Snowdon Mountain Railroad

The Snowdon Mountain Railroad opened in April 1896 and is a narrow gauge rack and pinion railroad, which carries its passengers 4.7 miles (7.6km) up the highest mountain in England and Wales.

Our journey to the summit of Snowdon begins in Llanberis. As we leave the town behind us the train starts its climb, traveling past a spectacular waterfall and through ancient forest until we emerge into the wild, open countryside above the tree line. A quarter of the way up Snowdon we pass the small ruined chapel at Hebron before continuing to Halfway Station - so named because it is situated at the half way point - and then to Rocky Valley Halt.

Immediately after leaving Rocky Valley Halt the train travels along an exposed ridge, which offers breathtaking views of the Llanberis Pass and the volcanic rockface of Clogwyn du'r Arddu. Situated on the ridge is Clogwyn Station - our last stop before the summit.

Enjoy the wonderful panoramic views as we travel towards our destination - 'Hafod Eryri' - the new railroad terminus and visitor center, opened in June 2009. An award-winning structure of granite and glass, Hafod Eryri offers visitors refreshment facilities and an interpretation of the mountain and its history - but perhaps best of all are the views over the rugged Welsh landscape and, on very clear days, the Isle of Man and the Wicklow Mountains in Ireland.
