Cadair Idris is a mountain in the Snowdonia National Park which is highly popular with walkers and hikers. Offering beautiful panoramic views of the breath-taking Snowdonia landscape, Cadair Idris is a more accessible peak to climb than the mighty Snowdon.

The Ynys-hir nature reserve mixes Welsh oak woodland with wet grassland and saltmarshes. In the spring, the ground is carpeted in flowers, and birdsong fills the air. You might see flycatchers and redstarts emerging from the nest boxes. Summer heralds the arrival of wading birds like lapwings and redshanks, in addition to a wide variety of butterflies. Then, in the colder months of the year, ducks and geese move in. No matter when you visit, there will always be something to marvel at in RSPB Ynys-Hir nature reserve.
