The mountians around Gwynedd are world famous. People have been visiting them for centuries, including Charles Darwin in 1831. In the 1950s the successful Everest team established their training headquarters in Snowdonia.

Along almost 200 miles of seashore you will find wooded estuaries, large sandy beaches, wild cliffs, secluded bays and sheltered harbours.

Travelling between the Conwy and Dyfi estuaries you will find the sheltered waters of the Menai Strait, the lovely Llyn Peninsula (an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty') and the mountain-backed Cardigan Bay.



The Snowdonia mountains and coast has evolved from a rich tapestry of history, culture and landscape that dates back to pagan and even prehistoric times.

Evidence of the past can still be seen in the dramatic landscapes, from standing stones to a network of Celtic hill forts and religious shrines, medieval castles and churches and remains of early industry.
