Itinerary

Day 1

Morning departure from your local pickup point, we make our way to Caernarfon arriving at the hotel mid afternoon.

Day 2

At leisure in Caernarfon. The medieval town is home to one of Wales’s most popular castles – a 13th century fortress overlooking the town’s narrow streets and stylish waterfront, all of which can be reached within a few minutes walk from the hotel.

Day 3

We head to Anglesey and the beautifully historic town of Beaumaris where we enjoy an 80 minute Puffin Island cruise. Located at the NE entrance of the Menai Strait this little island hosts an abundance of wildlife including Atlantic grey seals, resident coastal birds and visiting sea birds. The puffins are likely to be only seen on our April tour when they nest on the island. After the cruise we have some free time in Beaumaris then we continue on to Llanfair PG, a small village with a long name, for a short stop before returning to the hotel.

Puffin Island Cruise

The island is steeped in history with the monastic ruins of St Seiriol and the old semaphore station to be seen, you will also pass the lighthouse at Penmon Point. Puffin Island is now a bird sanctuary and a nesting site for many species of breeding seabirds. The main season is between April and July when you are likely to see common guillemots, razorbills, kittiwakes and of course puffins but as with all seabirds outside of the breeding season they are only found out at sea (you will not see puffins on these cruises outside of the breeding season).

Day 4

Today we head into the heart of Snowdonia and enjoy a journey on the Llanberis Lake Railway. The little steam engine takes us on a five-mile return journey alongside Lake Padarn. Afterwards we visit the National Slate Museum. Explore the history of slate, the traditional craft of the quarryman, in authentic workshops with an array of talks and demonstrations.

Day 5

After a leisurely breakfast, rejoin the coach for the return journey home.
