Snowdonia is a glorious national park. Full of soaring mountains, lakes, views of the sea and some great places to eat and drink. Richard can give you all the tips you need about where to walk or scramble. Snowdon itself has many routes to the top. We’ve walked them all so please do ask us if you need any advice on that (there is always the train option as well). Please be aware that parking is limited and you need to pre-book space at the Pen-y-Pass car park at the foot of the PYG track up Snowdon. There are park and ride options based in Llanberris.

The Great Orme is stunning. You can drive around it (£3.50 toll) but better still is to walk or cycle. Views to rival California. Or you can take the tram to the summit, or even a cable car in season.
