Leisurely Ways to Explore Snowdonia

As one of the leading holidays parks in North Wales, we know how popular the area is for visitors – especially as it has recently been voted the 4th best region to visit in the world. One of the reasons for this popularity is the area is known for its picturesque landscape and stunning mountain ranges. Staying in our holiday park enables you to visit this fantastic part of the world whenever you fancy.

Now you may take one look at Snowdonia and think that mountains are not your thing, but don’t panic there are lots of ways you can enjoy the mountains without exerting yourself too much.

Aber Falls

Aber Falls is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Wales, which are best seen after heavy rainfall. Set within the hidden gem that is the Coedydd National Nature Reserve on your stroll there you are likely to see some amazing wildlife as well as some stunning scenery.  If you’re really lucky, you may even see some wild horses along the 2-mile path. If you a history fan, then keep your eyes out for some Bronze Age remains that can be spotted along the way. There is a pool at the bottom of Aber Falls that is freezing cold, but you may find people swimming here in the summer.

Dol Idris Path

To the south of Snowdonia, at the foot of Cadair Idris, the Dol Idris path is a circular path that is good for people with all kinds of fitness levels. The Snowdonia National Park Authority has spent the last few years developing this area in order to make it more suitable for visitors, and the path itself is suitable for wheelchair users up to about 1.25 kilometres. There are also lots of facilities along the route, including toilets, picnic benches and a car park. Don’t worry though; this does not detract from the beautiful meadows and forests, and the lake is so clear that you can see fish swimming about in it.

Mawddach Trail

Popular with cyclists and walkers in summer, this is a relatively flat trail which follows the track bed of the old Barmouth to Ruaben railway line. The Mawddach trail also follows the Mawddach river and is mostly concrete and gravel paths, making it quite an accessible route. As well as the usual beautiful wildlife and scenery that you get in this part of Wales, if you take the Mawddach Trail you will also see the salt marsh – which is classed as a ‘Special Area of Conservation’.
