North Wales | Wales
North Wales is a holiday region which is great for traditional family holidays, offers with some of the best outdoor adventure activities in the world.
It is a haven for foodies, and boasts five of the six UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Wales; Conwy, Beaumaris, Harlech and Caernarfon Castles and the 200 year old Pontcysyllte Aqueduct which is 1000 feet long and 126 feet high and transports the Llangollen canal over the River Dee.
It's no surprise then that North Wales has caught the eye of Lonely Planet, making it on the the Best in Travel 2017 list, recognising the way the former industrial landscape has been reinvented to create a series of world class attractions, from high speed zip lining and inland surfing to underground trampolining in a 176-year-old disused slate mine.
Snowdonia National Park is a magnet for thrill seekers of all ages and you will find a terrific range of adventure activities on offer. The region also has some the best walking and cycling routes in Britain and has recently achieved Dark Sky Reserve status. Seeing is believing - experience the National Park's stunning landscape with beaches, tumbling rivers, mountains, lakes and waterfalls.
