Snowdonia

Snowdonia in North Wales offers world-class walking and stunning scenery. Not only do people holiday here because of the incredible landscapes including mountains, rivers, lakes and forests, but also because of its unique history and culture. This region is an exceptional area of Britain and stretches north and west to the Irish sea, south to Cadair Idris and east to Bala Lake. The Macs Adventure walking tours concentrate in the Snowdonia National Park, which boasts the highest mountain in England and Wales and the largest natural lake in Wales, with an an extensive network of walking trails.

We have chosen the best B&B's and guesthouses this area has to offer, we will also transfer your bags from village to village and provide you with GPS tracks on our Macs Adventure Smartphone App.

On both of the tours we offer in this region, Walking in Snowdonia National Park and Escape to Snowdonia you will have the opportunity to walk up Snowdon should you wish. You can either choose the 8 day tour or 5 day escape. Whichever version you choose you are sure to enjoy hearing the Welsh language spoken in a local pub, the traditional fruit loaf, Bara Brith which is mouth-wateringly good and hearing snippets of history from the mining heritage to mythical Welsh kings and princes.

  • Why Visit and Walk in Snowdonia National Park?
    Why Visit and Walk in Snowdonia National Park?

    Snowdonia National Park was opened on October 18th, 1951. It is a living and working area and covers over 823 miles of very diverse landscapes. It is also home to over 26,000 people and is the largest National Park in Wales. It is absolutely steeped in history and culture and half the population speak the local language of Cymraeg.

    It is here in North Wales where there are some of the highest peaks south of Scotland. Whilst they are not on the scale of the Alps or the Himalayas, they still provide stunning and dramatic scenery everywhere you walk and 52% of the terrain here is covered by mountains.

    As well as the mountains walking here also provides you with lakeland scenery, rushing rivers, woods or forests. It is easy to imagine back in the 13th century when Edward 1 invaded Wales and then built a slew of castles in order to hold on to his reign. The castles here, such as Beaumaris and Harlech and the town walls of Caernarvon and Conwy are considered to be some of the finest examples of military architecture in Europe. A wilder place back then, but even so Snowdonia is still considered to be fairly wild, especially its rugged landcapes of ridges and peaks!

    The National Park's aims are to "conserve and enhance the natural beauty, wildlife and cultural heritage of the area, promote opportunities to understand and enjoy its special qualities; and to foster the economic and social well-being of its communities." Sounds like a great plan!
