Activities

Everybody arranges their own, and there's plenty of opportunity for everything, but we ask outdoor people to come prepared with waterproofs and spare clothing. Mountain weather can change very quickly. If in doubt, talk to experienced people. But there are countryside and coastal walks, beaches, cycle tracks, museums, castles and harbours, rich in history. The Welsh Highland Railway has been revived, from Caernarfon to Beddgelert and linking with the Ffestiniog Railway.
