Snowdonia National Park Authority
The Snowdonia National Park Authority is the organisation tasked with caring for the Snowdonia National Park. Dominated by impressive mountain ranges, Snowdonia is a place to discover picturesque villages, steep river gorges and waterfalls and a coastline of fine sandy beaches. The Snowdonia National Park covers 823 square miles of diverse landscapes and is a living, working area, home to over 26,000 people. As well as being the largest National Park in Wales, Snowdonia is home to Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales, Llyn Tegid, the largest natural lake in Wales and a wealth of wildlife. Snowdonia is an area steeped in culture and local history, where more than half its population speak Welsh.
Snowdonia attracts thousands of visitors each year who enjoy its amazing landscapes and the wealth of outdoor activities on offer. The National Park Authority’s aims are to conserve and enhance the natural beauty, wildlife and cultural heritage of the area; promote opportunities to understand and enjoy its special qualities; and to foster the economic and social wellbeing of its communities.
