The breathtaking Snowdonia mountains dominate North Wales. The highest British peaks outside of Scotland, they’re the centre of Snowdonia National Park and a mecca for hikers, climbers, cyclists and rafting or canoeing at the Rivers Treweryn and Dee.
If you fancy being a little less energetic why not sit back and relax and enjoy the view from the comfort of your steam pulled carriage riding some of Britain's most scenic railways, especially Ffestiniog and Cambrian Coast lines. History buffs will love North Wales’ formidable castles at Caernarfon, Conwy and Harlech – as well as the Italianate village of Portmeirion, famously used in The Prisoner.
