Camping in Snowdonia

Things to Do in the Local Area

The National Mountaineering Centre at Plas-y-Brenin is only 3 miles away, and mountain bike hire and pony trekking are available within 10 miles.

The nearest start point for Snowdon is Pen-Y-Pass, located about 7 miles from Gwern Gof Isaf.

The site is on the long distance ‘Sustrans’ cycle route, and the bunk house is perfect for the first night stop on the Cambrian Way long distance footpath.

We love it when people dream up crazy ideas, and make them happen. There’s a lot of that going on in North Wales: visitor experiences that sound like they were made up in the pub, by nutters, and then - against all odds and sanity - brought brilliantly to life. Take a look at some of our recommendations below.
