Get active and adventurous in the Snowdonia National Park with a stay at YHA Snowdon Llanberis. Whether you’re tackling the route up to Snowdon en masse, or want to burn off some steam with outdoor activities, this cosy base is ideal for groups. There’s a private meeting room for studying or planning your next route, and you can access free Wi-Fi in our renovated social areas.

If you need refreshing after your day in the mountains, we’ve got a fully licensed bar with local beers available. Hungry schools and ramblers will also find group catering including breakfast, packed lunch and evening meal. Our location is surrounded by fields, mountains and the odd sheep or two.

YHA Snowdon Llanberis is perfect for walking groups – you can take the trail up Snowdon or head to the waterfalls, forests and valleys of the National Park. There’s even pony trekking and abseiling nearby, so groups can really turn on the adrenaline. But we’re not just about activities; groups can explore attractions like Electric Mountain, the National Slate Museum or Llanberis village itself.
