3 of the Most Scenic Walks in Snowdonia

Snowdonia is the national park which truly has it all. If you want to hike up a mountain, you’ll be completely spoilt for choice. The same goes if you want a stroll around a lake, or to explore a valley. What's best is - it’s all jaw-droppingly stunning, and we have a list of some of the most beautiful spots for you to choose from for your next adventure. 

Fancy residing in this area of the country? With apartments North Wales, your dream could be a reality. 

Cwm Idwal

Cwm Idwal is just past Bethesda and the Ogwen Valley. Follow the rocky path up to Llyn Idwal, and you’ll be met with the dramatic slopes of the Glyderau.

There is a reason why this range of mountains is so popular - they are quite the picture. The rocky landscape creates such an effect, it’s almost as if you travelled to another world.

You can choose to take a walk around the lake, or if you’re an experienced walker, climb up to Devils Kitchen to the top!

Drum & Foel Fras

Drum is a mountain within the Carneddau by the coast of Llanfairfechan, standing at 770m tall. This whole area is beautiful, it's not too often you get both incredible views out to sea mixed with dramatic mountain scenery. In North Wales, we get this view a lot.

Start your walk from Aber Falls Nature Reserve car park in the town of Abergwyngregyn. Follow the stone bridge and up the road bending round to the left. Get to the top of here and you should see a sign letting you know you are in the Carneddau. You can begin your circuit around the two mountains from here, heading off to the left. Or, you can take a more leisurely walk between them by heading right into the Anafon Valley - it looks just as dramatic from a lower angle!

Elidir Fawr from Marchlyn Mawr

This walk is called the Marchlyn Circuit. It takes you from a country lane above Deiniolen, up to the Marchlyn Mawr reservoir, and around by going over the peaks of Carnedd y Filiast, Mynydd Perfedd, and Elidir Fawr. 

The walk will take around 3-4 hours to complete and gives you an incredible 360 view of Snowdonia. You’ll have the peaks of Ogwen Valley on display, the Glyderau and over to the Carneddau range, and right across to the Nantlle Valley too. What more could you want?

Now you have a choice of so many places narrowed down, you can’t start planning your next adventure.
