FFESTINIOG RAILWAY (FULL DAY): Located on the Glaslyn Estuary, Porthmadog is a busy harbour town rich in maritime history and a major hub for narrow-gauge railways, with no less than three lines! Today, we have included a journey on the Ffestiniog Railway, the oldest independent railway company in the world, established in 1832. The historic train climbs over 700 feet from sea level into the mountains through tranquil pastures and magnificent forests, past lakes, and waterfalls


(FULL DAY): Developed as an upmarket seaside holiday town for its Edwardian and Victorian visitors, Llandudno is now Wales largest resort, uniquely situated between the Great and Little Ormes, it is home to a magnificent promenade, tearooms, and shops.


RAILWAY & LLANBERIS LAKE RAILWAY (FULL DAY): Enjoy a return journey on the Snowdon Mountain Railway to the rooftop of Wales and weather permitting we will be rewarded with some fantastic views. At 1,085ft, Mount Snowdon is the highest mountain in Wales! (NB. For the 2022 season the services is only going as far as Clogwyn Station which is 3/4 of the way up Mount Snowdon. This is a 2 hour round trip including a 30 min photo-opportunity stop at the unsheltered station).
We have also arranged a ride on the nearby Llanberis Lake Railway, a narrow-gauge railway which follows the stunning lake shores.
