Snowdonia

Tuesday 15th – Friday 18th June 2021

From £469pp

To say that this area of Wales really has it all is an understatement – from rugged mountain trails to scenic coastal paths and old industrial sites to heritage train lines, there really is something to please everyone in Snowdonia.

In 4 days, our Pre-Annual Meeting Tour will aim to showcase some of the best of this beautiful region of Wales by boat, rail and coach. You’ll see some of the region’s beautiful towns and most spectacular sights, including the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Caernarfon Castle. And a trip to this area wouldn’t be complete without seeing at least some of the natural splendour of Snowdonia National Park and the magnificent Snowdon.
