About

Snaefell is the highest mountain and the only summitt higher than 2,000 feet on the Isle of Man at 2,034 feet above sea level. 

On a clear day six kingdoms can be seen from the top of Snaefell: Isle of Man, England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales and Heaven. 

At the top of the summit there is a cafe which offers refreshments and a regular tram service operates to the summit of Snaefell from Laxey during the summer months. 

Snaefell is also a popular walking spot with walkers walking upto the summit either from Laxey or the Bungalow Tram Station where there is car parking available and special walking equipment is not required.
