Itinerary

  • Great Orme: Start your day with a drive on the Great Orme Road, with spectacular views of cliffs, wildlife, and the Irish Sea and Anglesey whilst learning about Llandudno's history and the Orme's ancient past
  • Conwy Town and Castle photo stop: You will have the opportunity to walk through this Unesco village and ancient Castle town of Conwy and its castle walls to view the castle’s domineering and towering walls and catch that picture-perfect photo from the Conwy estuary bridge. Walk down to the picturesque quayside and view its old Tudor buildings and architecture
  • Caernarfon and Castle: A tour of Caernarfon and its immense castle. King Edward I created what is surely the most impressive of Wales’s castles. To this very day it remains a brute and intimidating fortress, and worthy of its Unesco World Heritage status no less. Enjoy walking the colorful and quaint cobbled streets and the many welsh art and craft shops
  • Portmeiron: A tour of Portmeirion, wandering around the colorful renowned Italian style coastal tourist village set in stunning surroundings and gardens. There are shops, cafés, tea-rooms and restaurants. Described as an artful and playful village, with a fantastic collection of architectural relics. Also known as a romantic and picturesque, relaxing and often enchanting village. A “happy relief” from the “rigid irrationalities and the calculated follies” of the modern world
  • Snowdonia viewpoint and the Nant gwynant pass: A drive through part of the Snowdonia national park and one of its spectacular driving routes. We stop at the awe-inspiring viewpoint of the valley below and its lakes, and the towering Snowdonia viewpoint and mountain range in front of us
  • Tu-Hwnt-I’r Bont: A chance to get a wonderful photo of a picturesque setting of the 15th-century grade II listed building, situated on the left bank of the River Conwy across Pont Fawr and the indigo jones bridge
  • Swallow Falls: An area of natural beauty where the River Llugwy flows through a narrow chasm creating a spectacular waterfall amongst a background of beech, conifer and birch trees. The falls can be viewed from a location above the river, or there are steps leading down to a platform close to the river edge
  • Ugly House: A brief stop at a very unique looking house. Named as the Ugly house, however it has a distinct beauty about it, as well as an interesting history
  • Conwy valley: A scenic drive through Conwy valley and the traditional welsh villages on route back to Llandudno
