So you’ve decided on North Wales for your next holiday adventure, whats next? Well, you can choose from island life on Anglesey, exploring the Llyn Peninsula or summer fun in Snowdonia. We think you should give Snowdonia a chance to show off what it has to offer.
What springs to mind when you think of Snowdonia? Summits, peaks and walking boots perhaps? Well, there is so much more to Snowdonia than its incredible mountain scenery (although obviously, it is a massive part of the area’s charm!) There is plenty to keep the whole family occupied all year long.
Gentle walks or ‘get the heart race pumping’ hikes; activities for adrenalin junkies or leisurely afternoons spent with a picnic by a lake – take your pick, Snowdonia has something to suit everyone!
For the adrenaline junkies amongst you, why not plan a trip to Zipworld. Challenge yourself on adventures like Velocity – the fastest zip wire in the world, Zip Safari – a stunning fforest site or Bounce Below – an entire underground trampoline experience.
Snowdonia is home to several lakes that are perfect for all sorts of activities including gorge scrambling, kayaking, paddle boarding and coasteering. Llyn Geirionydd and Llyn Tegid are some of our favourite lakes for getting active on the water.
Whatever your cycling experience, Snowdonia offers visitors a range of exceptionally beautiful routes to enjoy from a bike. From steep hills and mountain paths to long-distance trails through enchanting woodland or shorter roads along the coast, there’s no denying Snoadonia’s show-stopping scenery.
See Snowdonia from the saddle. Again, whether you are a complete beginner or competent rider – there are lots of riding stables based in North Wales that provide a range of options for you. Join in on group pony trekking and full day mountain rides or simply visit the stables to learn all about horse care.
A trip to Snowdonia wouldn’t be complete without walking up Snowdon – the highest mountain in England and Wales. Aside from Snowdon, Welsh 3000s are a group of 15 peaks in Snowdonia that all have an ascent above 3000 ft. For a challenge, walk up Y Garn via Devil’s Kitchen or dare to complete Crib Goch, which is often referred to as a ‘knife-edged’ arête. There are also many family-friendly walking routes in North Wales, view our post about them here.
With amazing activities, enough fun-filled day trips to last a year, along with coastline and countryside to explore, mountains to trek or boats to ride. Snowdonia always delivers whether it be golf, fishing or just relaxing on a beach; you can do it all!
