North Wales & Snowdonia

Stunning mountain scenery, glorious beaches and historic castles, there’s so much to see and do whilst staying at one of our caravan parks or holiday parks in North Wales and Snowdonia. Read More...

Here’s our guide to the Top Ten Things To Do whilst on one of our caravan holidays in Snowdonia or across North Wales.

1. Climb Snowdon
At 3,650 feet (1085 metres) Snowdon is the highest peak in England and Wales. There are several routes to its summit from the popular and straightforward Pyg Track and Llanberis Path to the more challenging Watkin Path and Crib Goch route. The most celebrated route is the Snowdon Horseshoe which takes in all the major peaks of the Snowdon massif. For those wanting to take it a bit easier there is a train which takes visitors to the summit. As a result, the summit can be busy in summer. If you want to get off the beaten track there are some fantastic walks in the surrounding countryside.

2. Visit a Mediterranean village on the Welsh coast
Portmeirion was built in the 1920s by architect Clough Williams-Ellis and it represents his fantasy of a classical Italianate village in the Mediterranean, transplanted to a peninsula on an estuary on Wales’ northwest coast. Here you will find pastel-painted buildings with shuttered windows, a grand piazza, and surrounding woods and gardens filled with exotic plants. Portmeirion came to prominence when it was used as the set for cult Sixties TV series The Prisoner.

3. Step back in history to a World Heritage Site
The finest castles in Wales, in a land full of them, can be found in a small area of North Wales. Indeed, the castles of Beaumaris, Caernarfon, Conwy, and Harlech have been classified as a World Heritage Site. Built in the 13th century by King Edward I of England they are all impressive, well preserved and great examples of military architecture. Beaumaris, overlooking the Menai Strait, is the largest. Caernarfon Castle also overlooks the Menai Strait and is the scene of many important ceremonial events. Conway Castle offers dramatic views across the Conway estuary and Harlech Castle was the scene of the siege which inspired the song Men of Harlech, sung by Welsh people across the world.

4. Go coasteering on the Llyn Peninsula
Coasteering is a unique adventure sport for adrenaline-seekers where you experience the exhilaration of rock climbing, cliff jumping and swimming into sea caves. It takes place on rocky shorelines, such as the wild, rugged shore of the Llyn peninsula, and involves scrambling and clambering over coastal ledges and boulders, and leaping into the sea to swim to the next bit of the route.

5. Walk across the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct
Just outside Llangollen lies the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, the world’s tallest canal-boat bridge, and World Heritage Site. Built by Thomas Telford it carries the Llangollen Canal over the River Dee, more than 100 feet above the valley. A popular short walk takes you along the canal towpath from Froncysyllte, across the aqueduct, to the canal basin full of colourful narrow boats at Trevor.

6. Discover a Bronze Age copper mine
The Great Orme is one of North Wales’ most distinctive landmarks, an isolated promontory overlooking Llandudno, and the only Bronze Age copper mine open to the public in the world. Over four miles of tunnels, including huge hall-sized spaces dating back 4000, years have been found with visitors able to explore a small part of this vast Prehistoric mining complex.

7. All aboard a steam train
The Great Little Trains of Wales are a very special way of seeing some of the best scenery in Wales. There are ten narrow-gauge steam railways across the country, all of them have in common the charm of old-time steam trains with plenty of polished paintwork and brass. The Ffestiniog Railway is the oldest independent railway company running from the slate quarries of Blaenau Ffestiniog down to the harbour at Porthmadog. The Snowdon Mountain Railway is the only public rack and pinion railway in the UK and has been taking passengers to the top of Snowdon for over 100 years. Spectacular views open up as the train climbs the highest mountain in England and Wales.

8. Go white-water rafting
The National White-Water Centre on the River Tryweryn, near Bala, offers a truly wild mountain river experience in the heart of Snowdonia. On offer is a huge array of heart-pumping white-water activities which will test your nerve and leave you thoroughly soaked! The Tryweryn is a dam-released river, so water often thunders down its rapids while other rivers are dry, producing year-round white water, in a breath-taking natural environment.

9. Head deep underground in a slate mine
Blaenau Ffestiniog is the former ‘slate capital of Wales’ with a strange, compelling beauty. Screes of broken slate tumble down steep-sided mountains, mixing with Snowdonia’s natural grandeur. You can glimpse into Blaenau’s unique history at the Llechwedd Slate Caverns, which are still being worked to this day. Tours take you deep underground to explore the world of the Victorian slate miner from the ‘town that roofed the world’.

10. Go mountain biking in Snowdonia
There is a great range of mountain biking in Snowdonia. The Betws y Coed area offers numerous routes including the Gwydir Forest Trails and the Penmachno Trail. Gwydir Forest has something for all levels. Amongst the most challenging is the 18-mile Marin. The Penmachno Trail is best suited for experienced bikers. It takes you along an 18-mile, scenic route amongst mountains and country tracks.
