Discover Some of the Best Walks in Snowdonia

If you enjoy walking AND spectacular scenery, you should try some of the many beautiful walks within Snowdonia National Park.

With 1,497 miles of approved paths, there are walks for everyone, from gentle strolls through to more difficult hikes, and most are dog friendly.

At Fifth Wheel Co. , we are all about finding great things to do when exploring the area in your tourer, so to help you along the way, we have highlighted a sample of our favourite walks:

Cwm Idwal Walk

Dog Friendly: Yes

Walk time: 3 hours
Walking level: Moderate

A stunning walk where you can enjoy impressive mountain views within the oldest nature reserve in Wales.  Famous for its rock formations and rare plant life, the walk will take you to the stunning ice sculpted Cwm Idwal – a bowl shaped hollow filled with the clear waters of Llyn Idwal.


Gelert’s Grave Walk, Beddgelert

Dog friendly: Yes
Walk time: 40 mins to 1 hour
Walking level: Easy

This walk uncovers the legend of Gelert, the favourite and faithful hound of 13th century prince, LLywelyn the Great, who was mistakenly killed by the prince when he thought he had harmed his baby.  When the prince realised Gelert had saved the baby from a wolf, he was grief-stricken and remorseful.  Llywelyn gave the faithful hound a ceremonial burial by the river and Gelert was eventually immortalised in the name the village is known by today Beddgelert.

The walk leads you along an even path from the village centre, along the banks of the river to the site of Gelert’s Grave.
