  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

It is still possible to make a day or afternoon trip from
Beddgelert to Betws-y-Coed

(Alternatively use the Sherpa buses to reach and climb up or ride round Snowdon in either direction)


LATEST..........
There is now a limited direct "S4" Sunday Sherpa service to Caernarfon
via Rhyd Ddu and Waunfawr

The level of onward "S2" Sherpas from Pen-y-Pass
to Llanberis and Betws-y-Coed is again reduced to five
journeys each way for the winter


Suggested timings are shown below and all the trips featured can all be done for just 6.80 using a "Red Rover"
(Purchase from the driver of your first bus)


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 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

Sundays - 11th November 2018 until further notice
