Home to the largest mountain in Wales, Snowdonia boasts breath-taking scenery: whether you choose to sample mouth-watering Bara brith at a local market, or explore the National Park, Snowdon provides a striking backdrop. If you’re travelling with budding mountaineers (with little feet) the Llanberis Track is a safe route that snakes round the glassy lakes of Llyn Glaslyn and Llyn Lydaw, up to Snowdon’s summit. Follow the footsteps of King Arthur, or travel in style on the famous Mountain Railway – just to remember to pack a flask and some Welsh cakes! For a smoother stroll, the village of Betws y Coed sits on the edge of Snowdonia with a spectacular waterfall, Swallow Falls. The neighbouring Beddgelert, with its gorgeous scenery said to have inspired the Rupert Bear stories, is a perfect stop-off on a bike ride. For an enchanted experience, Penrhyn Castle’s fairy-tale turrets and magical grounds is a fitting setting for craft workshops, art exhibitions and family picnics.
