The A4026 runs through the village and along the banks of the Llyn Padarn and Llyn Peris, forming the Llanberis Pass, a stretch of glistening water cutting through the mountain range. As you explore the charming village centre, you'll notice several striking historical landmarks, including the graceful St Padarn's Church and the chapel of Capel Coch. Llanberis hosts an impressive calendar of events for a small village, including the excellent Llanberis Film Festival every February. If you're in the area in July, don't miss the Snowdon Race, when endurance runners tackle a gruelling ten-mile route from the village centre to the top of the mountain. For a pint after a day's exploring, head to the Heights, an atmospheric inn serving real ales and a variety of hearty pub meals.

Llanberis holiday cottages are ideally located for making the trek to the summit of Wales's highest mountain. Starting in the village, the Llanberis Path is the longest route to the top but also the least strenuous. If you don't fancy the walk, there's always the Snowdon Mountain Railway, which offers a comfortable ascent with breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside. A visit to Electric Mountain, a massive hydroelectric power station built into the rock, is also a must.
