Snaefell Mountain

Snaefell Mountain

About

Snaefell is the Island’s only mountain. Its summit is 2,036ft above sea level.

On a clear day you can see seven Kingdoms from its top: The Isle of Man, England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and the Kingdoms of Neptune and Heaven!

During the summer months a regular electric tram service runs from the village of Laxey to the summit where there is a café serving refreshments.

The Bungalow tram station, halfway through the journey and where the line crosses the Mountain Road, is a popular starting point for walkers who want to reach the summit on foot, rather than by tram. There is plenty of car parking at the station.

Special walking equipment is not required for the ascent, though it is steep and caution is advised as the grass and rocks are often slippery.

Plan your trip to the top of Snaefell with the Snaefell Mountain Railway. Opening times, map, prices and what's nearby.
