Where is it? Yr Wyddfa, Snowdonia National Park
What is it? Only the highest mountain in all of Wales
Why go? The beating heart of Snowdonia National Park, Yr Wyddfa thrusts itself 1,085 metres into the sky, making it the highest peak in Wales and the third highest in the UK. Conquering the peak sits somewhere in between a doddle and a real challenge, although underestimate this hike at your peril. It takes anywhere between five to seven hours to climb, although the less adventurous can always take the scenic one-hour train ride to the top of Wales.
