Car Parking in Snowdonia is very limited and can be expensive if a space can be found

The alternative is to leave your car behind and use the
Snowdon Sherpa Bus network

It is still possible to make a day or afternoon trip from
Beddgelert to Betws-y-Coed
 (change Sherpas at Pen-y-Pass)
(Alternatively use the Sherpa buses to reach and climb up or ride round Snowdon in either direction)


Suggested timings are shown below and all the trips featured can all be done for just 6.80 using a "Red Rover"
(Purchase from the driver of your first bus)


This "unofficial" website attempts to show what services are available
It contains composite timetables of connecting services on a cross-Snowdonia route basis
where a change of bus is necessary --- hopefully it will help you plan your days out
It also includes some suggested "trips round Snowdonia - without your car"
You can click on any underlined location to go direct to the appropriate timetable
