Snowdonia National Park boasts vast areas of natural beauty and unique scenery.
The park, which covers 838 square miles, is one of the three natural parks found in Wales and the oldest one, being designated as one in 1951.
The landscape is breathtaking and unique. There are nine mountain ranges here and they cover over half of the national park’s surface. Some of the peaks reach over 3,000 feet.
DAY 1: After completing our local pick-up route we head towards Llanberis, with suitable lunch and refreshment stops en-route. Aiming to arrive at our hotel in suitable time to freshen up before dinner.
DAY 2: Today we board the Welsh Highland Railway for a 90-minute single journey from Caernarfon, past the foot of Snowdon and on to the picture postcard village of Beddgelert.
DAY 3: This morning it’s all aboard the Ffestiniog Railway, the world’s oldest narrow gauge railway with almost 200 years of history, taking you on a 13½-mile journey from the harbour in Porthmadog to the slate-quarrying town of Blaenau Ffestiniog. The historic trains climb over 700 feet from sea level into the mountains through tranquil pastures and magnificent forests, past lakes and waterfalls, round tight bends (even a complete spiral) clinging to the side of the mountain or tunnelling through it.
In the afternoon there is a one-hour guided tour of the colourful, charming and atmospheric village of Portmeirion. It was designed and built between 1925 and 1975 by Sir Clough Williams Ellis as a tribute to Mediterranean atmosphere and lifestyle. We will enjoy a delicious afternoon tea.
DAY 4: After some free time to explore the local area, we board the Llanberis Lake Railway in the afternoon for a 60-minute return trip from Gilfach Ddu. The journey takes you past the 13th century Dolbadarn Castle, across possibly Britain’s shortest river and past Llanberis’ twin lakes.
DAY 5: After breakfast, we make our way homeward with suitable lunch and refreshment stops en-route. Aiming to arrive back in Kent late afternoon.
