Listen as the lilting rhythms of an ancient language fill the air and see flags bearing the Welsh dragon flutter above fairytale castles…

Hiking in Snowdonia, Wales


For a place with such exciting landscapes – from snow-capped peaks to wild coastline – Wales is compact and neighbourly. Come to switch off, and explore untouched valleys and sleepy villages. Or come to enjoy raring-to-go towns and the capital Cardiff – voted Britain’s most sociable city.

2019 is Wales’ Year of Discovery, inviting you to explore the country and find its bountiful treasures. Delve into Wales’ epic heritage with more than 600 castles to explore. Follow the North Wales Way taking in the magnificent Beaumaris, Caernarfon and Harlech castles – all World Heritage Sites. Trek along the breathtaking Cambrian Way winding through Snowdonia and the Brecon Beacons. Uncover the inspiration to Dylan Thomas’ soul-stirring poetry in Laugharne or feast your eyes on one of the best impressionist collections in Europe at the National Museum Wales.


From London, you can be here in just over 2 hours, and you can reach north- and mid-Wales easily from Manchester, Liverpool or Birmingham by road or rail. Then all the adventure you could wish for, in this enchanting Celtic land, is yours...
