Info. Capel Curig in Snowdonia National Park, Wales, United Kingdom
Here on the west coast of Great Britain, we’re enjoying the views that surround the small village of Capel Curig in Snowdonia National Park. Renowned for its rugged and mountainous landscape, Snowdonia is the largest national park in Wales. It is home to over 26,000 people and even more sheep – the wooly farm animals outnumber people three to one in Wales.
Established in 1951 as the first national park in Wales, Snowdonia has nine mountain ranges that cover just over half the park’s 2,130 square kilometres. Its most popular peak is Snowdon (Yr Wyddfa in Welsh), the tallest mountain in Wales and England, which you can see in the background of our photo.
