If you have a thirst for nature in a country filled with idyllic mountain ranges and untouched shores, then visit the great plains of North Wales.
Home to the legendary red dragon, the Welsh landscape paints a reflection of the strength and beauty shown by this infamous creature â€“ from its luscious valleys to its crystal-clear waters. Considered by many to be the gem of the United Kingdom, come see for yourself the treasures of the Welsh landscape.
Take on the mighty challenge of Snowdon
Immerse yourself in the fresh country air and rich heritage of Wales, and explore its highest mountain: Snowdon. The highest point in the British Isles outside of Scotland, at 3,560 ft its impressive terrain attracts thousands far and wide to take on its rugged peak.
For avid hikers, strap on your walking boots and take a stroll to the Snowdonia National Park up Llanberis Path â€“ running parallel to the Snowdon Mountain Railway and the demanding Miner and Pygâ€™s tracks. Alternatively, follow the coast and lower mountain slopes between Prestatyn and Bangor, where nature-lovers will truly appreciate the awe-inspiring scenery of Aber Falls and the Druidâ€™s Circle.
If youâ€™re armed with two wheels then biking down Snowdon is guaranteed to be an unforgettable experience! Cyclists can either take the easygoing route of Llanberis Path, or for tougher conditions, the renowned Snowdon Ranger path. And with a voluntary riding ban enforced from the beginning of May until the end of September, mountain biking in October provides the perfect excuse! With the paths clear from hikers, this is the ideal opportunity to hit the hills as you pedal your way across the mountain course.
