Llanberis Tourist Information
A paradise for lovers of the great outdoors

Llanberis is a village set amidst beautiful surroundings nestled on the banks of lake Llyn Padarn at the foot of Mount Snowdon, the village lies eight miles from Caernarfon and just over sixteen miles from Betws-y-Coed.

This small but beautiful village has a varied selection of shops along with an array of places to get something to eat and a well-deserved drink.

Llyn Padarn - A simply stunning lake
Llanberis village lies on the Southern shore of Llyn Padarn, a stunningly beautiful two-mile-long lake that also happens to be one of the largest natural lakes in Wales, and is designated as a site of Special Scientific Interest. This majestic lake is perfect for a whole host of water-based activities like canoeing, windsurfing and sailing, it's also renowned for its wild swimming. Llyn Padarn offers anglers some excellent game fishing for brown trout, sea trout and salmon, it's also home to the rare Arctic charr. Snowdonia Star provides boat trips on Llyn Padarn, the boat trips operate between May and October with each trip taking roughly 40 - 45 minutes (it should be noted that the trips are weather dependant).

Ascending the highest mountain in Wales on foot
The village is the starting point for the 'Llanberis Path' (aka the Tourist path), a popular route for those who plan a walk up to the summit of Snowdon, it's several miles long and considered to be one of, if not the longest routes up the mountain. Although the Llanberis Path may be long it's possibly one of the easiest routes up on foot as it's the most gradual.

Journey through the clouds without a harp
For a truly memorable route up to the summit of Snowdon (1085 Metres) why not let the train take the strain? Starting at Llanberis Station, the Snowdon Mountain Railway takes its passengers on an hour-long journey up this magnificent mountain by means of steam and diesel locomotives, the journey up gives passengers the chance to relax and soak up the amazing panoramic views (Don't forget your camera).

Staying with trains, the village is home to Llanberis Lake Railway which offers a leisurely five-mile long narrow gauge steam train journey alongside the shores of Lake Padarn, travelling through the Padarn Country Park affords passengers some of the most beautiful views of Snowdon as the train makes its way to Penllyn.

Within Padarn Country Park is the National Slate Museum, it's a fantastic free entry visitor attraction that's spread over a wide area and suitable for all ages. The museum offers an interesting insight into the slate mining industry and its workers, there are talks and demonstrations, workshops and reconstructed quarrymen's houses to look around.

From past to present day Llanberis we head to Electric Mountain Visitor Centre which is located on the shore of Llyn Padarn, here visitors are taken an underground tour of Dinorwig Power Station, home to the largest pumped-storage hydro-electric power station in Europe. Buried inside Elidir Mountain are vast chambers and huge tunnels, the tunnels cover a distance of almost ten miles and they're so big that a bus could drive through them, infact, they do just that with the tour visitors onboard!

Here in Llanberis you'll find a wealth of outdoor pursuits on offer such as mountain biking, pony trekking and countless walking routes. Llanberis is also home to Vivian Quarry, formally a slate quarry it's now a fantastic location for scuba diving as the clear waters can reach depths of up to eighteen metres, Vivian Quarry crag is ideally suited for climbing with some fairly easy routes up like 'Mental Lentils' and some routes which are extremely hard and only for the most courageous climbers like the 'Dawes Of Perception'.
