Everyone loves Beddgelert and its enviable location and where you can learn about an epic Welsh legend - Gelert

The picturesque stone-built village is the ideal base for exploring all the classic sights and beauty spots – Aberglaslyn Pass to the south, Nant Gwynant to the east, Snowdon to the north. 

Lôn Gwyrfai is a multi-use recreational path created especially for walkers, cyclists and horse riders. The route stretches 4½ miles between the villages of Beddgelert and Rhyd Ddu. Parts of Lôn Gwyrfai have even wide surfaces suitable for some powered Tramper type vehicles or power-assisted wheelchairs. Rhyd Ddu is a great starting point for a walk to the summit of Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon). 

A small and friendly village that boasts a full range of quality amenities including hotels, great guesthouses, B&B and self-catering accommodation, campsites, glamping, bunk houses, shops, arts and crafts, award winning restaurants and traditional pubs.

Go underground at the Sygun Copper Mine, also close by. Copper was mined in these valleys as far back as Roman times. The village is also one of the stop-off points on the Welsh Highland Railway from Caernarfon to Porthmadog.
