Snowdonia - Things to See & Do

If you want to explore our high mountains, swim in crystal rivers, laze on our sandy beaches or dive into our ancient past…..or zip down a wire at 100 mph…or learn to surf at Surf Snowdonia…or ride our great little steam trains…or venture underground…

There is a so much you can see and do here in Snowdonia’s Mountains and Coasts that sometimes it can be difficult to decide.

We have listed below some links to some activities and attractions, and some popular places to eat, which we hope you will find useful. Below that there is a map which will hopefully help you locate some of the highlights that you may be looking for here in North Wales.
