The North Wales / Snowdonia/Gwynedd region
Snowdonia is the soul of Wales. One of the most ancient and hauntingly beautiful areas in Europe. Called Eryri (the place of eagles) in Welsh, Snowdonia welcomes visitors to a breathtaking natural environment, with Snowdonia National Park at its heart and so much more. People have lived, worked and thrived in this unique Celtic principality for more than 5000 years. Their legacy is a land which will fascinate the visitor with its rich opportunities for adventure, activity and discovery and its unique and ancient language, Cymraeg. Come visit Snowdonia and explore the contrasts from gentle rolling hills of Betws Y Coed to vast and awesome majesty of Llanberis and Snowdon itself. Since Prince Charles condemned the Snowdon Visitors Centre as the "highest slum in Britain", work is now complete on the stunning new Hafod Eryri Centre at the summit.
