Visitors staying at YHA (Youth Hostels Association) hostels in Eryri are in for an even more enriching experience, thanks to the recent installation of new interpretation boards at their key locations including YHA Pen y Pass, Llanberis, Rhyd-Ddu, Cwm Idwal, Conwy, and Rowen.

Funded through the Eryri Communities Fund, these boards offer valuable insights into the area’s culture, history, language, and diverse wildlife, enhancing the understanding of those who explore the region.

One notable feature of these boards is their provision of information about the Welsh language, offering translations of essential terms commonly encountered in the area. This initiative reflects a commitment to promoting linguistic diversity and fostering an appreciation of the Welsh language among visitors.

As well as its cultural significance, Eryri has a diverse and wild landscape that is rich in unique flora and fauna. The interpretation boards shed light on the ecological significance of the Park, showcasing the habitats and species that thrive within its boundaries.

The installation of these interpretation boards aligns perfectly with the YHA’s mission of providing immersive experiences for visitors while contributing to local communities.

Whether embarking on a hike up one of Eryri’s peaks or simply soaking in the breath-taking scenery, visitors can deepen their connection to this extraordinary landscape, thanks to the informative resources available at YHA hostels throughout the region.

These boards stand as a testament to the collaborative efforts of the Eryri Communities Fund and the YHA in promoting education, cultural awareness, and environmental stewardship within the Eryri National Park.
