2018 - Royal Victoria Llanberis - 5 Days (AUD0179)
Where to start? Llanberis is packed with enough attractions to keep visitors busy for weeks. But first, there’s the lakeside location at the foot of Snowdon. When you’re tired of walking beside the water why not take a ride on two narrow-gauge lines, the Llanberis Lake Railway and Snowdon Mountain Railway. The latter climbs almost to the doorstep of the stunning Hafod Eryri Visitor Centre. The National Slate Museum recalls Snowdonia’s rich industrial heritage. The Electric Mountain invites you into its awesome high-tech underground world.
Meanwhile, Dolbadarn Castle takes you back a thousand years to the time of the native Welsh princes. If that isn’t enough there are craft shops and watersports too, though most outdoor fans come for the walking. Snowdonia, the mountainous heart of southern Britain, is one of the UK’s most popular destinations for hiking and outdoor holidays. Yet, there’s more to this region than craters and crags. It’s blessed with some of the most beautiful coastal scenery in Wales on the Llŷn Peninsula and Cambrian Coastline. Plus its reputation for fine dining using Welsh meat, fish, and cheese is growing all the time.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.

Welsh Slate Museum
The National Welsh Slate Museum is located at Gilfach DDu in the 19th Century workshops of the now disused Dinorwic slate quarry. Travel into the past of an industry and a way of life that has chiselled itself into the very being of Wales.
Gwynedd’s county town of Caernarfon is home to Wales’s most famous castle, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Mighty Caernarfon Castle commands the lion’s share of attention, but the town’s narrow streets and stylishly redeveloped waterfront also merit a visit. The castle, built in the 13th century by Edward I as a royal palace and military fortress, was at the core of a medieval walled town. The Romans left their mark too – 1000 years earlier they constructed their fort of Segontium on the hill above (its foundations still exist).
