The Snowdon Sherpa (or Sherpa’r Wyddfa) is a unique bus service that travels around the foot of Snowdon creating an essential link between the six main Snowdon footpaths as well as the main car parks, villages and tourist attractions in the area. It’s an ideal service for walkers and climbers who intend to start their journey from one point and finish at another or for anyone who simply wishes to travel around Snowdonia leaving the car at home.

All Snowdon Sherpa journeys are operated by ‘low floor’ buses with ramps and wheelchair spaces to ensure that the stops provided with raised kerbs are served by accessible vehicles.

Tickets are bought on the bus and contactless payment is accepted. Tickets cost just £2 for an adult single or £3 for an adult return (£1 for a child single and £1.50 for a child return) with a Snowdon Sherpa ‘hop on hop off’ day ticket costing £5 for adults and £2.50 for children. Dogs are welcome on all Snowdon Sherpa services.

The most popular services are the S1, S2 and S5 that run between Llanberis and Pen-y-Pass (click each service to view the full timetable):

Other services run further afield covering the rest of the national park and beyond:
