This mostly panoramic tour gives you a nice overview of the Welsh countryside and Snowdonia while including time for photos at some points of interest along the way.

You will begin by first traveling through Anglesey to cross the Menai Strait and then on to Caernarfon with its famous castle that dates back to 1283. It was here that the heir to the British thrown, Prince Charles, was crowned Prince of Wales in 1969. A stop for photos of this once impregnable castle is made before continuing inland towards the magnificent landscapes of the Snowdonia National Park. This incredible park boasts some of the most amazing scenery to be found anywhere in Wales and is a visual delight.

As you travel deep into the Park, there will be a short stop for photographs at Llanberis, which rests beside the Llyn Padarn Lake. From here, you will next take the incredible Llanberis pass that skirts the base of Snowdon, the highest peak in Britain south of the Scottish highlands at 3,560 feet high. Weather permitting; there will be opportunities to photograph the fabulous scenery. Arriving at lovely Betws y Coed; a spot renowned for its popularity with hill walkers and adventure seekers, you will have some free time to stretch your legs, do a bit of shopping, or enjoy a cup of tea before it's time to head back to Holyhead.

Please note: Walking on this tour is at the guest's discretion. Wheelchair guests should be accompanied by a companion to assist them. Participants should wear comfortable walking shoes, dress in layers and be prepared for the possibility of rain. Order of sites visited may vary.
