When it comes to location, hotels in Snowdonia are the best accommodation choice for those who are looking to be right in the centre of all the exciting activities that the region has to offer. Given the very impressive title of the Adventure Capital of Europe, North Wales has plenty to offer its guests.
Not only is there an abundance of great things to try, many of them are set within the scenic hills and mountains of the Snowdonia National Park. Popular with both locals and visitors alike, this national park sees thousands of visitors each year.
It’s also home to the tallest mountain in Wales, Snowdon. Known as Yr Wyddfa in the Welsh language, this mountain stands at 1,085m above sea level. If you don’t fancy trekking all the way to the top, you’ve also got the option of a scenic train journey to the summit.
When it comes to unique activities, North Wales certainly doesn’t fall short. Zip lines, trampolining in caves and surfing on artificial lagoons are just a few of the interesting activities you can find here.
There’s also plenty of opportunities for more traditional days out, including bike rides in gorgeous Welsh woodlands, horse riding tours and an extensive amount of way-marked walking trails to try on the more sunnier days.
If you’re a keen walker, the village of Betws-y-Coed will offer you plenty of outdoors shops, so you can stock up on equipment and pick up a few maps or two of the local area.
Surfers should stop at Rhosneigr on the Isle of Anglesey. This seaside village has plenty of surfing shops, and a beach which is popularly used for windsurfing, wakeboarding and surfing during the summer months.
One thing you’re likely to notice about North Wales is how rural it can feel. It doesn’t take long to find places which are completely serene and offer an escape from the busyness of everyday life. Waterfalls, secluded valleys and stunning lakes are just a few of the sights you can expect to see.
You’ll even find quiet places along the coast, which can often be a challenge in other places. If you’re looking for a holiday where you can feel like a true adventurer, North Wales should be first on your list.
