Hill Walking in North WalesThe Glan Dwr Mountain Lodge at Capel Curig, North Wales is perfect bunk house accommodation for visitors keen on hill walking. The village of Capel Curigis renowned for it's association with the hill walking and mountaineering fraternity and is indeed a base for many visitors to the mountains of Snowdonia. A walk from the village in a north westerly direction leads you to the Carneddau range of mountains, including Pen Llithrig y Wrach, Carnedd Dafydd, Carnedd Llywelyn, and the lakes of Llyn Cowlyd, and Llyn Eigiau.

If you don’t fancy the high mountains then you can head north west out of the village and walk the pleasant trails past the lesser hills of Craig Wen, Creigiau Gleision, and the Crimpiau, en-route to the beautiful lakes of Llyn Crafnant and Llyn Geirionydd.
Head due south out of the village and you are immediately on the lower slopes of Moel Siabod with the option to take the trail to the summit of Siabod or do a bit of valley hopping and follow the ancient tracks over the hill and far away (well it’s not that far) to the beautiful Lledr Valley and the village of Dolwyddelan.
Closer to Capel, indeed on the very edge of the village there are delightful walks around the twin lakes of Llynnau Mymbyr, with views of Mount Snowdon and the Snowdon “horse-shoe” that are unsurpassed.
Or cross the wooden bridge at Plas-y-Brenin and stroll along the tree lined banks of the Afon Llugwy as it tumbles toward the Conwy River at Betws-y-Coed. But these are just the local walks. Jump on a Sherpa bus and within ten minutes you will be in the Pass of Llanberis from where you may treck to the top of Mount Snowdon itself or venture over the Glyders and return via the Ogwen Valley.
