Mount Snowdon, Wales, UK. Snowdon is the highest mountain in Wales, at an elevation of 1,085 metres above sea level, and the highest point in the British Isles outside the Scottish Highlands. It is located in Snowdonia National Park in Gwynedd, and has been described as "probably the busiest mountain in Britain".

Take the beautiful Snowdonia National Park, throw in a couple of adrenalin pumping activities and what do you get?
