Useful Links

Snowdonia is a small place that feels much bigger. There are dozens of places to explore and discover, and a lot of organisations working together to keep visitors and inhabitants safe, fed and informed. Here are a few useful links – they all open in a new window, and we are not responsible for the content of external websites:

Weather Information

Because Snowdonia is a mountainous region on the coast it is prone to sudden changes in weather. To help plan our trips we use a variety of weather forecasts to decide what the weather will do and where we should go. But no matter what the forecast, always ensure you carry appropriate equipment and clothing.
