We will arrive at Llanberis station to begin our adventurous journey. Llanberis in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park, to experience the awe inspiring journey by rack railway to ¾ of the way up to the top of Snowdon the highest mountain in Wales and England.
From the moment you leave the station your train will begin the journey upwards to the clouds, a journey experienced by some 12 million intrepid travellers since 1896. If you are lucky enough to have tickets on the “Snowdon Lily” your carriage will be pushed by one the original 1896 steam locomotives or by the diesel train and you will immediately begin to hear the noble engine exerting its effort as you climb upwards and on towards the roof of the principality. From the first glimpse of the waterfall in Llanberis to the point at which your train crests the mountain 45 minutes later you will have been surrounded by the views and the experience that is Eryri, the land of the Eagles.
The views from the train as you are carried along a ridge to the Summit are truly breath-taking. You will have one of the world’s most spectacular panoramas at your feet.
