Walking in North Wales

Walking in North Wales

A guided walk in Snowdonia

Walking in North Wales

In a nutshell. Long walks, short walks, town walks, country walks.

Rocky mountain paths and sand-between-your-toes strolls.

Forest footpaths and heritage trails.

Easy rambles for families, tough upland challenges for enthusiasts.

Walking is our most popular outdoor activity – from the list above it’s easy to see why.

Want a breezy, blow-the-cobwebs-away kind of walk along beaches and promenades?

Then follow sections of the Wales Coast Path.

Don’t think it’s flat all the way, mind – it also takes in the spectacular Great Orme and Little Orme headlands at Llandudno and a mountainous upland alternative between Conwy and Llanfairfechan.

Our countryside is pretty good, too.

Trails in the lovely Vale of Conwy wander through green, lush scenery and – in the case of Trefriw, for example – throw in some history and heritage along the way.

Some head up into the Gwydyr Forest Park, one of our most popular walking areas.

Its falls, hidden lakes and surprising industrial heritage are revealed on a network of 14 waymarked trails – Betws-y-Coed and Llanrwst are good starting points.

Mynydd Hiraethog on the opposite flank of the valley is a brooding moorland of purple heather, forest and lake.

It’s a very different – and very compelling – part of North Wales, undiscovered by many.

Start your exploration at the Llyn Brenig Visitor Centre.

At Bodlondeb Woods Nature Reserve near Conwy you can go orienteering or wildlife watching. And no visit to North Wales is complete without a walk in Snowdonia.

Betws-y-Coed, its gateway, is a thriving inland resort – call into its Visitor Centre for walking advice.
