A Short Break In Llanberis, Wales

Llanberis is a lakeside village based in north west Wales and is often the starting point for many hikers to climb Snowden (The highest mountain in Wales). Due to a number of restrictions still in place around the United Kindgom from the pandemic, we decided to explore more of the British Isles.

We had a number of things planned for this trip. But mother nature had other ideas and a storm rolled in. There were a number of warnings to stay off the water as this rolled in, stop some of the activities we had planned and to avoid the peaks. In fact there was devestating news that two women were struck by lightning on the summit of Mount Snowden during our last day (Thankfully they survived, but just demonstrated how unpredictable our British weather can be and how dangerous hiking could potentially be).

There is so much to do in and around this beautiful area. I'm going to share some of the best parts of it along with some of the activities we were hoping to do, so you can plan your own amazing adventure to Llanberis and Snowdonia. The area is well known for hiking, rock climbing and as an adventure destination; where you can spend anywhere from a day to a month packing activities and experiences in the surrounding national park, villages and heritage sites.
