazy and you don’t fancy the ascent then you could always opt for a helping hand up Snowdon via the Snowdon Mountain Railway. If you;re doing that then you might also want to stay in the Suffolk Hut – a beautifully converted railway wagon.

The North Wales Pilgrims Way

Another very popular footpath route that passes right by the Shepherds Hideaway is the North Wales Pilgrims Way, which was recently featured as the focus of series 6 of the BBC programme Pilgrims Way. It’s a beautiful walk, and known as the ‘Welsh Camino’ and even if you are not religious it provides a focal route for exploring much that North Wales has to offer.

Coastal walks near us…

Or a nearly flat, easy walk in the mountains…

If you’re less keen on sand, and want to the smell of pine in your nostrils during your walking holiday in Snowdonia then you might wish to go for a walk round Llyn Brenig.
