We decided to head up Snowdon with the kids, and took the Llanberis Path, hearing it is the easiest route. The first part is on a tarmac road, heading on to the mountain and well maintained path. We got as far as Halfway House, where we got a great bowl of soup and cup of tea! My 4 year old walked the path all the way back down, despite the rain and snow!! Can’t wait to get to the top with him when the weather is slightly better

My first ever visit to Wales and the first thing I wanted to do was climb Snowdon!! It took 4 hours to the top and 2 hours down but me and my partner do alot of mountain climbing in the Lakes so we're used to it. The first part was lovely weather and terrain was good. In the car park there was a man telling everyone to beware of the conditions and made sure we had plenty of clothing including food water gloves hat suitable footwear etc. He was right! Halfway up the snow came and the fog came and visibility got really bad. People were coming down with cramp one and ice picks so we got worried. With the right gear we made it. At the top there was no view of anything due to snow and fog and very slippy under foot.
I say Snowdon is an awesome mountain to climb but it is hard work! And please make sure you have the correct provisions before you set off and check the weather beforehand!!

The national park is a stunning area of Britain. The walk up Snowdon is fairly long but can be done by none hikers I would say. Gets a little steep at the end but fairly steady most of the way. Get good weather and you are in for a treat.

4 of us non-walkers went here to get the train. unfortunately they needed 20people to run it and at 1.25. they only had 14, which didnt increase so no train. we went into the restaurant, that was ok. nothing special, but again, this place is mainly for walkers, and hikers. we went back again on another day, only to find that we had to pay £8 for the car park, so we didnt stop.!! the price for the tickets (even tho it was only half-way) was £46 for the two of us, so plus £8 car park fees,we thought that £54 was a tadge steep for a half-way train.which was a journey of less than 2hrs. gift shop, ok. again bit expensive, but a wide variety of gifts.

Excellent walking destination. Went with a 12 and 9 year old, and from pen-y-pass it was defined as a three hour trip to the summit.

We got 2/3’s up the mountain in 90 mins (stopping for a picnic lunch on the mountainside) and decided that was far enough. We were 600m up. It took and hour to get back.

Views were amazing and the walk was hard but manageable for the kids. It was cold so be sure to wear appropriate clothing.

Definitely a must do though. Would highly recommend.
