The Steam Train up Mt. Snowdon, Wales – Our #OMGB Moment

Mount Snowdon, Wales is one of the most scenic points in Great Britain. Take the historic steam train up to the summit or enjoy a 3 hour hike to the peak. It’s the highest point in all of Wales and offers incredible views of Snowdonia. At 10865 metres (3560 feet), Snowdon Mountain is a beautiful sight.

Mount Snowdon Steam Train

We had a short time in Wales, so we chose the option of taking the steam train up the mountain and had a fabulous time taking in the panoramic views of the Snowdonia Mountains. You only get about a half an hour at the top if you decide to take the train to the top, but you do have the option to walk down and spend as much time as you like.

Our hectic schedule only allowed for minimal time, so we had to take the train back down after our half hour was up. We envied the people sticking around to hike through Snowdonia. It was just a taste, but when we do go back to Great Britain, you can be sure we’ll book a few days in this land of paradise.
