Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel in time for dinner.

Day 2 Llandudno & Great Orme
Today, we enjoy a lovely drive via Colwyn Bay to the “queen of Welsh resorts”, Llandudno, where we spend time enjoying its beautiful Victorian architecture, Edwardian elegance, pier, shops and attractions. We enjoy a ride to the top of the Great Orme on the beautifully restored tram which climbs to 1500m, stopping at the Halfway Station to visit the exhibition about this fascinating funicular. From the summit, there are outstanding views across Anglesey and the peaks of Snowdonia.

Day 3 Snowdon Mountain Railway & Llanberis Lake Railway
At 3,560ft, Mount Snowdon is the highest mountain in England and Wales. We take a ride on the Snowdon Mountain Railway for a journey to “the rooftop of Wales” and, weather permitting, we will have spectacular views. The Visitor Centre has a gift shop and café and there will be plenty of time to enjoy the scenery and views before we make our descent back down. This afternoon, we take a ride on the Llanberis Lake Railway, a narrow gauge railway which follows the shores of the lake.

Day 4 Ffestiniog Railway
After breakfast, we travel through the spectacular scenery of the Snowdonia National Park as we make our way to the seaside town of Porthmadog, via the pretty village of Beddgelert, to board a train on the Ffestiniog Railway. Sit back and relax as we enjoy the 13.5 mile journey with dramatic views of mountains, lakes and waterfalls around every corner. The track climbs 700ft from sea level as we journey towards the slate quarrying town of Blaenau Ffestiniog. From here we travel by coach to the pretty village of Betws-y-Coed where we make a short stop before continuing back to our hotel.

Day 5 Departure
After breakfast, we make our way home.
