15 things to do in Snowdonia

North Wales’s craggy peaks and lonely lakes are a tonic at any time of year, but they’re loveliest in spring: dainty wildflowers carpet the woodlands, waterfalls thunder and the grass glows on sunny days. Half a million people climb Mount Snowdon every year, but it’s easy to escape the crowds in Wales’s oldest national park and walks range from soothing ambles to tough hill trails. If hiking isn’t your thing, there’s also mountain biking, paddleboarding, gorge-scrambling, kayaking, caving and whizzing down record-breaking zip lines. When it pours (there’s a reason these hills are so green), take cover in quirky cafés and cosy pubs. RECOMMENDED: Discover nearby Cardiff, Birmingham and Liverpool or more dramatic landscapes in the Lake District
