  B E W A R E ....................... !!!
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

 
REMEMBER.............!
The summer only Saturday/Sunday "S6" Sherpa
service between Bangor/Bethesda and Betws-y-Coed
via Llyn Ogwen and Capel Curig
is withdrawn for the winter


This leaves only the very limited weekday commuter "6B" service
to/from Bangor along the Ogwen Valley

(alternatively use the "S2" Sherpa as far as Capel Curig)
 

This "unofficial" website attempts to show what is still available
and to encourage greater use includes some suggested
"trips round Snowdonia - without your car"
