Snowdonia - North Wales

Snowdonia located wholly within the region of North Wales and is a mountainous region and a national park of 823 square miles (2,130 km2) in area and contains the highest mountain peaks in the United Kingdom outside of Scotland. These mountains provide the most dramatic and alluring of all Welsh scenery, a compact, barren land of tortured ridges dividing glacial valleys, whose sheer faces belie the fact that the tallest peaks only just top 3000ft.
