“Croeso i Gymru” – “Welcome to Wales”
The Celtic language of Wales is spoken by around 21% of people in Wales, and is taught as a compulsory subject in all Welsh schools today. Even though you may not be a Celt, you will be guaranteed a very warm welcome if you visit this small country.
It has some of the most varied and interesting scenery, including the Snowdonian range of mountains with peaks reaching over 3000 feet, the highest in Wales; or the North Wales coastline where there are many resorts with picturesque harbours and sandy beaches such as Colwyn Bay and Llandudno. The Edwardian Castles that are all World Heritage Inscribed Sites can be found at Caernarfon, Conwy, Beaumaris and Harlech, not to forget the 700 year old Chirk Castle which has been occupied continuously since it was built.
Should the idea of caravan holidays in Wales appeal you and your family you’ll be guaranteed an exciting holiday with many activities to take part in and places to explore in the breath-taking destination around Snowdonia.
Snowdonia National Park
An amazing adventure playground consisting of mountains, woodland, steep-river gorges, waterfalls and beaches for a holiday that is exhilarating, wild and diverse for everyone. Covering 823 square miles boasting not only the highest mountain in England and Wales, Mount Snowdon -Yr Wyddfa, but also the largest natural lake in Wales, Snowdonia is an area steeped in local history and culture. There are 9 mountain ranges with walking and climbing activities for the not so faint hearted, with many peaks at over 915 metres high. At the summit of Yr Wyddfa, you can take high tea in the café to refresh you after your climb.
Spend the day fishing the waters of Lake Bala for the rare, reclusive gwyniad, a deep-water fish; or for perch, roach, pike or the enormous feroux trout. Ash, rowan, hazel and oak woodlands are to be found throughout the park with plenty or rugged tracks for you to participate in mountain biking challenges.
The river Tryweryn in the National park provides Olympic grade rapids for white-water rafting or for the younger family members, a more sedate canoe paddle through the woods to Lake Bala.
If you are a fan of extreme sports there are several zip line attractions in the Snowdonia area, with one taking place underground in an old slate mine at Blaenau Ffestiniog. Travel at speed down zip wires, 1300 feet below the ground finishing with a 70 feet free-fall jump.
Snowdon Mountain Railway
Travel on the railway for an exhilarating journey to the summit of Mount Snowdon, at 3560 feet high, with awe-inspiring views and stunning scenery to enjoy a great family day out.
