Croeso! - Welcome!
Mountains rising from misty seas and sparkling lakes, moors, and purple
heather, waterfalls and sheep and ponies grazing - North Wales offers some
of the most beautiful landscapes in Europe. From the moment you cross the
border from England into Wales, you know that you are in another country
with its own language, culture and way of life.
The past has left its mark everywhere - in prehistoric standing stones,
ancient Celtic hill forts, towering castles and trim chapels. There's industrial
heritage too since Wales has been exploited for its mineral wealth from
the Roman gold mines to the more recent slate quarries. Snowdonia is the
stronghold of Welsh, which is an ancient Celtic language though everyone
speaks English too.
Snowdonia's landscape was so beautiful and important it was one of
the first National Parks to be created in Britain. From the peaks with
an uncloudy sky, one can see as far as Scotland, Ireland and the Isle of
Man. Countryside like this has attracted geologists and naturalists and
inspired many artists and poets over the centuries. We can offer walking
from the gentlest lakeside paths to the most rugged buttresses and ridges.
Come and see!
