Why Hire a Camper Van for the Trip?
You might be wondering, “why should I hire a motorhome and not just stay in a hotel?” While staying in a hotel is a fine choice, and many do choose this option, it is much more flexible to stay in a camper van or motorhome, which is essentially a hotel on wheels.
You will still be comfortable and have all the amenities you require, but you can pick up and relocate whenever you wish. This makes exploring such a vast area much easier as you won’t be restricted to the area your hotel is in.
You can drive your motorhome or camper van across Snowdonia National Park, staying in the many camping areas set up for this. You can stay one night or more, explore everything the local area has to offer, and then move on to the next spot. This way, you get to explore much more of Snowdonia than you might have been able to when staying in a hotel.
