Rising up above the Welsh towns of Abergavenny in the southeast, Llangors in the west and Hay-on-Wye to the north, the Black Mountains emerge from the Brecon Beacons National Park in South Wales. The area is a popular choice for visitors looking to experience the true beauty of the Welsh countryside. Rolling green, yellow, red and orange hills dominate this landscape and give rise to some excellent hiking trails. There is also a number of challenging cycling routes, perfect for intermediate to expert mountain bikers.
Snowdon (Yr Wyddfa in Welsh) is the highest mountain in Wales and England. At just over 1000 meters and with a number of great routes to the summit, Snowdon makes for an excellent hiking adventure. Standing tall over the village of Llanberis, the summit of Snowdon offers spectacular views of the surrounding area, such as Snowdonia, Anglesey, Pembrokeshire and even Ireland to the west. Summiteers can enjoy a warm drink away from the cold of the mountain-top in the visitor centre café, which offers stunning, panoramic views of North Wales.
