All The Reasons We Love Snowdon At Lyons Holiday Parks

Share it!

Why Snowdon is the perfect place to visit this summer with the family! Explore nature, get back to basics, and soak up some local culture…

Beautiful, magnificent Snowdon brings tourism to North Wales year on year, with over 360,000 walkers climbing to the summit annually. Snowdonia National Park is famous throughout the world for its mountains, wildlife, and cultural heritage, but with it being right on our doorstep here in Wales, we can sometimes take it for granted. Here at Lyons Holiday Parks, there are many reasons we love Snowdonia – here’s why we urge owners and guests to explore this stunning National Park and all it has to offer!

Views for days in Snowdonia…

There’s no doubt that Snowdonia is an area of outstanding natural beauty. With Mount Snowdon being the highest point in Wales, peaking at 1,085m, those who reach the top are certainly rewarded with astounding views, stretching all the way down to Pembrokeshire, up to England’s Peak District and across to Ireland.


You can pick your own path

There are six official routes up Snowdon to choose from, all of which vary in length and difficulty, with the majority of routes approaching the summit from different sides of the mountain.

Here’s a quick overview:

To avoid the crowds, take the Snowdon Ranger Path.

For the least elevation gain, follow the Pyg Track.

For the best views, take the Miners Track.

For the easiest walk, take the Llanberis Path.

For the most challenging hike, take Watkins Path.

For a quiet and peaceful trek, follow Rhyd Ddu path.

Snowdonia a day out for the whole family

Snowdonia provides the perfect base for both exploring and relaxing, enjoying the views across the breathtakingly beautiful landscape. If you don’t fancy the all-around 6–8-hour hike to the top, there’s no reason to miss out on the magnificent views. Snowdon Mountain Railway is available during peak season to carry you to the peaks and save your legs from tiring!


Your dog will love it!

With plenty of easy-access footpaths and miles upon miles to roam, Snowdonia is the perfect spot to take your pooch on a barkingly brilliant adventure! Determine which path you will take based on both your and your four-legged friends’ ability. Please bear in mind that there is plenty of livestock which graze throughout the national park, so help us keep our paths safe by always keeping your dog on a lead. Remember to take plenty of water and snacks – not just for your dog, but for you too as tackling Mount Snowdon is no mean feat.
