Llanberis is a great base camp for our Mont Blanc & Matterhorn training weekends as it provides an inspiring location to explore the brilliant mountain walking, scrambling and rock climbing in Northern Snowdonia
It’s also a lively mountain village with plenty of accommodation, shops, restaurants, amenities and of course, the famous climbers cafe, Pete’s Eats, where our courses begin!
From The South Via the M1, M6 & M54 to Telford, Shrewsbury and then the A5, A483 towards Wrexham & Chester where you can pick up A55 – North Wales coast road towards Conwy and Bangor. Take the first Bangor turn-off then follow signs to Llanberis.
Another option is to follow the slower but much more scenic route along the A5 all the way to Capel Curig, from where you follow signs to Llanberis.
From The North Take the M6, M56 towards Chester and North Wales, then as above via the Bangor turnoff on the A55.
