Holidays in North Wales
North Wales caravan holidays and holiday parks
A North Wales holiday is given something extra special by the magical site of Snowdonia. Wales’ highest peak dominates the skyline, and as it lowers, you’ll find green valleys dotted with cottages. The coast is full of golden sand and natural structures that have formed over thousands of years. A North Wales caravan holiday is the go-to package for a hiking holiday, with rugged rocky hill paths coupling with a harmonious horizon to bring you lifelong memories.
The best North Wales holiday parks are home to Haven, and to you for as long as you choose. Each dotted along the Irish Sea coast, they host entertainment, activities and dining to make your stay a special one. Fancy bringing your dog? Check out our dog friendly holidays to North Wales.
Things to do in North Wales
If you're a surfer, kayaker or general adventurer, you can take your pick from fearsome tidal races or sheltered bays and estuaries. Sedately sail and paddle around in ravishing still lakes, or roar through whitewater rafting and kayaking. Smaller water babies can happily stick to the miles of sandy beaches, including the Blue Flag-worthy Black Rock Sands. The hidden cove of Porthor is known locally as Whistling Sands. Take a stroll to find out why, as you hear the beach singing – or whistling – as individual grains of sand rub against one another.
For a day off from big days out, try a breath-taking train journey through the Cambrian coastlines of Snowdonia National Park. Or go medieval on a castle visit: Beaumaris, Caernarfon, Conwy and Harlech are all pristine examples of historical military architecture.
