  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

Why not climb up one path and return by another

All the BUS trips featured can all be done for just 6.80 using a
"Red Rover"

(gives you maximum flexibility in case you want to change your plans en-route #)


(# - If you plan to travel either way by TRAIN then purchase a "Two-Zone North Wales Day Ticket" instead)

Purchase ticket from the driver of your first bus

If the weather is bad or you find the going is too hard - turn back
and catch an earlier Sherpa home


LATEST..........
There are minor changes to the Conwy Valley connecting
"19" weekday and Sunday services
including a new 1840 journey from Betws-y-Coed
which connects off the last return "S2" Sherpa from Llanberis


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 sometimes 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



Snowdon Sherpa
