Itinerary

Description

Experience the drama of the rugged landscapes of North Wales on this brilliant three-day break where we enjoy the lovely atmosphere of Llandudno and a rack railway journey up Mount Snowdon! Known as the ‘Queen of the Welsh Resorts’, Llandudno provides the perfect base for our trip offering the opportunity for us to enjoy the seaside ambience. We also travel on the Snowdon Mountain Railway for an incredibly scenic journey taking in spectacular views across the valleys along the way. There’s also time to explore picturesque Betws-y-Coed on the edge of Snowdonia National Park.

Itinerary

Day 1

From a morning pickup in your local area we travel by coach to Llandudno where we spend time at leisure. Llandudno is famed for its golden beach flanked by two headlands, the Great and Little Ormes. From the Victorian Llandudno pier to the Victoria shopping centre, there is plenty to do here. Later we check in to our hotel in the resort.

Day 2 - Snowdon Mountain Railway & Betws-y-Coed (full day)

We head to Llanberis for the highlight of our trip, a journey on the Snowdon Mountain Railway. This delightful rack railway journey has been operating since 1896, thrilling passengers with the incredible sight of the Ceunant Mawr waterfall cascading into the gorge below and the breathtaking vistas over the sheer edge of Rocky Valley.

 

We then have some free time in the picturesque village of Betws-y-Coed, known as the Gateway to Snowdonia National Park and where the backdrop of coniferous forests has earned this area the name ‘Little Switzerland’.

 

Please note: on April departures, the railway will not travel to the summit of the mountain and instead will terminate at Clogwyn Station.

 

Day 3

After checking out of our hotel, we spend some more time at leisure in Llandudno to complete this wonderful break, before we make our way home in the early afternoon.
