on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park, the Conwy Valley offers
endless opportunities for walking and climbing holidays all year round.
Snowdonia is one of Britain's great national parks and a national treasure.
It stretches from Conwy to Aberdyfi and is some 25 miles wide and unlike
many other national parks it is rarely crowded. As well as lakes and
rivers such as Geirionydd and Crafnant, there are cliff top tracks and
Roman roads which cross the mountains. Snowdonia actually embraces 15
peaks over 3,000 feet high, so there is no shortage of challenging climbs
for the mountaineer or hill walker. The National Mountain Centre at
Capel Curig offers a wide range of courses. Betws-y-Coed is the charming,
if bustling 'Gateway to Snowdonia' where you can buy everything you
need to tackle the mountains.
