Gwynfor "S1"  "S2" and "S6" Sherpa services are just "2" for any single journey to or from Pen-y-Pass

If you intend to travel further into Snowdonia or travelling beyond Pen-y-Pass you are advised to purchase
a 5 Snowdon Sherpa Day Ticket
from the driver of your first Sherpa (valid on all "S1"  "S2"  "S4"  "S6" and "S97" Sherpas)
or a Red Rover if you want to travel all Round Snowdon

  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

Single (also return tickets for most journeys) are available on all Shrepa
services,  however..............

with the exception of a some VERY short journeys
it is much cheaper to take advantage of the various day "Rover" tickets
- these provide far more flexibility as walkers/tourists in Snowdonia can
"change the mind" or drop off at any point and join a later "Sherpa"
just purchase your ticket from the driver of your first bus
and ensure you are given the appropriate cover for it

At the bottom of each page is an index which includes "suggested" days out
by the Sherpas - each page advises the most appropriate (rover) ticket - in
many cases using the 5 "Snowdon Sherpa" day ticket
(note - this does NOT cover the direct northern link (service "88") between
Llanberis and Caernarfon as it is a commercial service operated by Arriva

If you want full flexibility, then obtain a "Red Rover" instead - see below


 6.80 for a "Red Rover" - this not only includes the direct link between Caernarfon and Llanberis enabling you to travel right round Snowdon
but it is also valid for travel to and from the "Sherpa network" from
anywhere in Gwynedd (as well as Anglesey and Llandudno)
including all the Cambrian Coast resorts as far south as Aberystwyth

ALL drivers of all bus companies can of course issue the "6.80 RED Rover Tickets"
(although some may need a little gentle persuasion !)

If you initially book on an Arriva or Llew Jones bus,  MAKE SURE
you do NOT simply ask for a "day" ticket or you may "accidentally" be sold a slightly cheaper "Arriva" (ONLY) day ticket or a "Llew Jones (ONLY) day ticket"
(these are both excellent tickets in their own right, BUT they are NOT VALID on
any other operators services - including ALL Snowdon Sherpa journeys

A "Red Rover" day ticket also has the advantage you can change your
travel plans as you go along and it also gives you the flexibitily
to return home later by a different route if required

If travelling from further afield the combined Zonal "North Wales Day Rover" (main-line rail and bus) will usually be your most economical travel ticket to and around Snowdonia
For the purpose of this ticket, North Wales is divided into several "zones" and you can select which ones you want to cover your planned day out........
