Driving Around Snowdonia in a Campervan
It also means that you can visit all of the major landmarks within the National Park in a shorter space of time than if you were to walk or use public transport.
It’s understandable that you might be thinking about the space constraints of sleeping in a campervan, but they typically sleep up to four people – which is plenty enough room if there’s only two of you.
Camper vans also come with all the basic essentials you need – cooking equipment, cutlery, gas cooking hobs, and even a television at times! It’s likely you’ll need to bring your own bedding or sleeping bags, but the rest is taken care of for you.
So where do you begin once you’ve started your journey around Snowdonia?
SnowdonThe first landmark that springs to mind for many is Snowdon. This famed mountain is the highest in Wales, and thousands of tourists reach its peak every year.
If you don’t fancy the climb, you can reach the summit via the Snowdon railway service. There’s a car park at the Pen-Y-Pass route for Snowdon, however this can fill up very quickly, especially in high tourist seasons.
Along the way you’ll discover beautiful Welsh woodland and mountain scenery, as well as a number of wildlife species which are resident to the area. If you’re looking for a taste of true welsh scenery, the Aber Falls path is a great place to start.
