About Yr Wyddfa

North Wales is a land of mountains, rivers, lakes and crags and within it the old kingdom of Gwynedd is the jewel in the crown, known in Welsh as ‘Eryri’ and in English as ‘Snowdonia’.

The Snowdonia National Park has 15 mountains that sit over 3000 feet and Snowdon (‘Yr Wyddfa’ meaning burial mound in Welsh) sits as the chieftain of them all.
