2019 is the Year of Discovery. So dive in and let your own unique experience of Wales and Snowdonia wash over you. Because this is a country overflowing with wonder. For the thrill seekers there’s coasteering on the Atlantic-battered rocks of the Llŷn Peninsula, or 100 mph madness on the world’s fastest zip line in Bethesda. For the more sedate in mood, there are over 600 castles to explore (a more concentrated collection of turrets, baileys and moats cannot be found anywhere in the world).
Go high across the Snowdonia Mountains and elevated fortresses of Harlech and Criccieth, or low beside the seals and dolphins that pop up for a breather along the coastal cliff walks way out west. Artistic souls can invoke the poetry of Hedd Wyn with a gentle around Yr Ysgwrn, or choose from the many heritage centres and museums including the National Slate Museum at Llanberis.
Helping you chart your path through these wonders is The Wales Way, our exhilarating trio of national touring routes. The rugged North Wales Way begins with the awe-inspiring island of Anglesey, and sends you on a journey through history in the UNESCO World Heritage Site featuring 13th century town walls and castles built by Edward I. Alternatively, trek along The Cambrian Way, and follow the spine of Wales between Llandudno and Cardiff. Finally is the Coastal Way, which offers views that will refresh your soul.
If you just want to just stop, stand still and soak it all in – there’s no more peaceful place to do it. This is Wales. This is Snowdonia Mountains and Coast. Discover your epic here.
