Our guide to luxury Snowdonia holidays

From its craggy, cloud-piercing peaks and wildflower-cloaked valleys to its protected parklands and sweeping coastline, Eyri calls to your inner adventurer. Welcome to the Unique guide to luxury Snowdonia holidays.

Set between Conwy and Gwynedd, Snowdonia is a masterclass in Mother Nature’s majesty. Spanning 823 square miles, the National Park (Eryri) is Wales’ largest, encompassing fifteen peaks, nine mountain ranges, and thirty-seven miles of coastline for sandcastles, surfing, and spying bottlenose dolphins through the fray. It’s unsurprising, then, that the area draws adventurers in their droves seeking a heady dose of the Great Outdoors; so, whether your walking boots, wetsuit, or mountain bike take precedent on the packing list, let our guide to luxury Snowdonia holidays lead the way on everything to see, do, and where to stay while you’re here.

Summiting Snowdon might be what brought you, but there are plenty of hikes to bookmark, including the rock formation of Glyderau Traverse and mystical trails of Cader Idris. Of course, it’s not all footwork; the region is rich with UNESCO slate landscapes, storied castles, and traditional villages – such as Betws-y-Coed and Beddgelert. Those with thick skin can brave wild swims in Watkin Path waterfall, go white-water rafting on the Tryweryn River, or head to Bala Lake for sailing, SUPing, and windsurfing, before returning to a rural idyll for dusk-lit dips in the hot tub as supper simmers away on the stove. This is Snowdonia – but not as you know it.
