Wales - Snowdonia & the Llyn (PDF Chapter)
This is the Snowdonia & the Llŷn chapter from Lonely Planet’s Wales guidebook.

- climb Snowdonia’s second-most-famous peak, Cader Idris, a legendary haunt of giants
- float through the air across Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, a pinnacle of Georgian civil engineering
- test your claustrophobia in the gloomy slate caverns of Blaenau Ffestiniog
- restaurants & accommodation
