Your itinerary

Make your own way to Llandudno today, to meet us in this historic seaside town. Your Tour Manager will be waiting to greet you and help you settle into your hotel. Our base for the tour rests on the elegant promenade with glorious views across the bay. Unpack and relax in your lovely room, stretch your legs with a stroll along the waterfront or explore some of the many nearby attractions.

Once a small copper mining village, what's known today as the 'Queen of Welsh resorts' boasts two beautiful beaches backed by stately Victorian buildings. Take a walk on the longest pier in Wales, complete with shops, food stalls and arcade games. For a touch of magic, follow the Alice in Wonderland trail to discover the town's real-life connection with the famous work of fiction. For a snack before dinner, stop by one of many cafés, restaurants or pubs.

​Tonight, look forward to meeting your fellow travellers as we gather together for a welcome drink in the cosy bar before dinner.

Walk 13.5km/8.5 mi - 5 hrs (or 7.2km/4.5 mi - 5 hrs)

Pop your comfy walking shoes on for our first day of fresh air, panoramic views and exploration of the North Wales Path. Our adventure begins at medieval Conwy, the home of UNESCO-listed Conwy Castle, and we'll pass the smallest house in Britain on our way up Conwy Mountain. Lovely views greet us as we head through the rolling hills to Sychnant Pass.

At this point, you can choose to take a shorter walk back down the lush valley path, where you'll be met by the coach in St Gwynans for an afternoon of free time back in Conwy. Should you wish to trek on, we'll pass Maen Esgob and continue along the Wales Coast Path.

​Follow countryside lanes cross high moors, dotted with the occasional quaint cottage and historic stone walls. As we head towards Foel Lus, your reward becomes clear as incredible coastal views open before us. After enjoying the peaceful surrounds, picturesque views and that invigorating feeling of a long walk in the outdoors, we'll journey back down to St Gwynans. 

Walk 4.8km/3 mi - 2hrs & 5.6km/3.5 mi - 2.5hrs


Fuel up with a hearty breakfast this morning, for two wonderful walks to areas of astounding natural beauty. The first is a circular path through an upland environment that's world-famous for unique rock formations and rare plant life. In fact, Cwm Idwal was the first National Nature Reserve in Wales.
The area was sculpted by the Ice Age into jagged cliffs, ridges and the bowl-shaped hollow of Cwm Idwal itself, filled with the pristine water of Llyn Idwal Lake. Watch out for flora that survived the Ice Age, like purple saxifrage and the Snowdon lily. To complete the spectacular scene, Llyn Idwal rests on a backdrop of sheer, black cliffs known as 'The Devil's Kitchen'.
Next we drive to the lively mountain village of Betws-y-Coed. ​If you'd like to, you can take a break here to enjoy locally-sourced food in cafés, pubs and restaurants. You'll also find plenty of shops for gifts, outdoor gear, clothes and crafts, along with galleries featuring works from Welsh artists.
If your feet are itching for more action though, join us on our second walk. Llyn Elsi is a picturesque lake in the Gwydyr Forest above the village. From here, expect to snap frame-worthy photos of views across the Snowdonia National Park. 

Walk 8km/5 mi - 5 hrs or 7.3km/4.5 mi - 5 hrs

The pretty village of Beddgelert is famous for a legend starring Llywelyn the Great and his dog, Gelert, who is said to be buried nearby. However, there's much more to the town than myths, with its picturesque stone buildings bordered by mountainous vistas.

Today, you'll have the choice of two amazing walks. Follow the picturesque Glaslyn river and the lake of Llyn Dinas on the first, from Nant Gwynant to Beddgelert. We'll pass the Sygun Copper Mine, a Victorian-era excavation site, before free time to explore the town. Or, challenge yourself to the second walk to Aberglaslyn. It continues past Llyn Dinas to traverse trails with stunning views of the Cwm Bychan Valley. Serene woodlands and idyllic running streams accompany us to Aberglaslyn.

​Next, it's all aboard as we embark on an exciting journey on the Welsh Highland Railway. We'll travel in vintage carriages with steam engines whisking us through the spectacular scenery. Expect plenty of opportunities for photos while you're soaking up the romance of rail travel in the heart of nature. The train stops beneath the majestic walls of famous Caernarfon Castle, one of the most impressive structures of the Middle Ages. 

Enjoy a leisurely breakfast this morning, before checking out of the hotel. If you can't quite bear to leave yet, and you're not in a hurry to get home, there's nothing stopping you from popping over to the beach for delicious fish and chips by the sea! ​
