This region of Wales is steeped in history and was known as the Kingdom of Gwynedd for almost a millennium. The mountainous stronghold of Snowdonia was the centre of that realm and remains today the centre of the Welsh Language and cultural identity. Besides the outstanding raw natural beauty, it is also the home of the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and canal and the many Edwardian castles and town walls of the region. Conwy Castle, built during medieval times by Edward I during his conquest of Wales remains a popular tourist attraction in the region. Caernarfon Castle is another impressive castle that can be visited during your tour.
Snowdonia is the most popular national park in Wales and offers visitors breath-taking views of the surrounding mountains and valleys. Visitors tend to concentrate their time by Mount Snowdon. Groups can enjoy the Snowdon Mountain Railway which will take them to the summit and see the spectacular views from the top.Ask a Question Get a Quote
