From the ocean to the peaks, throughout the same weekend you and your family will become at one with Wales’ famous lush green nature, dominating mountains, fairytale-like castles, sweeping coasts and charming traditional villages, with ample time to sample the delicious traditional treats and meals that Wales has become well-known for.

  • Rest: relax in Llandudno, a peaceful seaside town, crowned by the majestic Great Orme mountain.
  • Tour: Warm-up early in the morning with a pleasant walk to Aber Falls, a 40m waterfall flowing over a sill of volcanic rock in the foothills of the Carneddau Range.

You can arrive at any time to our accommodation in Llandudno, although we recommend an early start to get parked up and enjoy your first introductions to this peaceful seaside town. You will stay over at the Whitehouse Hotel on Llandudno’s seafront, the perfect spot to enjoy awe-inspiring views over the bay. The first day will conclude with an evening welcome dinner, where you will have the opportunity to meet your fellow adventurers.   

Today will be a long and rewarding day full of activities and exciting experiences. Early in the morning, straight after breakfast, you will begin your trip into Snowdonia, the largest National Park in Wales. Along the way, you can lose yourself on the winding roads that hug the mountain as you leave the coast and go deeper into the famous Welsh mountain ranges. Your first contact with the astonishing nature of Snowdonia will be at Aber Falls, where you will warm up with a 1-hour trek to the impressive 40m-high waterfalls. After that, you will go on a 40-min road trip deep into the park until the Glyderau range, the location for our second trek. This is a little more challenging but still a pleasant trek of around 2 hours among the lakes and peaks of the area. There will be enough time to stop for a picnic, in order to relax and enjoy amazing views over the valley. After such an adventure a well deserved rest will be had in Caernarfon, an old royal town on the Menai Strait. Don’t miss the opportunity to see the medieval castle at sunset, boasting an impressive curtain wall of nine polygonal towers and historical tales. Perfectly finishing off your day, you and your family will settle down and sample an authentic Welsh dinner at an old traditional tavern, before heading back to Llandudno. 

Breakfast will be served at the Whitehouse Hotel on the final day. If you are not in a rush to leave, Llandudno is the perfect place to relax after such an exciting weekend. The Whitehouse hotel is just around 5 minutes’ walk from the Great Orme Tramway, an old cable-hauled tram that can take you to just below the summit of the Great Orme headland, where views over the Irish sea and the West shore beach will take your breath away. Alternatively, you can take a stroll on the lively two-mile-long promenade, a staple of any stay in Llandudno Bay.

We also highly recommend a stop at Conwy Castle, a magnificent medieval fortress home to tales and legends from over 700 years ago, still towering over the town today.
