Snowdonia National Park
Llanberis
Snowdonia takes its name from Mount Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales, and sometimes called the "place of eagles." There haven't been golden eagles on Mount Snowdon for 300 hundred years, but you might see peregrine falcons. Ride the Snowdon Mountain Railway to the top of Snowdon mountain. Even in summer it can be cold at the summit station, so bring sweaters. Check out the Railway site for timetables.

Take the Llanberis Lake Railway steam train along the shores of the Lake Padarn (Llyn Padarn). For train schedules, check out the Llanberis Lake Railway.
Visit the Welsh Slate Museum, housed in old Victorian workshops where kids can see live slate-splitting demonstrations, an iron and brass foundry, waterpowered machinery and forges.
Llyn Padarn Country Park has nature trails, picnic sites and an old slate quarry.
