Overview

Holiday Highlights

  • Explore coastal towns and villages in Anglesey such as Beaumaris, Holyhead and Malltraeth.
  • Take in the views of Snowdonia and the Lleyn Peninsula from Anglesey.
  • Whilst in Snowdonia, learn about the history of the North Wales slate industry and lives of the quarrymen on this trail.
  • Visit Snowdonia's mountains through forests and open moorland as well as lake shores with wide open views.

Your holiday begins in Caernarfon; your base for the first five nights of this combined holiday. Sinking your toes into the pristine sand of a sweeping bay and listening to the music of the waves is a fine way to end a day’s rambling. Anglesey’s coastal path is one of the best kept secrets of Wales’ largest island, steeped in history, wildlife and natural beauty.

Anglesey offers a wide a variety of walks to choose from and on any walk you can pass towering cliffs, sandy beaches, woodlands, mountains, marshes and grassland.

We have chosen walks in the four corners of this area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to enable you to enjoy as much of the variety of the island as possible. Walk from Malltraeth, crossing over to Llanddwyn Island, with views of Snowdonia and the Lleyn Peninsula. You will walk along the coastal path from Holyhead on Holy Island until you reach Trearddur Bay, stopping en route at Ellin’s Tower where you can watch nesting birds on the cliff face. You can visit Beaumaris Castle on the south coast before arriving at Penmon Priory, home of the Penmon Point lighthouse.

During your four walking days on Anglesey you enjoy a variety of views, from limestone escarpments, wide beaches and sand dunes on the southern coast to dramatic sea cliffs and remote landscapes on the northern coast.

You will then be transported (if you do not have your own transport) to the second centre in Llanberis for the final six nights to enjoy our The Wonders of Snowdonia holiday. This introduction to Snowdonia explores the pathways over hills and through valleys and forests in a part of Wales which became world-renowned for its slate quarries. It was the need to get the slate to market that led to the development of the narrow-gauge railways which now draw steam rail enthusiasts and other tourists to the area.

The walks on offer are very varied; some are popular routes near attractive tourist towns such as Beddgelert and Betws-y-Coed whilst others are routes into the quiet hills past remote sheep farms affording far-reaching views.

The Snowdonia Slate Trail is a 83 mile trail which takes you on a journey back in time to when Snowdonia was the centre of the slate industry. Whilst you will complete the entire route, we have chosen the highlights of the route to walk on this holiday.

This holiday offers varied walking, on well-established paths, in Snowdonia’s beautiful mountain scenery beneath cascading waterfalls and across moorland, along lake shores and the banks of the Glaslyn river through patches of rare indigenous forest. The routes offer picture postcard views towards the sea and across classic U-shaped valleys with the peaks of Snowdon, Tryfan and Cnicht (‘The Matterhorn of Snowdonia’) looming above.
