In a nutshell. Bustling mountain resort at the gateway to Snowdonia.
Who says that Wales is closed on Sundays?
Go to Betws-y-Coed on any Sunday of the year (December included) and you’ll find a place well and truly open for business.
It’s not just the busy shops, selling everything from outdoor gear to quality crafts, which attract visitors.
Betws-y-Coed came into being in the first place thanks to the early Victorian travellers who relished its beautiful wooded setting at the convergence of four rushing rivers.
And it’s this location, largely unchanged since those times, that’s the real magnet.
Betws-y-Coed itself, of course, has changed.
It’s a full-on mountain resort with all kinds of attractions and activities.
Other outdoor activities include canyoning and scrambling – and if you want subterranean adrenaline thrills there are these too, at the nearby Go Below mine exploring experience.
New for 2015 is Zip Below Xtreme - five kilometres of pure underground adrenalin including the world's longest and deepest zip lines.
Betws-y-Coed is the perfect launch-pad for exploring the Snowdonia National Park.
You’ll find one of the Park’s main visitor centres here, and it’s easy to ditch the car and hop on a Snowdon Sherpa bus for an eco-friendly tour.
Or use the Conwy Valley Line - a scenic rail journey that will take you inland to Blaenau Ffestiniog, where you can connect with the Ffestiniog Railway, or down to the coastal resort of Llandudno via the Conwy Valley.
On the Sherpa, you’re soon into dramatic countryside.
