Tours whilst at resort
a We make a morning stop in the small but flourishing town of Machynlleth, where Wednesday is market day. Then more wonderful scenery as we encounter impressive Cader Idris mountain on our way to Aberystwyth. Walk along its promenade and maybe take a ride on the cliff railway to enjoy spectacular views (not included). On our return we enjoy the scenic coastal route via Tywyn.
b We head into Snowdonia and enjoy views of Snowdon as we travel via Capel-Curig to our first stop of the day in Betws-y-Coed, a village nestling in densely wooded hills. We then follow the pretty River Conwy to the resort of Llandudno where we make a stop. We return on a different route through the mountains via Blaenau Ffestiniog and make our way back to Barmouth on the scenic coastal route past Harlech Castle.
c Free day to explore Barmouth, or maybe take a ride on the Cambrian Coast Railway. Hugging the coastline, the line offers spectacular views and interesting places to see. (cost not included)
d Into Snowdonia again with a stop in Porthmadog. We then enjoy views of the Lleyn Peninsula en route to our lunchtime stop in Caernarfon. A treat on our return to the hotel as we take the Llanberis Pass with views of Snowdon.
Last Day We return by a completely different route with more wonderful mountain scenery via Rhayader and Builth Wells to our lunchtime stop in Abergavenny.
