Llanberis is a village in North Wales, lying beside the Llyn Padarn lake in Snowdonia.

The village originally grew around the slate quarrying industry, but since the closure of the quarries the main employers have been tourism and the Dinorwig power station ,a pumped storage hydroelectric station. The ruins of Dolbadarn Castle, built by Llywelyn ap Iorwerth in the 13th century, stand above the village, famously painted by Richard Wilson (painter) and J.M.W. Turner.

Llanberis is a popular base for ascents of Snowdon (Yr Wyddfa in Welsh), the highest mountain in Wales. The Llanberis Path begins in the village, and although one of the longest routes, it is the most popular walking route to the summit, largely following the line of the Snowdon Mountain Railway

Other attractions in the village include the railway, the Welsh Slate Museum, the Llanberis Lake Railway and a country park. Tours of Dinorwig power station are available from a purpose built visitor centre.

Llanberis is also a centre for outdoor activities including walking, mountaineering, mountain biking, pony trekking and water sports. The Snowdon Race (Ras Yr Wyddfa), takes place during July, an international fell race to the summit of Snowdon returning to the village.

Llanberis is twinned with the Italian town of Morbegno in Lombardy.
