Campsites near Llanberis guide

Overview

Only Llanberis can claim to be the gateway to Snowdon (Yr Wyddfa), the highest peak in Wales and England. Therefore very popular, the village adeptly manages visitor volumes with ample diversions, including the ascent of Snowdon by trail or railway (of course) but also the outstanding mountain country beyond. Discover the region’s slate quarrying heritage or the mysteries of the Dinorwig Power Station via world-class attractions, take strolls alongside Llanberis’ own lake, Llyn Padarn, or climb to a mighty ruined castle. Many of the available Llanberis camping pitches can be found southwest of the village.

Hiking Snowdon from Llanberis

Did we mention that Llanberis is near Wales’ highest mountain? The town is the classic mountain base camp for Snowdon—and ideal for those who want to take things slow and steady on their way up and down. The Llanberis Path is the easiest route up the mountain—but it isn't actually easy. You’ll still be making your way up to a height of 1,085 metres and covering nine miles, but, as that distance is the longest of any of the main routes, it means the ascent is slower and less severe. Even still, staying in Llanberis means you also have the option to sit back and take the easy way up on the scenic Snowdon Mountain Railway.

Top things to do in Llanberis

The mountain railway is not the only one in the area—this is Wales after all—so for a scenic route along Llanberis’ Lake Padarn, jump aboard the Lake Railway. It’s not only a nice way to see some views and keep any kids with a train obsession happy, but it also showcases some of the Llanberis’ other attractions. It passes the 13th-century ruins of Dolbadarn Castle and makes a stop close to the National Slate Museum at the disused Dinorwig Quarry, which closed in 1969. Since 1984, the electricity industry has also hidden itself away underground here. An Electric Mountain visitor centre explains how hydroelectric power is generated. Meanwhile, the closest place to visit both an intact castle and the coast is just eight miles north of Llanberis at Caernarfon.

Where to go

Llyn Padarn & Llyn Peris

These dual lakes showcase a gentler side to the village’s mostly mountainous surroundings, albeit with big peaks immediately above the lakeshores. The lakes form a fetching chain cutting northwest-southeast past Llanberis. Llyn Padarn hosts Padarn Country Park and the Llanberis Lake Railway, while Llyn Peris offers Dinorwig Power Station (built inside a mountain!) and Prince Llywelyn the Great’s one-time stronghold, Dolbadarn Castle. Camp in Llanberis or at Nant Peris to explore.

Snowdon & Around

Snowdon is Wales’ most popular outdoor playground—and Britain’s loftiest land south of Scotland’s Highlands. The start of the main trailhead, Llanberis also has a railway coiling up the peak. Snowdon is busy, but campers can hike slightly away from the peak to find fantastic, less-frequented mountain country. Several campsites are gathered near the main approaches to the summit.

The Glyderau

Across Llanberis Pass from the Snowdon massif is a range of even more dramatic appearance. The Glyderau, and in particular the mountain chain’s eastern peaks of Glyder Fach and Tryfan, are studded with striking rock formations with standout hillwalking and climbing. Gain access from Llanberis via Nant Peris (Old Llanberis) and from Pen-y-Pass, five miles southeast of Llanberis. Campsites on the southeast side of Llyn Peris make good bases for exploring.

When to go

Such is Llanberis’ appeal that people visit year-round. It is, however, very cold and wet for camping outside of the March to October period. (It’s still possible to find plenty else to do even when clouds obscure the mountains.) Snowdon visits between November and April also invariably entail walking across snow and ice, which should only be attempted by those with experience. Snowdon is best climbed between May and September. Every day is busy, so set off early and avoid school holidays to beat the crowds.
